FEAD calls for EU-wide mandatory GPP criteria for plastic products
FEAD members welcome the non-legislative Public Procurement Package : “Increasing the impact of public investment through efficient and professional procurement” and support the Commission’s continued efforts to ensure that the public procurement rules are properly implemented across the internal market. FEAD believes that public procurement, and in particular GPP–green public procurement, is one of the tools that can contribute to the transition from a linear to a circular economy.

Opening the EU market to organic fertilisers: a step further in the right direction of a circular economy
On 24 October, the European Parliament adopted its final position on the CE marked fertilising products Regulation. FEAD welcomes the decision of the European Parliament to maintain the limit value for lead as proposed by the European Commission (120 mg/kg dry matter).

Ambitious push measures need to be accompanied by pull measures
In view of the upcoming trilogue meeting on the Circular Economy Package on 25 October, FEAD members call on the EU institutions to maintain the ambitious legally binding targets for recycling and landfill diversion, which are a central part of the revised package. To balance the push with pull measures, the right framework conditions along with economic instruments need to be put in place. A stronger demand for recycled materials resulting in resilient markets needs to be created, in other words, the circle needs to be closed.

FEAD together with ESWET and CEWEP is pleased to publish a report prepared by Ineris Institute addressing the question of air emissions monitoring, particularly within the IED (Industrial Emissions Directive).
The report focuses on reliability and accuracy at very low concentrations, which has significant implications on the drawing up and review of BREFs (Best available technique REFerence documents) and the setting of new IED-based BATAELs (Best Available Technique Associated Emission Levels).
