Welcome to the 1st six-monthly newsletter of SMART GROUND project.

SMART GROUND is a H2020 project, that intends to foster resource recovery in landfills by improving the availability and accessibility of data and information on Secondary Raw Materials in the EU, while creating synergies among the different stakeholders involved in the SRM value chain. SMART GROUND is creating a single EU database to integrate all the data from existing databases and new information collected during project activities.
