Abstract [en]

This paper reviews landfill mining research. By applying industrial ecology and transition perspectives, it aims to address two research questions: (i) Why should we learn how to mine the landfills? and (ii) Why don’t we mine the landfills? Emphasis is on how institutional conditions influence feasibility and further dissemination of this strategy. While benefits of landfill mining mainly materialise on the societal level, it is concluded that current policy, legislative and market conditions provide minor incentives for private actors to engage in such activities. Facilitating realisation is therefore not just a matter of knowledge production and technology but will rely on knowledge dissemination and strong actor networks that engage in politics, influence public opinion and advocate landfill mining as a way to solve wider societal concerns.
