Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy obtains Impact Factor of 2
In March 2015 the Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy (JSM) launched its first issue. Now, just more than 5 years, JSM obtained its first Impact Factor. With a score of 2,109, the journal ranks second among TMS journals for 2019.
New video: The Missing Link of the Circular Economy 2.0
“The Missing Link of the Circular Economy 2.0” video shows why the waste of the past cannot be consigned to oblivion. A comprehensive Circular Economy vision should, therefore, find answers for Europe’s 500,000+ landfills.
The green transition challenged by the metal supply chain
How feasible is the transition to a climate-neutral economy (European Green Deal) in terms of the availability of the required (critical) metals? During the March 12 Seminar in Brussels an expert panel tried to provide answers.
Review on pyrometallurgical treatment of various steelmaking
Steelmaking processes generate diverse by-products. The Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy published a review paper on pyrometallurgical valorisation techniques. However, BOF sludge, as targeted in SAMEX, remains a huge challenge.

New video: The Dark Side of the Circular Economy

New video: The Dark Side of the Circular Economy

“The Dark Side of the Circular Economy” is the title of the ELFM V Symposium Aftermovie (5-2-2020). Referring to the EC’s pending Circular Economy Action Plan the video highlights one major blind spot in this plan. How will we deal with the waste of the past?

First ever ELFM Seminar in the European Parliament

The seminar, which was organised by two Flemish MEPs (Vautmans & Demesmaeker) and EURELCO, featured speakers four DGs of the Eureopean Commission (ENV, ENERGY, GROW and RTD) along with leading actors representing industry, academia and pulbic bodies. The seminar was attended by almost 100 people who actively debated the landfill (mining) situation in Europe. It was agreed that the EU-28 urgently requires thorough inventories of its landfills and needs to develop a clear vision with respect to the management and mining of its landfills.

Questionnaire on landfills, landfill management and LFM in the EU

EURELCO aims to further develop the knowledge on landfills in Europe and wants to improve the current infographic. The aim of this questionnaire is to collect EU-wide information about landfills, landfill management and LFM activities and policy issues. This in order to better understand potential drivers, barriers and enablers for LFM implementation and how such challenges could vary among regions.

Please contact the leaders of ELFM mapping and system conditions for more info.

Welcome to EURELCO

EURELCO is an open, quadruple helix network that supports the required technological, legal, social, economic, environmental and organisational innovation with respect to the development and implementation of a Dynamic Landfill Management (DLM) framework. The DLM framework includes resource recovery-driven Enhanced Landfill Mining (ELFM) as one of its most advanced components, thereby supporting the transition to a resource efficient, circular, low-carbon economy. Are you a relevant actor working on DLM or ELFM?
