28. COCOON landfill management: from landfill to useful resource

In Europe there are over 500 000 landfills. What to think about the resources stored in and the land taken by these landfills?

This workshop will present the first results of the landfill management in the 6 COCOON regions with examples from Flanders and the Netherlands. We also focus on the EU landfill directive with regard to follow up of former landfills and the conclusions of the session in the European Parliament (20 November 2018).

Interest awakened? Do you want to discuss about possibilities of former landfills and steps for the future? Join us at our workshop!
