Coripet, the increase in the Recycling Contribution has been approved

In this period Coripet was able to work on making the system more efficient and implementing the network of eco-compactors (over 1,000 on a national scale) which guarantees Coripet members rPet from a closed supply chain and therefore suitable for direct food contact.

In the meeting of last October 24th, the Board of Directors of Coripet approved the adaptation of the Crc, the amount that the consortium producers and converters pay as a contribution to start recycling post-consumer PET bottles. “Lowering or decreasing an environmental contribution is a choice that is part of the very life of an EPR consortium – he states Corrado Dentis, President Coripet – The increase in the Crc is necessary to balance the inevitable chain deficit in the provision of the end-of-life packaging management service”.

As is known – explains Coripet in a note – the costs for the end-of-life management service of packaging placed on the market belong to these categories which are called upon to fulfill the EPR (Extended Producer Responsibility) obligations. “The value for 2024 is revised upwards for the first time after a long period of declines, made possible thanks to the brilliant but unusual performance of the Pet auctions – observes Coripet – Now that this value has returned to usual levels, it has become readjustment of the tariff is necessary. The current reference scenario has required an adjustment of the Crc, which thus rises, starting from next January 1, 2024, from 16 euros to 183 euros per ton, a number in line with the historical values ​​of the environmental contribution before the appearance of Coripet in the supply chain”.

In this period Coripet was able to work on making the system more efficient and implementing the network of eco-compactors (over 1,000 on a national scale) which guarantees Coripet members rPet from a closed supply chain and therefore suitable for direct food contact. Less than two years from the European objectives, the challenge of the coming months will be to make the selective and traditional collection system increasingly more efficient, which can, with economies of scale and technological innovations, improve both the yield in the selection plants and the awareness of citizens without whom the collection targets of 77% of PET bottles released for consumption in the area will not be achievable.
