EU: 75% stalen verpakkingen gerecycled in 2013

28 mei 2015

APEAL has confirmed 2013 as the best year ever for steel packaging recycling in Europe. An average European-wide recycling rate of 75% was achieved in 2013, 1% more than in the previous year. The rate equates to over 20 years of continuous improvement by the steel for packaging sector where recycling rates have risen more than threefold. APEAL will continue to concentrate their efforts in those countries where there is still potential for increased steel recycling.
The methodology and data sources used for the calculation of the European steel recycling rate have been reviewed independently by the energy and waste specialist consultancy Eunomia (Persbericht APEAL, 11 mei 2015).
