  1. 1. Landfill Mining : Institutional challenges for the implementation of resource extraction from waste deposits

    Author : Nils Johansson; Joakim Krook; Mats Eklund; Myra Hird; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Landfill mining; recycling; mineral policy; institutions; transitions; mining.;

    Abstract : The overall aim of the thesis is to examine the institutional conditions for the implementation and emergence of landfill mining. The result shows that  current policy makes it difficult for landfill mining operators to find a market outlet for the exhumed material, which means that landfill mining may result in a waste disposal problem.

  2. 2. Economics of Landfill Mining : Usefulness and Validity of Different Assessment Approaches

    Author : John Laurence Esguerra; Joakim Krook; Niclas Svensson; Steven Van Passel; Miguel Brandao; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Economic assessment; Uncertainty management; Landfill management; Landfill mining;

    Abstract : Landfill mining (LFM) is an alternative strategy to manage landfills that integrates remediation with secondary resource recovery. At present, LFM remains as an emerging concept with a few pilot-scale project implementations, which presents challenges when assessing its economic performance. READ MORE

  3. 3. Landfill mining approach for resource recovery from glass dumps into the circular economy

    Author : Richard Mutafela; William Hogland; Lennart Mårtensson; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Resource recovery; landfill mining; hazardous waste; hydrometallurgical extraction; geophysical mapping; circular economy; Återvinning av resurser; gruvdrift; farligt avfall; hydrometallurgisk utvinning; geofysisk kartläggning; cirkulär ekonomi; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : Landfills and open dumps have been the most cost-effective waste disposal option, resulting in over 500,000 landfills and dumps in the EU alone. They pose significant environmental and health threats due to emission of toxic gases and release of persistent contaminants to soil and groundwater, triggering a considerable global economic impact annually.

  4. 4. Environmental and economic conditions of landfill mining : The development and application of a systems analysis approach

    Author : Per Frändegård; Joakim Krook; Niclas Svensson; David Laner; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Landfill mining is a relatively unproven, still uncertain concept for extracting resources from landfills. Previous studies in the field have mainly focused on solving local environmental problems related to leaching and other landfill management issues, or characterizing the material composition of various landfills.

  5. 5. Landfills and glass dumpsites as future bank accounts of resources – waste characterization and trace elements extraction

    Author : Yahya Jani; William Hogland; Monica Odlare; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Landfill mining; metals extraction; glass dumpsites; hazardous waste; chemical extraction; reduction-melting; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science;

    Abstract : Environmental pollution and health threats as well as scarcity of raw materials, water, food and energy are among the main challenges our world are now facing. Simultaneously, landfills and open dumpsites still are the dominant global waste disposal option even with their long term environmental impacts in case of greenhouse gases and contaminated leachates.
