Summary : In the framework of the necessary transition towards a circular economy, waste recycling, and the reuse of the raw materials contained in this waste, is fundamental.
First and foremost, it is essential for the sustainability of our society: growing pressure on natural resources is seriously threatening the capacity of our planet to sustain our living standards. But it is also an economic and industrial asset for France and Europe. Our continent relies mostly on imports for the supply of raw materials and fossil fuels. In this context, recycling is an opportunity to increase our self-sufficiency, maintain value, and eventually maintain and grow economic activity and jobs.
Metals, paper, glass, plastics, wood, and aggregates: how much is produced in France? How much is imported and exported? How much waste is generated ? And, at the end of the loop, how much is recovered and enters back into production? In brief, how 'circular' is the French industry when it comes to material flows?
The National Recycling Report (Bilan National du Recyclage - BNR) 2005 - 2014 is a compilation of data on recycling in France, over a 10 year period. It summarises the evolutions observed for different material categories: ferrous metals, non-ferrous metals, paper and cardboard, glass, plastics, wood and aggregates for construction. It also assesses the contribution of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) to recycling in France. Finally, it quantifies the environmental benefits of recycling.
