European Union: use of animal by-products as a fuel in combustion plants

The Council decided not to oppose the adoption of a Commission's regulation amending regulation 142/2011 as regards the use of animal by-products and derived products as a fuel in combustion plants.

Wednesday 26 March 2014 (3 years 10 months 25 days ago)

The Council of Agriculture Ministers decided not to oppose the adoption of a Commission's regulation amending regulation 142/2011 as regards the use of animal by-products and derived products as a fuel in combustion plants (6995/14).

Regulation 1069/2009 lays down public and animal health rules for animal by-products and derived products, in order to prevent and minimise risks to public and animal health arising from those products. Regulation 142/20111 lays down implementing rules for regulation 1069/2009, including rules on the use and disposal of manure.

Provisions concerning the use of poultry manure as fuel for combustion on farms should be updated to harmonise requirements addressing the control of risks for human and animal health and the environment.

This Commission regulation is subject to the so called regulatory procedure with scrutiny. This means that now that the Council has given its consent, the Commission may adopt the regulation, unless the European Parliament objects.
