The European Commission has proposed a tax covering every tonne of non-recycled plastic produced in the EU, Daniel Calleja Crespo, its director general for environment, said on Thursday.  Speaking during a panel discussion at the IdentiPlast conference in London, Calleja Crespo said the proposed tax would be levied at country level rather than on an industry basis.
The proposal is for a cost of €0.80/kg of non-recycled plastic produced.  No time frame was given for when the tax would take effect. The measure has not yet been agreed by the EU member states and remains under negotiation.
