On February 6-8, 2017 two new EU projects on Enhanced Landfill Mining formally kicked off. In order to announce these two new projects (ETN NEW-MINE coordinated by SIM² KU Leuven & Interreg Europe COCOON) a widely attended press conference was held in Greenville, Houthalen, the location where also the flagship Closing the Circle project is situated. Several tv-reports were developed including two on VRT-DeRedactie.be and TV Limburg. After the press conference the EURELCO General Assembly was held. More than 80 people from 13 EU-Member States joined the meeting. On February 7, both NEW-MINE and COCOON celebrated their formal kick-off meetings.
