European Environmental Law Forum Conference edition:2 location:Brussels date:10-12 September 2014
The presentation looks at Enhanced Landfill Mining in the light of Sustainable Materials Management, and addresses the implementation of the concept into EU environmental law, i.e. the Waste Framework Directive and the Landfill Directive. Questions that arise in this regard relate to the definitions of various waste treatments (landfilling, temporary storage, disposal and recovery, incl. preparation prior to recovery) and the waste hierarchy.
