ECHA Workshop on the “Pilot Project on Recovered Substances exempted from REACH regulation”

Wednesday, 30 November

Ahead of the Commission’s release of the Packaging and Packaging Waste Regulation (PPWR), FEAD’s plastics expert Monica Harting-Pfeifer from Remondis, Germany, presented on “Compliance and quality expectations for recycled plastics” at the European Chemicals Agency’s (ECHA) Workshop on the results of the “Pilot Project on Recovered Substances exempted from REACH regulation”.

“Plastic recycling is in a transition and we, as recyclers and waste managers are very happy to be recognised as sustainable secondary raw material producers. We need to be careful, as high efforts on coordination are needed, considering the many on-going, parallel actions (legislation, industry initiatives, standardisation). But if we manage this, we can achieve the most sustainable, efficient and trustworthy results,” FEAD’s expert noted.
