The European Parliament has suggested an amendment to the Circular Economy Action Plan (CEAP) which calls on the European Commission to “to define a common EU-wide approach for the management of residual municipal waste that is non-recyclable to ensure its optimal treatment”. The RDF Industry Group wholeheartedly supports the European Parliament’s call for the Commission to develop an EU-wide strategy for the management of residual waste. Such a strategy will be vital in ensuring that waste can be moved out of landfill and up the waste hierarchy to energy recovery, whilst ensuring sufficient (but not over-) capacity of EfW in Europe. This will reduce overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from waste management, thus aiding the achievement of climate neutrality and the transition to a circular economy.
