FEADpromotes environmentally sound Waste Management in close co-operation with the EU institutions, networking with horizontal and sectoral industry, trade organisations and coalitions.

Members l’Environnement

FEAD represents l’Environnement

  • More than 200 incinerators

  • More than 2 800 landfills

  • More than 1 000 composting sites

  • More than 1 350 recycling plants

  • 60 % share of Municipal Solid Waste in Europe

  • 80 % of Industrial and Commercial Waste

  • (incl. hazardous waste)

FEAD Mission l’Environnement

  • Gather expertise and up-to-date information

  • Compare experiences

  • Advise decision-makers of the overall situation in EU

  • Lessons learnt in practice should lead us to better, more efficient legislation and therefore superior environmental and economic performance

KEY ISSUES l’Environnement

  • Waste Hierarchy

  • By-products

  • Recovery and Energy-from-Waste

  • Self-Sufficiency and Proximity Principles

  • Other issues

Waste Hierarchy l’Environnement

EP First Reading:

  • 5-step hierarchy as general rule

  • LCA and cost-benefit analysis for specific waste stream to deviate from hierarchy

    CL current position (28 February 2007):

  • 5-step hierarchy as “guiding” principle

  • Departing where indicated by LCT

  • MS to take into account gen. ENV protection principles, technical & economic viability

    FEAD position:

  • An integrated waste management system will provide the most sustainable resource management

  • FEAD supports a 5-step hierarchy only if flexibility is granted

  • FEAD welcomes the life-cycle thinking

  • FEAD would welcome guidelines to secure an harmonized European approach/Life-cycle tools ought to be easily usable in waste policy

By-products l’Environnement

EP First Reading:

  • Recital calling for Commission’s guidelines was adopted

  • Additional article calling for a Commission legislative proposal on by-products

    CL current position (28 February 2007):

  • Member States decision on a case by case basis if certain conditions are met

    FEAD position:

  • FEAD members are opposed to the creation of a “third legal” category

  • Any definition on by-products requires a proper assessment of any potential negative impacts on the environment

  • Any attempt to “freeze” the legal certainty to the present jurisprudence will fail

  • Developing guidelines is the best way to proceed

Recovery and Energy-from-Waste l’Environnement

EP First Reading:

  • Definition of recovery includes again reference to interim operations

  • MEPs recognised that energy-from-waste should be classified as Recovery (def energy recovery adopted)

  • But no formula was adopted

    CL current position (28 February 2007):

  • Definition of recovery is close to initial Commission’s proposal (ref. Annex II as non-exhaustive list)

  • R1 formula as proposed by the Commission + reference to BAT for Waste Incineration

    FEAD position:

  • FEAD welcomes that municipal waste incinerators may be considered as recovery operations

  • The energy efficiency criterion should be accessible under the conditions prevailing in all EU Member States.

  • The threshold should be based on the energy efficiency performances that are achievable when using the Best Available Techniques

Self-Sufficiency and Proximity Principles l’Environnement

EP First Reading:

  • Amendments extending the application of the self-sufficiency principle to waste destined for Recovery were rejected

    CL current position (28 February 2007):

  • Integrated network of disposal installations and installations for recovery of MSW collected from private household

    FEAD position:

  • FEAD is opposed to the extension of the self-sufficiency principle to waste for Recovery

  • Open markets in the waste management industry is a driver for high EU environmental standards

Other FEAD statements linked to the rev of WFD l’Environnement

  • FEAD opposes any modification to the definition of waste

  • FEAD understands the need for a proposal to clarify the “end-of-waste” status in exceptional cases

  • Regulation provides control and guarantees a high level of environmental and health protection therefore the Commission initiatives should not reduce the safeguards applied to the management of waste

  • FEAD calls to maintain proven principles and instruments such as the ‘polluter pays’ principle’ or the producer’s responsibility

  • FEAD is not in favour of integrating the Hazardous Waste Directive into the Waste Framework Directive

  • Modernisation and simplification of legislations should not lead to deregulation

  • END-OF-WASTE PROJECT l’Environnement

  • carried out by the Joint Research Centre – IPTS (Institute for Prospective Technological Studies)

  • aim is to develop a general methodology for determining end-of-waste criteria

  • case studies on:

  •  Aggregates

  •  Compost

  •  Scrap metal
