Business almost as usual Christian Hartmann, GEIR President


These past weeks have seen our habits disrupted, both on a personal and professional basis. While not always easy, some seem to have adjusted particularly well to the new working environment. It notably appears to be the case of the European Commission departments dealing with waste oils. As the Commission’s science and knowledge service (the Joint Research Center – JRC, supporting EU policies with independent scientific evidence) recently published a call for tender to support their work on waste oils, we can safely ascertain that their schedule has not been impacted – and this is excellent news!


Tasked with gathering “detailed technical and socio-economic data with regard to waste oil treatment options, including regeneration and energy recovery”, the selected consultants will hand over their final report before the end of this year. In other


terms, the European Commission is sticking to its pre-pandemic timeline to assess the feasibility of setting waste oils targets. This is an important source of relief for the EU re-refining sector, which has been waiting for such initiative for years.


Despite the need to urgently come up with measures to ensure economic recovery, the most prominent members of the European Commission reiterated on numerous occasions their commitment to the Green Deal. This constant support to the new EU growth strategy which places circular economy initiatives at its core is, in these troubled times, a silver lining.
