REA releases a clarification note on REACH, CLP and COMAH regs based on the latest update from the HSE
REA has released a note regarding the application of REACH, CLP and COMAH regulations to digestates. To read the note, please click HERE.
Defra and the HSE have seen the note and confirmed that our interpretation is correct. However, with regard to COMAH regulations interpretation is not straightforward as the HSE cannot currently provide a definitive answer on whether COMAH applies to digestates or not.
REA will continue to liaise with the HSE to clarify this matter and will keep its members updated on progress.
Higher recycling targets to drive transition to a Circular Economy with new jobs and sustainable growth
On 2nd July the Commission adopted proposals to turn Europe into a more circular economy and boost recycling in the Member States. Achieving the new waste targets would create 580 000 new jobs compared to today's performance, while making Europe more competitive and reducing demand for costly scarce resources. The proposals also mean lower environmental impacts and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Click HERE to read more about the proposals.
