EBA launches a project on the recycling of used packaging from PPPs

19/ 12/ 2020
  Today in Ukraine, unfortunately, the packaging waste of plant protection products is mostly discarded or reused for counterfeiting. These factors significantly increase the risk of environmental pollution and adversely affect human health. In all civilized European countries, this kind of packaging waste is subject to disposal. To solve this issue, the European Business Association announces the launch of the project Responsible management of pesticide packaging waste. Thus, this project will unite world producers to introduce a European recycling mechanism in Ukraine. This concerns the implementation of Directive 2008/98/EC of 19 November 2008 on waste. The project will involve ADAMA UKRAINE LLC, BAYER LLC, BASF LLC, NUFARM UKRAINE LLC, SUMMIT-AGRO UKRAINE LLC, SYNGENTA LLC, FMC UKRAINE LLC, UPL UKRAINE LLC. Its implementation will increase the volume of collection and recycling of PPPs’ packaging, analyze logistics routes to optimize the collection process, establish communication between all entities, as well as increase the efficiency of such packaging waste management. The project also plans to launch an online platform that will establish and optimize communication processes between market participants and monitor the life cycle of containers from the time of use of the pesticide, then when containers are categorized as waste, and until their recycling or disposal. With the help of the website, the end-users (agricultural holdings, farms, etc.) will be able to form an online application for the collection of packaging from PPPs, while the licensee (a company that has a valid license and capacity for hazardous waste operations) will process such an application and perform appropriate actions for the collection, transportation, storage, processing, and disposal of used packaging from PPPs. As a result of the Project, the socially responsible participating companies will be able to ensure the proper managing of used PPPs’ packaging under European standards, and the state should receive clear and transparent rules for the functioning of the packaging waste management market, which can later form the basis of fundamentally new legislation. Further announcements of the Project’s procurement procedures will soon be published on the EBA website.   FOR REFERENCE: Aequo Law Firm, the Legal Adviser of the Project, provided its support in obtaining the permission of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine for concerted actions, as well as support from the Ministry of Environmental Protection and Natural Resources of Ukraine, the Ministry for Development of Economy, Trade, and Agriculture of Ukraine, the State Service of Ukraine on Food Safety and Consumer Protection.
