The European Commission has formally granted the EU Horizon 2020 NEW-MINE project with a record-breaking score of 97,6%. NEW-MINE – the “EU Training Network for Resource Recovery through Enhanced Landfill Mining” – is the first ever Horizon 2020 R&D project targeting Enhanced Landfill Mining.
The NEW-MINE consortium is now looking for a total of 15 bright PhD students (“Early Stage Researchers”) Deadline is 30 July 2016. The recruitment procedure is described in detail in the link attached and involves a high profile Recruitment Event in Leuven, Belgium (Novotel, 6 September 2016). Recruited PhD students are set to start their research around October-November 2016.

The NEW-MINE Project
NEW-MINE trains 15 early-stage researchers (ESRs) in all aspects of landfill mining, in terms of both technological innovation and multi-criteria assessments. The technological innovation follows a value-chain approach, from advanced landfill exploration, mechanical processing, plasma/solar/hybrid thermochemical conversion and upcycling, while the multi-criteria assessment methods allow to compare combined resource-recovery/remediation ELFM methods with the “Do-Nothing”, “Classic remediation” and “Classic landfill mining with (co-)incineration” scenarios. By training the ESRs in scientific, technical and soft skills, they become highly sought-after scientists and engineers for the rapidly emerging landfill-mining and broader raw-materials industries of Europe
