Landfill Mining represents a potential strategy to mitigate environmental pollution and recover at the same time valuable materials and land.

This tool allows evaluating Landfill Mining Projects with respect to economics and climate impact. The user can specify the composition of the landfilled waste, the technology applied to valorize the waste, treatment costs as well as revenues achievable by the valorization of materials, land or landfill space. The tool calculates the physical flows of different waste materials associated with the mining project and the thereby induced substitution of primary resources, costs and greenhouse gas emissions are assessed.
