SMART GROUND Team is pleased to welcome you to the 2nd issue of SMART GROUND newsletter!

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.

The collection of SMART GROUND Platform "start-up capital" is started.

The investigation & characterization of the selected target pilot landfills has started in partner countries, for the screening of the most common elements and metals found in municipal, mining and industrial landfills.

Let's discover pilot landfill activities in Finland!

Metsäsairila hosted pilot scale investigation, VTT led the piloting activities. After mechanical sampling, waste material was manually sorted to different fractions (metal, plastic, wood, energy waste etc) and a more detailed analysis of samples continued in the laboratories of Mikkeli University of Applied Sciences (MAMK) and VTT.
