11-13/12/2018, EU Ecolabel review webinars with European Commission
Intergraf participated in the webinars organised by the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission on the revision of the EU Ecolabel for printed products. One of the outcomes of the webinars is the merge of both the printed paper Ecolabel and converted paper Ecolabel. Whereas it is not expected that the revision process will lead to softer criteria – quite the contrary – we see the opportunity with this revision process to extend the coverage of licenced products. Companies which are making the effort to comply with the criteria for one customer should be able to have more products covered under the same licence.
10-14/12/2018, STS BREF review final meetings, Seville
Intergraf participated in the final meetings on the review of the STS BREF. All week was dedicated to finalise the Best Available Techniques for the sector and the related emission limit values. The outcome needs to be further assessed but it is generally positive compared to set goals. The impact of the newly set limit values for energy consumption, NOx and CO is still to be assessed.
