Goal called into question

Dipl.-Ing.(TU) Werner P. Bauer

First of all, I recall the so-called Prognos study from 2022, which stated that "by successfully applying current waste legislation (projection 1), the EU would significantly improve the CO2 saving potential of 150 Mt CO2eq. And with a more ambitious performances (projection 2), the CO2 net emission avoidance would reach -283 Mt CO2eq, which would result in savings of 296 Mt CO2eq."
Against this background, it is highly regrettable that the targets were not met in one respect or another. With regard to CO2 reduction, it is regrettable that the targets for the landfill directive in particular were not achieved in some countries. We do not want to single out anyone and we refer to the original report from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions.
