The book on Circular economy: the political and legislative ambition of the EU provides an overview of this critical evolution of EU politics and legislation.

In its first part, the new strategic orientations informing the EU policy on the circular economy - such as eco-design of products, eco-effectiveness of the production process, durability of products, development of eco-procurement, innovative consumption, waste prevention and creation of a secondary raw material market, as well as reduction of food waste and fight against sea plastic pollution - are examined.

In its second part, the new rules on the circular economy, particularly the EU legislation on waste management, with a special focus on reinforced prevention obligations, the ambitious numerical goals set up for recycling and the extended producer liability system, are tackled.
