Environment Agency’s EQual Programme Update
REA are working in partnership with the Environment Agency’s EQual programme during the next three years. EQual is a major LIFE+ programme that will support and encourage the use of products made from waste. The output from the programme will help companies seeking to achieve end of waste status for their waste-derived products, inform a more consistent and streamlined regulatory approach, and improve end market confidence.
ORG are assisting with:
- the development of a Quality Protocol (QP) Checker web tool to help businesses to assess whether their recovered waste product is compliant with a QP, and therefore no longer classed as waste;
- designing and developing a series of field trials to establish a better understanding of the environmental performance of waste-derived products; and
- arranging and attending dissemination visits, events and activities in the EU, and exchanging best practice information for the benefit of our members
