Biowaste Set to Play Central Role in Emerging CE

Obligatory Source Separation of Biowaste needed to Maximise Potential

On the 6 September 2017, ECN organised a workshop in Brussels in collaboration with the European Committee of the Regions (CoR). It was held under the patronage of Dr Babette Winter, CoR Member and Rapporteur of the Circular Economy, and State Secretary for Culture and Europe in the Thuringian State Chancellery, Germany. Over 80 delegates heard from representatives of the European Commission, European Parliament, member states, industry organisations and municipalities about biowaste and revisions to the Waste Framework Directive.

The workshop was timed to coincide with trilogue discussions about biowaste in the revised Waste Framework Directive (WFD). The morning session focussed on policy, with the afternoon session concentrating on practice.
