Press release: Bio-waste Sector ready to act on Circular Economy Package

EU Parliament voted on Circular Economy Package – Waste Proposal

The European Compost Network welcomes the adoption of the Circular Economy Package by the European Parliament. As part of the package, the revised Waste Framework Directive recognises the potential of the bioeconomy and provides vital incentives that will boost the circularity of bio-waste across Europe. For the first time, the way is paved that annually around 100 million tonnes of valuable organic resources will be separately collected and recycled.
