URBAN AND LANDFILL MINING

We are a multidisciplinary research group entitled Resources 2.0 – urban and landfill mining located at the division Environmental Technology and Management, Linköping University, Sweden. Our research involves close collaboration with industrial actors and aims at developing and evaluating strategies, concepts and measures for facilitating extraction of obsolete and abandoned agglomerates of natural resources situated in the built environment.

One such abandoned stock of natural resources that we often study is landfills. Through a combination of pilot projects, systems analysis and interviews we address critical technical, organisational, policy and market drivers, enablers and barriers for implementation. Our main quest is to better understand under which conditions and principles landfill mining can offer a viable activity for individual actors and for society at large.

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?
