FEVE & FERVER joint position paper on recycled content
Brussels, October 2021
As the European Union is preparing the review of the Packaging & Packaging Waste Directive and is considering the introduction of recycled content targets for specific packaging formats, FEVE and FERVER outline their joint position on Recycled Content and their proposed way forward to increase the uptake of recycled glass. Technically, glass bottles can be produced with up to 100% recycled glass and be endlessly and easily recycled into new glass packaging applications without any degradation of its quality. Glass packaging manufacturers and recyclers are committed to make our Circular Economy work better by ensuring that resources used are kept productive in the EU economy for as long as possible.
