Project title

Implementation of EU Directive 94/62 on packaging and packaging waste in Slovenia

Project description

For Slovenia's Ministry of Environment and Physical Planning, STELLA developed a plan for implementing EU Directive 94/62 on packaging and packaging waste. STELLA assessed the quantities of packaging waste generated in Slovenia and the quantities of packaging waste currently recycled and recovered. STELLA then projected future packaging waste management practices in Slovenia and assessed Slovenia's legal and institutional backgrounds. Finally, STELLA reviewed the implementation of Directive 94/62 in four Member States: Austria, France, Ireland, and the United Kingdom. STELLA proposed institutional arrangements to achieve recycling and recovery targets specified in the Directive. In particular, STELLA proposed that the Ministry of Environment and Physical Planning be responsible for monitoring and coordination. STELLA also proposed that a non-profit organisation be in charge of collecting fees from packaging producers and providing municipalities with these fees to help them segregate packaging waste. STELLA was responsible for estimating the costs of implementation.
