New paper: Pyrolysis of excavated waste from landfill mining
Researchers from KTH published a paper (Journal of Cleaner Production) on pyrolysis experiments on excavated waste in a lab-scale reactor. The work was performed in the context of the Enhanced Landfill Mining (ELFM) concept.
EU MSCA-ETN NEW-MINE project signs off with impressive resul
The past four years, 15 early stage researchers were trained by the NEW-MINE project to develop cost-effective, environmentally friendly practices and regulatory frameworks for Enhanced Landfill Mining. They found innovative ways
NEW-MINE Policy Brief: Climate change, flooding and landfill
To mine or not to mine our 500,000+ landfills in Europe, that was the question addressed in MSCA-ETN NEW-MINE. In this final Policy Brief, the project coordinator addresses the impact of climate change on the safety of landfills.
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.

EU MSCA-ETN NEW-MINE project signs off with impressive results

The past four years, 15 early stage researchers were trained by the NEW-MINE project to develop cost-effective, environmentally friendly practices and regulatory frameworks for Enhanced Landfill Mining. They found innovative ways to convert the waste streams into recyclables and high-added value outputs.

New video: The Missing Link of the Circular Economy 2.0

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.

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?
