    Goals / Remit

    Eurits represents more than 90% of the EU's specialist hazardous waste incineration sector, and exists to ensure the safe, legal and environmentally sound incineration of hazardous waste. The organisation was established in 1994. The 22 members operate 40 plants in 13 countries with a total workforce of more than 4,500. Dealing with special wastes involves treatment of hazardous waste as well as hazardous components present in other wastes. Safe decontamination, efficient energy use and the recovery of waste by supporting the aims of a society committed to recycling are the challenges facing the present day management of special waste. Implemented by specially-trained staff in purpose-built facilities, the incineration of hazardous waste is far more than just thermal treatment. Eurits provides its members with a Europe-wide platform on which they can exchange experience, present their views, raising awareness of Hazardous Waste Incineration (HWI) and the need for it.

    Main EU files targeted

    The European Green Deal including:
    The Circular Economy Action Plan (in particular waste legislation such as the Waste Shipment Regulation and the Waste Framework Directive).
    The Zero-Pollution Ambition: the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability, POPs regulation, CLP regulation, REACH, Industrial Emissions Directive and E-PRTR.
    Climate Legislation: the Effort Sharing Regulation, EU Emissions Trading Scheme, Fluorinated greenhouse gases regulation, Industrial Carbon Management Strategy/Carbon removals
    Energy Legislation: Energy Taxation Directive, Energy Efficiency Directive, Renewable Energy Directive.
    Other initiatives: Environmental Action Programme, EU taxonomy for sustainable activities and to a large extend all waste related dossiers.

  • Meetings


    2 meetings found. Download meetings

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
