In June 2009, the European Commission adopted a Communication on the "Internet of Things – An Action Plan for Europe” which laid down 14 lines of action to ensure Europe plays a leading role in influencing the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) works and is able to enjoy the associated benefits in terms of economic growth and individual well-being. Action Line 12 refers to waste management: "RFID in recycling lines".
