The regulation on the use of organic and waste-based fertilisers was the subject of a tripartite agreement on 13 December. Its aim is to reduce the use of chemical fertilisers in Europe. EURACTIV France’s media partner the Journal de l’environnement reports.

This new legislation was proposed by the European Commission in March 2016 as part of the Circular Economy Package. In particular, it introduces limits for contaminants, such as 60 milligrams per kilogram for cadmium (this limit will be further reviewed in four years), for both phosphate and organic fertilisers.
