Press Release | EuRIC event set to gather recyclers and policymakers in Brussels to discuss regulatory hurdles

Early bird registration is now open for EuRIC’s regulatory event Boosting recycling through future-fit policies at the BluePoint, Brussels on 30 March. The event will unite both policymakers and experts from across the recycling value chain to discuss mounting regulatory pressures. Recyclers will have the opportunity to hear from Mr Aurel Ciobaneu-Dordea, Director of DG Environment, in charge of the circular economy.  

Raw materials have never been more at the forefront of EU policymaking. From the EU’s proposed Waste Shipment Regulation to the Critical Raw Materials Act, the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation, the Textiles Strategy, upcoming ecodesign and chemicals legislation, and much more, the European recycling industry has never faced such a significant wave of regulatory challenges and opportunities.

At the same time, policies have a key role in further acknowledging the instrumental role of the recycling industries in achieving a climate-neutral and resource-efficient society envisaged under the EU’s Green Deal. More specifically, recognition of a vibrant, well-functioning secondary raw materials market that facilitates the uptake of recycled materials in the manufacture of new products is often lacking.

At this critical juncture, European policymakers and stakeholders representing all materials from across the recycling value chain are invited to Brussels for a frank discussion on these regulatory hurdles. At Boosting recycling through future-fit policies, we will discuss how – in the presence of the right enabling conditions and policy framework – a thriving European recycling industry can enable the circular economy and preserve resources for future generations.
