Update, June 2012: study on EoW criteria for biodegradable waste
On 25th June, the European Commission Joint Research Centre's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (JRC-IPTS) provided members of the Technical Working Group with a further update on the progress of their study on end-of-waste criteria for biodegradable waste subject to biological treatment.  AfOR is a member of the TWG and quotes JRC-ITPS's most recent communication below.
"We have finally received all the available analytical data from the sampling and analysis campaign, originating from the in-house measurements at JRC-IES and the analyses performed by external partners. On 6 June 2012, we had a Commission internal discussion on these data and subsequently we have decided to run additional analyses to support the establishment of end-of-waste criteria. The results of these analyses are expected in the coming weeks.
Therefore, we hope to provide you with an updated document by the end of July. Most likely, this document will befollowed by a written consultation on a restricted number of open items.
In any case, we will communicate the further progress by 25 July at the latest. Please refrain from contacting us beforehand with requests for intermediate updates on the working document or analytical results. For reasons of transparency, we will distribute all new information to the whole Technical Working Group at once and hence we will not be able to provide any preliminary new information to a restricted audience."
AfOR plans to respond to the likely JRC written consultation on whatever specific challenges remain to be resolved.
