ESWET's comments - ITRE vote on the Circular Economy Package

ESWET welcomes the adoption of four opinions on the Circular Economy Package in the ITRE Committee of the European Parliament.

We believe that the waste management policy, in order to bring benefits to all EU citizens, should be based on efficient and sustainable solutions. Waste-to-Energy is one of them, as it complements Circular Economy by dealing with waste not suitable for recycling that would be otherwise landfilled. In addition, it helps recovering important materials (metals and minerals). Therefore, we believe that the voice of Waste-to-Energy sector should be taken into account.

ESWET also prepared voting recommendations for the vote on the Circular Economy Package in the ENVI Committee, in line with the above mentioned integrated approach to waste management.
