Success at the 1st National Landfill Mining Conference
Our first conference was given on the 16th of September 2014, at Thessaloniki. It was a big success, attended by more than 150 people from the academic community, the private sector and the public authorities. Also, the Conference had a great impact on the media and many journalists came to cover the event. We were very pleased to get a positive feedback for the project and the Conference and we realised that there is real interest in Greece around the subject of waste and Landfill Mining in particular. You can see some photos from the event on the right.
Our next big event will be organised for summer of 2015. Stay tuned!
Local Workshop at Polygyros
Our Workshop (15/09/2014) about Landfill Mining and the LIFE+ reclaim project was also attended by many of the locals, also from diverse backgrounds such as waste contractors, recycling associations and municipal councilors. Our team gave four informative presentations on the subject and discussed with the audience. These presentations are available for download here (English page) and here (Greek page).
