mockup-frontELFM IV Symposium Book (ed. Jones & Machiels, February 2018): This book offers a total of 50 papers, grouped according to 4 thematic categories: (1) Geophysics, remediation, pre-processing and metal extraction technologies for Enhanced Landfill Mining; (2) Thermal valorisation technologies for Enhanced Landfill Mining; (3) Upcycling technologies for Enhanced Landfill Mining; (4) Multi-criteria assessment for Enhanced Landfill Mining. The wide diversity of participants reflects EURELCO’s “quadruple helix” approach, which is essential to obtain and maintain the “Social License to Operate”, in which ELFM is fully integrated in a wider, system-level transition to a low-carbon, circular economy.
