Workshop: Landfill Mining - Myth and reality I

SESSION F5 / / 15:30 - 17:10
Workshop: Landfill Mining - Myth and reality I
Chair / Presidente: C. Neculau, M. Popova (BE)

During the two workshop sessions, the partners of both EU-funded projects (RAWFILL and SMART GROUND) will emphasize the necessity of broad data collection in order to redesign the traditional risk-based landfill management into a dynamic resource supplying system. The inventory of landfills will be explained in relation to a comprehensive Conceptual Site Model taking into account cross-cutting policies such as sustainable development goals, climate change and land management as well as resource recovery through landfill mining opportunities.
