From waste to Innovative and greener fertilisers
Innovative fertilisers produced from organic or recycled materials will have easier access to the EU single market, under draft rules put to the vote on Thursday. Existing EU rules on fertilisers cover mainly conventional fertilisers, typically extracted from mines or produced chemically, with high energy-consumption and CO2 production. Diverging national rules make it difficult for producers of organic fertilisers to sell and use them across the EU single market.
Brexit: MEPs concerned over UK offer on EU citizens’ rights

In a debate organised by the Constitutional Affairs Committee,  Parliament’s chief Brexit Coordinator Guy Verhofstadt (ALDE, BE) criticised the UK government for not ending the uncertainty created for EU citizens living in the UK since last year’s referendum.
