Local Stakeholder Workshop for the Marche & Lazio Regions

On April 19, 2024, the co-creation workshop for PROMISCES Case Study 4 (Innovative landfill leachate treatment to enable resource recovery from wastewater treatment plants) took place in Rome, Italy, at the infrastrucutres of our partner Acea.

Around 20 participants from different sectors, e.g. industry, waste, public health, environment and water operators, came together for the workshop on "developing a system-wide, zero pollution strategy to support management of landfill leachate".

During the workshop, ARPA Veneto, the organization in charge of environmental protection, on landfill leachate management, gave a brief presentation. Further, Massimiliano Sgroi  from our partner Università Politecnica delle Marche presented the technical solution being developed in Case Study 4.

The very lively discussions following the presentations revealed that the participants prioritized barriers/challenges for the adequate management of landfill leachate, espeically leachate containing PFAS/PMTs. For the prioritized barriers, the participants brainstormed solutions and discussed the feasibility of the solutions.

The workshop in Rome was part of the project's task 5.4 where we develop strategies around the technical solutions from PROMISCES.

We would like to thank all participants for the great discussions!
