A team of SIM² KU Leuven/SOLVOMET & ArcelorMittal researchers has developed an ammoniacal leaching process to valorise Zn-rich BOF sludges from the steel industry. The work was published in the Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
On April 1-5, 2019, the 6th Slag Valorisation Symposium took place. More than 200 persons experienced at first hand that slag valorisation has been transformed from an academic concept into an industrial success story.
On February 26, 2019, the Interreg Europe project COCOON hosted a workshop on “Landfill management: from landfill to useful resource” at the World Resources Forum in Antwerp (Belgium). All presentations are now available.
Within the EU H2020 SOCRATES project, SIM² KU Leuven developed a process to selectively recover lead and zinc from iron-rich jarosite residue of the zinc industry. The work is published in ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering.
Recently the use of lead is being called into question by some policy makers. To provide a firm metallurgical background on its crucial role in the Circular Economy, the EU ETN SOCRATES team has just published a new Policy Brief.
In the framework of the iconic World Resources Forum 2019 (Antwerp), the Interreg Europe COCOON project team is hosting the workshop “landfill management: from landfill to useful resource” on February 26, 2019.
How is Europe going to deal with the legacy of more than 500,000 landfills? More than 50 experts debated this question during the 2nd ELFM Seminar in the European Parliament (November 20, 2018), which was hosted by Belgian MEP Hilde Vautmans (ALDE Group). A detailed...
On 20-11-2018, the 2nd ELFM EP Seminar took place. A full house of experts participated in an interactive debate about developing a dynamic landfill management strategy for Europe. Peter Tom Jones provides a first analysis.
EURELCO and the EU Training Network for Resource Recovery Through Enhanced Landfill Mining (ETN NEW-MINE) call for papers on Enhanced Landfill Mining for a Thematic Issue in the IWWG Journal Detritus (Deadline: 11-6-2019).
In preparation of the 2nd ELFM Seminar in the European Parliament (20-11-2018), ETN NEW-MINE has published a new Policy Brief: “Why Enhanced Landfill Mining (ELFM) needs to be politically acknowledged to facilitate sustainable management of European landfills”.
The 6th EURELCO General Assembly meeting takes place on November 21, 2018 at the Flemish Public Waste Agency (OVAM, Belgium). The GA is organised the day after the 2nd ELFM Seminar in the EP in Brussels. Registration is now open.
