The proposal also applies to many other activities
But as they are wrote down in economic organizations, is discourse misleading to the proponents, as the solution does not only refer to the field of waste co-incineration.
“In fact, the draft law also regulates other activities, namely in the field monitoring emissions and reporting. There are changes in a large part in contrary to established rules in to the EU and represent a departure from the established practice, which Slovenian companies set in unequal position,” they wrote in joint press release.

Slovenian companies should not be pushed in an unequal position, as a result of which it would lose competitiveness,” they also wrote down in organizations.
