On 26 April the municipality of Wiltz, which is considered as the "Municipal Hotspot of the Circular Economy in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg", organises the annual "Circular Economy Day" conference in order to promote the CE at national and regional level, by sharing its experiences and know-how established through multiple projects, on the one hand, and by activating and consolidating the network of stakeholders active in the circular field, on the other. The 2023 edition will focus on urban metabolism.
This report looks at whether, and to what extent, the EU recycling targets can be met through improved recyclability of packaging and increased separate collections of municipal waste.
It examines the role mixed waste sorting (MWS) could play in three EU countries with high recycling performance – Germany, Belgium, and Sweden.
The conclusion is that in addition to separate collection and improved recyclability of plastic packaging, a full roll-out of effective MWS is necessary to meet recycling targets consistently, and to ensure progress towards the EU’s wider carbon emissions reduction goals.
This conference brings together regional and national governments, mixed waste sorting operators, recyclers, experts, and technology providers from countries across Europe to share their expertise on the introduction of MWS as an additional tool for the recovery and re-circulation of Europe’s valuable resources.
The conference is a timely response to the current revision of the EU’s Waste Framework Directive and the Industrial Emissions Directive.
FEDARENE’s Vice-President for Circular Economy, John Carley is pleased to invite you to the webinar on Making the Circular Economy Work which aims to guide local and regional authorities as they devise their circular economy strategies.

This interactive workshop is open to cluster organisations, companies, research organisations, actors from the civil society, and other interested entities. Before and during the lab, the participants will team up and develop together their project idea and business case that support the green and digital transition.
The final conference of the Ecoval Sudoe project (Coordination strategies for sludge and organic waste management and valorization in the SUDOE region) will take place in Ourense on 9 March 2023, where the main results of the project, started in November 2020, will be presented.
On Day 2 of the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Annual Conference (28 February), a Networking Village will showcase a selection of good practices, initiatives and circular business models.

The ASEAN Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform (ASEAN CE Platform) is a regional facility helping Association of Southeast Asian Nations Member States achieve sustainable consumption and production by accelerating the transition to a circular economy.
The EU-ASEAN Strategic Partnership covers the circular economy, and the Platform is part of the EU-ASEAN Partnership on Circular Economy, endorsed by ASEAN Senior Officials on the Environment in 2018. The ASEAN CE Platform is hosted by the ASEAN Centre for Sustainable Development Studies and Dialogue at the College of Management, Mahidol University in Bangkok, Thailand.
The establishment of the Platform was inspired by the success of the EU Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform in providing access to CE good practices and strategies.
