SUSTAINABLE ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Group Machiels has been pioneering in sustainable entrepreneurship for many years. The group’s build-up know-how and its internal drive have resulted in strategic investments in many innovative and sustainable businesses with waste-to-materials and waste-to-energy activities, both in Group Machiels’ home country, Belgium and abroad. The ‘Enhanced Landfill Mining’ concept and the ‘Closing the Circle’ project presented totally fits this strategy. The Closing the Circle project is an ambitious, innovative and by definition sustainable project. Through the collaboration with its strategic knowledge partners and research institutes, it holds the potential to be developed in a competence center for Enhanced Landfill Mining and Enhanced Waste Management and generate a major shift in waste management technologies as well as national and European waste management vision contributing in the transition of linear to circular economies. The Closing the Circle (CtC) project will apply the Enhanced Landfill Mining concept to the landfill of Remo in Houthalen-Helchteren (Belgium) where in the meantime more than 16 million ton of waste is stored. A first goal of the CtC project is to implement a Plasma Demonstration Installation demonstrating the highly innovative key concepts and technologies, allowing to create a competence and demonstration center for Enhanced Landfill Mining.
