Small rise in EU-15 steel packaging recycling

Recycling of steel packaging in the EU-15 plus Norway and Switzerland reached 61% in 2003, according to trade association Apeal. The increase was much smaller than in 2001 or 2002, but Apeal forecast a return to faster growth and predicted an EU-15 recycling rate near 70% by 2008. Greece, Portugal, Finland and Spain achieved the biggest increases in recycling rate in 2003. Steel packaging recycling in the EU's ten new states is still in its infancy but "will take off in years to come", Apeal added. See press release.
