Video report on Interreg RAWFILL’s mid-term event in Cuves (FR)

Recently the mid-term event of the Interreg RAWFILL project took place in Cuves (France). More than 40 participants discussed the first results on the enhanced landfill inventory structure and the decision support tool, and the use of geophysical methods to select the most profitable landfill mining projects.

New video released on reprocessing of tailings (ETN SULTAN)

The ETN SULTAN team has just released its official (animated) video on the reprocessing of tailings. SULTAN Researcher Jillian Helser explains how the SULTAN target is to transform mining waste (tailings) into valuable products.

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?
