On the 2nd of December, the European Commission will present the new Circular Economy Package. Against this background of imminent EU legislative measures, the 7th Congress of the Spanish Recovered Paper Association (REPACAR) was held very recently in Madrid, under the banner ‘At the Forefront of the Circular Economy’. FuturENVIRO attended the event as media collaborator. The slogan for the event reflects the fact that this sector has become a benchmark in terms of achieving the waste recovery targets set by the EU for 2020 and will play a key role in enabling the implementation of the new economic model.
