The European Recovered Paper Council (ERPC) is a European industry self-initiative monitoring the progress towards meeting the paper recycling targets set by the European Declaration on Paper Recycling. The Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) is one of its signatories. Its membership primarily composed of paper manufacturers, the ERPC focuses on the recycling of paper and paper fibres, which they would like to keep exempt from legal take-back obligations.
Looking critically on all non-paper fibres because they have the potential to disturb or interfere with the recycling process, the ERPC initiates recycling studies in order to identify “disturbing” substances and to define recycle-friendly processes. These studies, the results, and the conclusions made may deeply impact the use of adhesive tapes in the paper and cardboard industry. It is therefore important that the adhesive tape industry participates in ERPC discussions. As a European organisation, Afera is a member of the ERPC and attends its meetings held in Brussels once or twice a year in order to represent the interests of the adhesive tape industry, specifically companies which produce raw materials or adhesive tapes going into paper that will be recycled.
