Public Consultation – Evaluation of the Sewage Sludge Directive 86/278/EEC

Summary: EU rules (Directive 86/278) aim to ensure that the use of sewage sludge in farming does not harm the environment, animals and humans. Adopted 30 years ago, the Directive no longer matches current needs and expectations, such as properly regulating pollutants found in sludge (‘emerging contaminants’ like pharmaceuticals and microplastics). This initiative will evaluate how effective the Directive has been and analyse the risks and opportunities related to sewage sludge management in farming.
