CONAI, following a series of cost increases related to the collection of packaging waste, amid general inflation, and the simultaneous reduction in revenues from the sale of post-consumption packaging reported by the CIAL, COMIECO and COREPLA Consortia, has assessed the scenario of the corresponding recycling chains - worsened beyond expectations - and seen a reduction in the capital reserves of the three Consortia.
From 1 January 2022, the Contribution for steel will decrease to € 12/tonne, the one for aluminium to € 10/tonne and the one for glass to € 33/tonne. Plastic divided into five levels based on recyclability and the costs of collection, sorting and recycling costs: lower values for four, unchanged for one.
The CONAI Board of Directors, with the opinion of the CIAL, decided to reduce the Environmental Contribution for aluminum packaging: from the current 45.00 Euro/ton to 35.00 Euro/ton. The reduction will be operational by 1st of June.
