EU paper industry sets up recovery website
European paper industry associations have grouped together under the banner of the European recovered paper council (ERPC) to create a website dedicated to spreading information on paper recovery and recycling. The site is specifically designed to report on the industry's efforts to raise the rate of paper recycling in Europe to 56% by 2005 in line with a commitment made in 2000. Latest recycling figures for 2001 showed it to be broadly on track to meet this goal (EED 24/09/02). See ERPC.
