Meeting with Mr. Tomasz Styś, waste management expert at Sobieski Institute

In February AmCham’s Manufacturing Committee joined forces with the Energy & Environment Committee to meet with Tomasz Styś, a waste management expert at the Sobieski Institute, who talked about the EU’s Circular Economy proposal and its impact on the Polish waste management system.

The Circular Economy package, presented by the European Commission in December 2015, brings a number of opportunities and challenges to the Polish waste market. Styś focused on methods of organizing packaging waste systems and key aspects related to selective collection of waste. He also talked about 2020 and 2030 targets for packaging waste systems and the current market potential of communal waste in Poland.
