IMPACTPaperRec / About / EU policy

In line with European waste policy objectives.

IMPACTPapeRec is completely aligned with European policy objectives regarding the prioritisation of recycling and recovery instead of landfilling as defined by current European and national legislation on waste such as the Waste Framework Directive and the proposal of the European Commission for a Circular Economy stressing the importance of separate collection.

IMPACTPapeRec is also related to emerging European initiatives whose objectives include the reuse of byproducts and waste fractions in alternative production processes to avoid landfilling such as the European Innovation Partnership on Raw Materials “IMPACT – Introduction and Improvement of Separate Paper Collection to avoid landfilling and incineration”.

Knowledge and results from the project will serve as a basis for the development of new regulations and standards in the future, both at EU and regional level.
