Boulder, Colorado -- R2 Solutions has released a new informational document on the relationship between R2:2013 and international agreements governing hazardous waste trade.

Boulder, Colorado -- The R2 Solutions Board of Directors voted unanimously to clarify that R2:2013 prohibits the use of CRT glass that no longer is considered a Focus Material (FM) as Alternative Daily Cover at solid waste landfills.

 "This formal clarification by the Board is a win for the environment," states Clare Lindsay, a member of the R2 Solutions Board and formerly of U.S. EPA's Office of Solid Waste, "the CRT crisis must be dealt with effectively and expeditiously, but not through the use of less-than-optimal environmental solutions."


Today's vote by the Board of Directors is in line with the recommendation of the multi-stakeholder R2 Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) which recently deliberated the issue.
