Sneak preview: NEW_InnoNet stakeholder analysis shows positive attitudes towards the circular economy.
Europe generates around three billion tonnes of waste each year – and it is expected that this amount will increase further. Approximately half of this waste is not reused or recycled, and aside from the environmental impacts associated with incinerating or landfilling this waste, a significant amount of potential secondary raw materials is lost. Innovative recycling technologies have been successfully developed, but market uptake is limited and varies drastically among member states and regions. Without market uptake of new technologies, the development of more innovations, and elimination of non-technological market hurdles, ambitions for a near-zero waste Europe will not be fulfilled.
