EC aangeklaagd voor toestaan DEHP in gerecycled kunststof

31 maart 2017

ClientEarth, filed a lawsuit against the European Commission on an environmental matter. According to ClientEarth, the Commission made a mistake in deciding that several plastic recycling companies could continue to use diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) in some of the products they make.
ClientEarth called DEHP a "blacklisted chemical," noting it is endocrine disruptive, and the group noted that in 2015 EU Members of Parliament "voted overwhelmingly against authorising the use of DEHP." Nonetheless, the European Commission permitted the three companies to continue using DEHP until at least 2019 when a review of the matter will be held (Recycling Laws International, 28 februari 2017).
