New 95 magazine: about recycling and the value of raw materials
As part of its policy for strategic raw material provision, the EU wants half of all raw materials used in Western Europe to have been recovered through recycling, in 20 years time. At present, 'a mere' 15 percent of European raw materials are obtained from recycling. Recycling and the reuse of raw materials are therefore set to become even more important, and in the near future the recycling sector will become a complete new branch of industry, with hundreds of thousands of jobs.
But how much does raw material recovery actually cost? What does the ever growing recycling obligation mean for European manufacturers? And what role can ARN and the PST plant play in this process? The latest edition of 95 magazine is focused on the theme ‘Raw materials’, and sketches out the giant steps currently being taken towards achieving a European circular economy.
