BIR shares EuRIC’s concern about impact of export restrictions on circular economy

EuRIC, in an open letter to executives of the European Commission, the European Parliament and the Slovenian Presidency of the Council, calls for a clear distinction in the legal regime between ‘problematic waste streams’ and raw materials from recycling ( CMA).

Almost 300 European companies and national recycling associations co-signed the EuRIC letter highlighting the potential disastrous effects of a general restriction on RMR exports.

“At the height of the pandemic in Europe, the recycling industry was almost universally seen as ‘essential’ and was therefore allowed to continue to operate,” said BIR President Tom Bird. “It is only by maximizing the substitution of primary raw materials by raw materials from recycling that we will succeed in optimizing the climate change mitigation effects of recycling. And what is true at European level is even truer at global level. Therefore, one of the first courses of action should be to engage with the recycling industry, listen to our powerful arguments, and create the circumstances in which the massive environmental potential of our industry can be fully unleashed. No circular economy can be seriously considered and achieved without a fluid global market for raw materials from recycling ”.
