SESSION D03 / 11 October 2021 / 17:00 - 18:30

Workshop: RAWFILL - Material recovery by landfill mining

Chair / Presidente: Claudia Neculau, Laura Lamair (BE)


The RAWFILL project (Acronym for “Supporting a new circular economy for RAW materials recovered from landFILLs”) aims at facilitating the implementation and the development of the landfill mining project in Europe. During this session, the project partners will present some major outcomes of the RAWFILL project: the advantages of the innovative landfill content characterization methodology (HADESS) combining geophysical imaging and targeted waste sampling; the two-step Decision Support Tool (DST) to allow smart enhanced landfill mining (ELFM) project planning, prioritization and interim use; the landfill miner guide, a guide to facilitate the launching of landfill mining project. Moreover, the lessons learned during the 4-year project will be presented and discussed. Introductory lectures:
