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.
The CONAI Board of Directors has resolved a further reduction of the Environmental Contribution (or CAC) for paper and cardboard and almost all plastic packaging, starting from 2022.
After assessing the requests of the Comieco and Coreve supply chain consortia, the CONAI Board of Directors approved the increase in the Environmental Contribution for paper and glass packaging.
CONAI Board of Directors approved the restructuring of the Environmental Contribution for paper, plastic, and wood packaging, which will come into force on 1 January 2020.
From 1 January 2019, the Environmental Contribution will be reduced to € 3.00/ton for steel packaging and more than halved for aluminium packaging (€ 15.00/ton). There will also be further benefits for the reuse of wooden pallets.
