The RAWFILL partners and the Cranfield University (SMART GROUND partner) are organizing a two-sessions workshop entitled “Landfill mining – Myth or reality” at the 17th INTERNATIONAL WASTE MANAGEMENT AND LANDFILL SYMPOSIUM at Sardinia, Italy (Session F5/15:30-17:10 & Session F6/18:00-19:40 - 01/10/2019).
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. The presentations will be followed by an interactive session with participants about RAWFILL Decision Support Tool - phase II.
