The fifth International Symposium on Enhanced Landfill Mining (ELFM V) will be organised in Leuven (Belgium) on February 6, 2020, exactly 2 years after the previous ELFM symposium. The one-day event features a high-quality, “beyond-science-only” programme on Dynamic Landfill Management and Enhanced Landfill Mining. 

ELFM V provides the floor to invited international experts, as well as the early-stage researchers from the ETN NEW-MINE project who will present their final results. The Symposium includes two interactive debates about how Europe is going to deal with its 500,000 landfills. 

Registration is free of charge for a maximum of 75 participants on a first come first served basis. 

The fifth symposium will further develop the lessons learned from the previous symposium, ELFM-IV organised in February 2018, and from the 2nd seminar on ELFM in the European parliament.  


COCOON supports the organization of this event, Eddy Wille from the Public waste Agency of Flanders will present COCOON and the new paradigm on dynamic landfill management.
