CONAI: deposit return system may not be the most efficient way to reach future recycling targets in a 73,3% recycling rate country like Italy.
A study by Bocconi and the Wuppertal Institut, promoted by CONAI and supported by Expra, presented in Brussels: "Screening the efficiency of packaging waste in Europe". Italy? Recycle more and at lower costs.
CONAI published the “Specific Plan for the Prevention and Management of Packaging and Packaging Waste”.
As from 1 July, it will be reduced from EUR 55 to 25/tonne, with a saving for paper and cardboard packaging users of over 135 million Euros. In 2022, on the other hand, contribution diversification will be extended to packaging in composite material, different from those for liquids.
Available the English versione of Guidelines and a new site for the do-it-yourself packaging environmental label.
CONAI has published an update of the information note for the license to use the registered trademark Punto Verde / Green Dot / Grüne Punkt.
