PPWR: out of time the questionable and not conclusive results of LCA study by JRC, comparing single-use and re-usable packaging in HORECA sector

Comparta el artículo

On 20 February the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) published the final report of a controversial study assessing the life cycle impact of reusable versus single-use packaging in the Horeca sector.

The release comes out of time, less than two weeks until the final PPWR political trialogue scheduled for 4 March, where reuse targets and bans on single-use packaging will undoubtedly be the hot topics of inter-institutional negotiations.

What we want to highlight is not so much the questionable results of this study, but more the premises and the setting of the study itself, which necessarily leads to partial results.

We will expose the critical points of this study one by one and explain why it cannot be considered representative and comprehensive for the subject matter.
