FEAD welcomes the European Green Deal

FEAD welcomes the ambition of the EU Green Deal.

By positioning itself as a key partner in the EU public debate, FEAD highlights the role of private waste management companies to enable the Circular Economy.

Creating conditions for robust recycling markets, based on a strong demand for recyclates, recognising avoided CO2 emissions in the entire waste management chain, guaranteeing environmentally sound waste treatment rules, are all essential components for the success of the EU Green Deal.

FEAD Position Paper on Chemical Recycling

By recognising the interest to closely monitor its development and potential, FEAD addresses three key areas pivotal to the ongoing discussions on chemical recycling at the European level.

A need to conduct independent assessments of chemical recycling’s CO2 footprint and costs compared to mechanical recycling as well as the classification of chemical recycling installation plants as waste treatment plants represent key elements that need to be taken in account in discussions at the EU level.
