Crates for food (under development)

Littering

Thanks for starting a PCR on this.
I hope that the end of life scenario will look into the aspects of food packaging ending up in nature.
It is a well known problem but not well addressed in LCA.
Maybe a reason for that is that the route for garbage is always assumed to be incineration, recycling or landfill.
But somehow we still see a lot of littering. So I think we should try to adress that.
LCIA methods are not in place for covering that either. We need to step up on this!

Are you interested in in making an effort to include this?

Dear Marcus.
Thank you for your valuable comment.
The PCR will be modified, considering at §4.3.3 (downstream processes) also littering in the end of life scenarios.
