Workshop on EU landfill mining – SMART GROUND

07/02/2018-8:30 AM-2:30 PM

Joint workshop on EU landfill mining

The joint workshop on EU landfill mining will give an overview on initiatives and progress made to date on the three EU funded projects: SMART GROUND, RAWFILL and COCOON

During the joint workshop will be explained the different tools to assess the suitability and feasibility of landfill mining and the recovery methods explored within the projects.

Discussion will also explore how to minimise environmental impacts, including remaining issues over environmental contamination, emissions and noise in local communities; as well as the future of regulatory frameworks to address these concerns. And last but not least, this will be the best occasion to launch the SMART GROUND Databank.
