A Possible EU Wide Charge on Cadmium in Phosphate Fertilisers: Economic and Environmental Implications

0
Abstract

This report examines the economic and environmental effect of introducing an EU wide charge on the cadmium content of phosphate fertilisers. The objective of such a charge would be to reduce cadmium contamination of soils in a cost effective way. The main conclusions are that the economic impact of such a charge on EU agriculture and industry will be small. However, it may lead to a major shift in the supply of raw phosphate to the EU, creating potential problems for some developing countries.
