National packaging recycling schemes in Finland, Iceland and Ukraine have joined Pro Europe, a network representing the interests of the industry in Europe. This brings membership to 29 countries, including 22 EU member states. Italian scheme Conai will also join in 2007, ENDS has learned. From next year Denmark and the Netherlands will be the only two member states to remain outside the network. Pro Europe managing director Joachim Quoden says the Netherlands may soon join the scheme as it has recently passed a law introducing producer responsibility for packaging.
