Round Table about the topic of a circular economy in the Neuss mill

08.03.2015 - Sustainability, Fairs, Company / Mills

The European member of parliament Karl-Heinz Florenz together with raw materials experts from associations in the paper industry (VDP, CEPI), visited our MMK Neuss mill in mid-March for a discussion about questions relating to paper recycling and the EU circular economy programme. 

The overall concept, namely awareness for social and ecological effects of production decisions, is becoming a more and more important topic for consumers in the decision process. Ensuring a closed and therefore sustainable production cycle is accordingly of decisive importance. 
In the scope of the event, topics regarding recycled paper preparation, recycled paper quality and the availability of recycled paper in Europe were discussed intensively. Florenz emphasised the importance of a common European recycling policy and acknowledged the great efforts and successes of the paper industry on the subject of recycling. The Neuss mill was able to show Florenz most impressively how a ‘closed cycle‘ can function balancing ecology an economy! 

Florenz has been a European Member of Parliament for over 25 years and a member of the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety in the EU parliament.
