EU consultation on Circular Economy

circular economyThe European Commission has opened (deadline 20th August 2015) a public consultation on the Circular Economy based on a proposed ‘Roadmap’  intending to make more ambitious the previous 2014 ‘Circular Economy Package’. This indicates that an Action Plan will identify key measures across the value chain, citing as possible specific areas of intervention waste management, development of markets for secondary raw materials (e.g. organic fertilisers) and critical raw materials (including phosphorus).

Make your input to this consultation (individuals, organisation) by deadline 20/8/2015
