The three pillars of Life+
The Life+ programme is based on three important pillars:
- Nature & Biodiversity
- Information & Communication
- Environment Policy & Governance
The Life+ subsidy that ARN received for recycling car-shredder residue comes under the last pillar. In this field, ARN is a pioneer and the PST plant in Tiel partly serves as a demonstration project for other EU countries.
The aim of ARN’s project is to demonstrate that the PST plant can achieve the EU’s set objective of 95% car recycling (85% re-use and 10% useful application). ARN has already more than proven that these objectives can be achieved. The Life+ project will continue to run until 2015.
