Abstract:
The overall objective of SUFALNET is to reduce environmental risks and to stimulate re-use of closed landfills through exchange and dissimination of policies, projects and instruments.
SUFALNET aims to identify and bring together expertise and best practice and promote joint development of policy programmes available in Europe on redevelopment and aftercare of landfills, so that closed landfills might finally be dealt with.In this way EU Member States can combine forces te deal effectively with environmental risks posed by these former and closed landfills. It will also help them to find new uses for these landfills, thus increasing the efficient use of building space. The general public and stakeholders will be informed stakeholders in order to change the negative image of closed landfills. SUFALNET aims to get the issue of closed landfills at the European agenda by promoting their activities and results through available communication channels like newsletters, brochure and website.
