2018-10-12  The Kudjape municipal landfill was an unlined landfill situated on Saaremaa Island. The groundwater sampling network and gas monitoring wells provided some background data. In a closure project, a thick layer of cover material was required. As the landfill is situated on an island with thin soil cover, no cover material was available with acceptable financial or environmental cost. From this ...

Landfill mining may still be new, but it has a lot to ...

2020-07-24  The purpose of landfill mining Landfill mining operations extract and reprocess materials from older disposal sites. On the simplest level, the ultimate aim of the process is to “mine” landfills for recyclables or reusable materials which can then be refined or sold as is to the scrap markets.

Landfill mining: is this the next big thing in recycling ...

2021-03-11  Enhanced landfill mining is also relevant for municipal solid waste. In this case landfill mining separates waste into directly recyclable materials (Limestone, plastic, metals, aggregates) and a refuse-derived fuel fraction, which is further converted into high-added-value products. Using the new plasma gasification technology, it is possible to transform this refuse-derived fuel fraction into ...
