Update, July 2012: study on EoW criteria for biodegradable waste
 
The European Commission Joint Research Centre's Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (JRC-IPTS) is nearing the end of its technical study on end-of-waste criteria for biodegradable waste subject to biological treatment (aerobic composting and anaerobic digestion). This study will provide recommendations for the European Commission to consider when drafting its proposals for EoW criteria that will later be discussed and voted on in the European Parliament.
 
On 25th July, 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.
 
"As mentioned in our last e-mail we had decided to run additional analyses  [on samples of different kinds of biologically treated biodegradable wastes] to support the establishment of end-of-waste criteria. The results of these analyses are now being finalized and will be discussed internally to prepare the document [finalise JRC-ITPS’s technical study report]. Therefore, we hope to provide you with an updated document in the coming weeks.  Most likely, this document will be followed by a written consultation on a restricted number of open items.

"In any case, we will communicate further progress by 10 August at the latest. Please refrain from contacting us beforehand with requests for intermediate updates on the working document or analytical results. Therefore, we hope to provide you with an updated document by the end of July. Most likely, this document will be followed by a written consultation on a restricted number of open items.
 
"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."
 
As a member of the Technical Working Group, AfOR plans to respond to the likely JRC written consultation on whatever specific challenges remain to be resolved.
