Save as PDF

European Parliament’s Rapporteur on the European Commission’s consultation on biowaste, Jose Manuel Fernandes, has urged the Commission to adopt a new biowaste law, rather than continue to use existing legislation. Mr Fernandes wants the new legislation to clearly define what constitutes biowaste and introduce criteria for high-quality compost. The Portuguese MEP will present his response to the consultation in the Parliament's Environment Committee at the end of April.
