News - EFIC press statement on the EU renewable energy directive (RED II)
With a press statement recently released |http://bit.ly/2vYQXn5|, EFIC stresses on the importance of linking the revision of the Directive with the cascading use of resources, the EU waste hierarchy and the circular economy.
EFIC is therefore joining the call, shared by other stakeolders including ZeroWasteEurope, for a) the introduction of a new sustainability criteria for energy from waste to ensure all energy from waste is done in line with the cascading use principle, the EU waste hierarchy and the circular economy; b) the removal of subsidies for “waste to energy” from mixed municipal and industrial waste to support separate collection and recycling targets.
