More than 60 attendees at the RAWFILL kick-off event

On June 7, 2017 the official kick-off of the RAWFILL project took place in Li├Ęge, Belgium. During the kick-off event the partners presented the project concept to more than 60 attendees. The North-West Europe region has 100.000 landfills. Most of these landfills lack state-of-the-art environmental protection systems, leading to local pollution, land-use restrictions and global impacts. This problem can be transformed into an opportunity as large volumes of resources such as materials and energy can be recovered through Landfill Mining. This way Landfill Mining can be widely implemented in the North-West Europe region. The main challenge for this is the profitability risk due to the lack of reliable data on the recovery potential of landfills: quantity, quality and value of materials. RAWFILL, that is approved on 14th - 15th March under the program Interreg NWE, will tackle this challenge by providing an enhanced framework for private/regional/national/transregional landfill inventories, an innovative approach to complete any set of missing mandatory economic data and a decision support tool.
