Management of packaging waste in the EU-27, 2010-2020

The figure shows the development of packaging waste management in the EU-27 in the period 2010-2020, divided in three categories: recycling, energy recovery and other recovery, and other treatment (incl. landfill). The 'other' category is the difference between generated packaging waste and recovery. No further information is available about the treatment of non-recovered packaging waste.

Management of municipal waste in the EU-27, 2010-2020

The figure shows the development of municipal waste management in the EU-27 in the period 2010-2020, divided in four categories: recycling (material recycling and composting/digestion), incineration (energy recovery and incineration without energy recovery), and landfill. The 'other' category is the difference between generated municipal waste and treated municipal waste. It covers for losses during treatment (e.g. water loss during mechanical-biological treatment) and storage.

Coverage of the population with high convenience collection systems in EU Member States by waste stream in municipal waste, and average share of each material in municipal waste

The left figure shows how many EU Member States have a high/medium/low share of their population covered by high convenience separate collection systems, for the following material types included in municipal waste: bio-waste, paper and cardboard, plastics, wood, glass, metals, textiles and Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). The right figure shows the share of each of these material types in the municipal waste.

Overview of taxes on the incineration of municipal waste used in EU Member States, 2023

On the x-axis the tax levels in EUR per tonne of waste incinerated are given, the dots in the graph represent the incineration tax for the specific Member State (MS). Some Member States use a minimum and maximum tax which is represented by two dots (lower and higher level) connected by a line. Further details are given the the Technical Note accompanying the briefing. EU average is calculated as a simple average of the tax level used by the MS, and for the MS using a minimum and a maximum, both the lower and uper level of the tax are taken into account, resulting in an average lower tax level and an average higher tax level.

Overview of landfill taxes on municipal waste used in EU Member States, 2023

On the x-axis the tax levels in EUR per tonne of waste lanfilled are given, the dots in the graph represent the landfill tax for the specific Member State (MS). Some Member States use a minimum and maximum tax which is represented by two dots (lower and higher level) connected by a line. Further details are given in the Technical Note accompanying the briefing. EU average is calculated as a simple average of the tax level used by the MS, and for the MS using a minimum and a maximum, both the lower and uper level of the tax are taken into account, resulting in an average lower tax level and an average higher tax level.

Observed annual mean temperature change from 1960 to 2019 (left panel) and projected change under different emissions scenarios (right panels) in Europe

Left panel: boxes outlined in black indicate areas with at least three stations, so are more likely to be representative; areas with significant long-term trends are indicated by black dots. Right panel: projected changes in near-surface air temperature by the period 2071-2100, compared with 1971-2000 for RCP4.5 (Representative Concentration Pathway) and 8.5 emissions scenarios; simulations are based on the multi-model ensemble average of simulations of the EURO-CORDEX initiative.
