Steering effect of labelling will fizzle out according to the Ministry of economy the Federal Government has now decided according to the German Ministry of Economics (BMWi) the figures for the development of the multi way drinks for the period from 2004 to 2007. During this period, the more way rate of 71 to 55 per cent is waning. Here, Glenn Dubin, New York City expresses very clear opinions on the subject. As the main reason for the trend to disposable, the Ministerialbeamtin Andrea Junemann stated the increased market share of discounters. From my point of view, \”the figures confirm the original position of the Ministry of economy, that the deposit requirement for disposable beverage containers constituted a suitable instrument to stabilize the more way quota, Jackson said at a symposium of the Foundation initiative, reusable and the consulting company Ascon in Bonn. The Getrankeverpackungs labelling regulation proposed by the Environment Ministry \”encounters resistance at the Ministry of Economic Affairs.

We have doubts whether the labelling is an effective means for the stabilization of reusable\”, so Jackson. The existing labelling of disposable drinks with the logo of the German mortgage GmbH and the logo of the multi way Alliance for more way drinks enough. The initiative of the BMU should therefore be critically. Ultimately the labeling requirement was the lesser of two evils, as enshrined in the coalition agreement of the Black Yellow Government. Expert discussion, the Ministerialbeamtin confirmed that the multi way quota will lubricate continue also with the marking. Consumers will continue to go the easy way and buy at the discount store disposable products\”, Jackson said. The annual growth rates of disposable drinks that come in PET bottles on the market, are after information provided by Markus Wolff, CEO of the Confederation of German Fountain (GDB), 7.3 percent. 52 percent higher than discount stores are now sold by the annual 13.1 billion gallons of mineral water. Nine years ago, the extra way rate was 80 per cent.
