  • Adhesives in the regulation of end-of-life vehicles.pdf

    Uploaded December 04, 2023

    In July 2023, the EC published a proposal for a regulation on circularity requirements for vehicle design and end-of-life vehicles (‘ELV regulation proposal’, document COM(2023)451).

    FEICA argues that: 
    • the explicit and generalised mention of adhesives as an impediment to the dismantling and recycling in the ELV regulation proposal is inaccurate, as adhesives can allow for and even enable successful dismantling and recycling.

    • the current wording constitutes an uneven playing field as other materials and bonding technologies which may prevent dismantling and/or recycling are not mentioned.

    • the mention of specific materials or technologies which are to be considered in the circular design strategies and in fee modulation for vehicles should be provided, if at all, in secondary legislation or guidance only.

    • any mention of specific materials or bonding technologies should be sufficiently specific and reflective of the existing practices, successes and limitations of end-of-life vehicle dismantling and recycling.

  • FEICA co-signs Silicones Europe letter regarding intended POP nomination of D4, D5, D6.pdf

    Uploaded December 03, 2023

    Industry shares with the European Commission its reservations regarding the intention to nominate D4, D5 and D6 as persistent organic pollutants (POPs) under the Stockholm Convention

    The nomination of D4, D5 and D6 as POPs put at risk their intermediate use to produce silicone polymers, as well as many applications of silicone polymers. Please also see Annex A and Annex B (POP nomination of D4, D5, D6).
