FPS COST Action E48
The Limits of Paper Recycling

The main objective of the Action is to develop scenarios describing the future use of recovered paper within the European paper industry in order to provide a better background for focused research activities in the field as well as to facilitate investment decisions or future company strategies concerning raw material markets. The benefits of the action will be a sound base for targeted research, provision of necessary arguments in the discussion with governmental organizations, guidelines for the design of recycle-friendly paper products, guidelines for more effective, tailor-made collection strategies for used paper and a background for investment decisions.
