In this workinggroup the EC has asked several participants, like memberstates, reporting organisations, ministries, carproducers (ACEA) and EGARA to try to find a methodology that is agreed by all and that will provide figures about the member states’recycling quota.

The problem is that many members states use different ways of reporting and different definitions, making it impossible to compare any performances. It’s also believed that not all used methodologies are conform the European guidelines for reporting on ELV methodologies. Main point is if Fixed Assumptions for metal fractions and material fractions and reuse are the solution or not. There’s many pros and cons for fixed assumptions and the outcome is not certain. EGARA will keep you informed.
