CONAI approved a further decrease of the environmental contribution (or CAC) for packaging, which will come into effect on 1 January 2023.
In addition, there is a new classification of packaging from five to nine bands with different contribution values.
La fascia A1 sarà divisa in due: A1.1 e A1.2. The latter remains unchanged, while A1.1 drops to EUR 20/ton.
Band A2 also remains unchanged, remaining at €150/ton.
Band B1 is split into B1.1 and B1.2 with the aim of separating PET articles from HDPE articles: the fee remains for both at 20 euros/ton.
Band B2 splits into three: B2.1 for rigid polypropylene containers, going from 410 to 350 euro/ton. In fascia B2.2 rientrano gli articoli riciclabili a base poliolefinica e il CAC non varia.
In band B2.3, packaging with experimental and consolidating recycling chains will be included from the current 560 euros/tonne to 555 euros/ton.
Band C will be reduced with no change to the fee of EUR 560/ton.
From 1 July 2023 there will be increases for three bands: A1.2 will rise from 60 to 90 euro/ton, band A2 from 150 to 220 euro/ton and band B2.2 from 410 to 477 euro/ton.
