Recycling policy in the European Union

Abstract : Recycling in the European Union (EU) has benefited from R&D efforts and strict environmental regulations of the EU's members. Thanks to the adoption of sustainable development policies by the EU's European Institutions, economic incentives are expected to further strengthen the recycling industry. Moreover, the historical accumulation of non-ferrous metals in Europe will likely enhance secondary metal production. Also contributing to EU recycling is mining in East European countries and the resulting industrial waste. The rate of growth of the recycling industry is expected to approach double digits for at least this decade.
