OSLO - Proposals to establish an extended producer responsibility (EPR) scheme for textiles in Norway could see companies charged a higher levy for products made with synthetic fibres such as polyester or nylon.

That is the most radical suggestion of a working group set up to consider how best to implement an EPR scheme in Norway which has just presented its 89-page report to Environment and Climate Minister Espen Barth Eide.

The proposal is in contrast to the European Commission's proposed EPR scheme for textiles which would see companies charged for the products they put on the market by weight - a system which the Norwegian group argues favours synthetic materials because they are lighter than so-called natural fibres.
