The steel sector is one of the most challenging sectors to decarbonise and has recently received special attention owing to the potential use of low-carbon hydrogen (green and blue) to reduce its fuel combustion and process-related carbon emissions. This report addresses concerns that might arise while evaluating the potential and limitations of the future role of hydrogen in decarbonising the iron and steel industries. The report provides a comprehensive overview of current technical knowledge, ...

Living in the EU: Circular economy

In sintesi 16-03-2021

Circular economy is a production and consumption model that involves reusing, repairing, refurbishing and recycling existing materials and products to keep materials within the economy. It implies that waste becomes a resource, consequently minimising the actual amount of waste. The circular model is generally the antithesis of a traditional, linear economic model, which is based on a 'take-make-consume-throw away' pattern. This paper looks at the job creation potential and added value produced by ...

New circular economy action plan

In sintesi 04-02-2021

Moving to a circular economy is key for achieving EU climate action, nature protection and sustainability ambitions, and also delivering benefits for innovation, growth and jobs.

Questo studio, commissionato dal dipartimento tematico Diritti dei cittadini e affari costituzionali del Parlamento europeo su richiesta della commissione per le petizioni (PETI), verte sull'utilizzo diffuso delle materie plastiche e prende in esame il crescente consenso sui potenziali impatti ecotossicologici di tali materiali, in particolare delle particelle di plastica più piccole, chiamate microplastiche. Analizza le possibili strategie di mitigazione volte a ridurre l'ampia diffusione della ...

The European Union (EU) Eco-Management and Audit Scheme (EMAS) is a voluntary management instrument for companies and other organisations wanting to evaluate, report and continuously improve their environmental performance. In 2007, as part of its commitment to making a long-term contribution to sustainable development, the European Parliament became one of the few EU institutions and the first parliament in the EU to obtain EMAS certification. Through its environmental management system it is able ...

EU fertilising products

Briefing 26-06-2019

Fertilising products are used to improve plant growth, mainly in agriculture, enabling higher crop yields. However, they are associated with some challenges as regards security of supply, the environment and health. Although the 2003 Fertilisers Regulation, which aimed at ensuring an internal market in fertilisers, has been effective, it mainly addresses mineral fertilisers and deters the introduction of new types of fertilisers. In March 2016, the Commission put forward a legislative proposal on ...

Nel maggio 2018 la Commissione europea ha presentato una proposta legislativa tesa ad affrontare il problema dei rifiuti marini, incentrata sui dieci articoli di plastica monouso e attrezzi da pesca rinvenuti più di frequente sulle spiagge europee che, complessivamente, rappresentano circa il 70 % dei rifiuti marini presenti su tali spiagge. I negoziati interistituzionali con il Consiglio sono sfociati in un accordo nel dicembre 2018, sul quale il Parlamento dovrebbe votare nella seconda tornata ...

La plastica nell'economia circolare

In sintesi 05-09-2018

La plastica è ampiamente utilizzata in tutti i settori dell'economia ma lo smaltimento dei rifiuti di plastica pone numerose sfide. Per affrontarle, a gennaio 2018 la Commissione ha pubblicato una strategia per la plastica nell'economia circolare. Il Parlamento europeo dovrebbe approvare una risoluzione d'iniziativa su tale comunicazione durante la tornata di settembre 2018.

Although waste management in the EU has improved considerably in recent decades, over a quarter of municipal waste is still landfilled and less than half is recycled or composted, with wide variations between Member States. Improving waste manage¬ment could deliver positive effects for the environment, climate, human health and the economy. As part of a shift towards a circular economy, the European Commission made four legislative proposals introducing new waste-management targets regarding reuse ...
