New paper recycling project in Central Europe

Submitted by: Vince Collins 26/04/2013

EcoPaperLoop launched to improve paper sustainability in Central Europe.

In Central Europe regions paper for recycling is a major resource. However, the paper recycling rates are still highly inhomogeneous. Since paper for recycling is not only recycled in the country where it is produced, some essential features such as eco-design and ecocollection concepts must be developed at transnational level to increase the sustainability of the paper loop. The new project aims at improving the quality of paper for recycling. The EcoPaperLoop project will run until end of 2014. It is co-funded by the European Union/European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the local project partners.
