Comment on: EU urged to reject plastic exports change
FEAD's comments are amusing. The EU were leaders in promoting the amendments and are not about to reverse their own initiative. Further FEAD has a serious misconception that export for recycling is export for environmentally sound recycling. The plastics recycling myth has come home to roost -- its been a fraud all along. Only 9% of plastics have ever been exported and that 9% includes very dirty, polluting recycling abroad. And...only 1% of plastics have been recycled more than once. It is fraud.
