                                                          from fossil fuels, which corresponds
  to a 1.8% of the emissions of fossil fuels on the planet. This study - which will be pub-
  lished shortly - is the first of its kind and aims to draw up an assessment of carbon sav-
  ings through recycling of ferrous and non ferrous metals and paper.
