EU to enforce new rules on organic fertilizers

Brussels, Jul 16 (Prensa Latina) The European Union (EU) has enacted a new regulation to increase the marketing of organic fertilizers based on waste, the executive arm of this bloc announced.

According to a statement from the European Commission (EC), starting today, Saturday, the regulation, which is considered a step towards sustainable agriculture, one of the goals of the Green Deal, is coming into force.

The new law, the EC added, will open the single market to organic waste-based fertilizers and will establish limit values for toxic pollutants in these products in order to reduce their environmental impact.

Furthermore, it will limit the risk to human health and reduce Europe’s dependence on imported fertilizers.

Companies will have a three-year transition period to adapt their manufacturing processes and comply with legislation, the document said.

However, while the EU establishes new regulations related to the use of fertilizers to contribute to the Green Deal, in the face of the energy crisis, it is assessing the increase in the use of coal, considered a high air pollutant.
