The summer school aims at offering an integral approach for the assessment of landfill mining projects. The interdisciplinary training programme aims at going beyond technical assessment, offering an approach to determine the value of landfill mining from an economic, environmental, social and policy perspective and to access up-scaling, industrial implementation and commercialization of projects. Two landfill types will be studied, being municipal solid waste landfills (NEW-MINE) & industrial mono-landfills, containing e.g. mine tailings, metallurgical sludges, ferrous and non-ferrous slags and bottom ashes (SOCRATES). The Summer School is open to students & researchers of academia and industry.
