Designing Out Landfill! - A Mission

January 23, 2011

Merry Christmas

Annick Collins from Superblue recently joined the 'Designing Out Landfill' mission in The Netherlands.

The mission was organised by the Materials, and the Environmental Sustainability Knowledge Transfer Networks, and The Science and Innovation team at the UK Embassy in the Netherlands. The mission which investigated how The Netherlands 'do it!' was supported by the Technology Strategy Board.
Annick traveled to The Netherlands to learn at first hand the country's approach to designing out the need for landfills. The Netherlands has a zero tolerance approach to landfill and the aim of the mission was to help those with an interest in waste, including local authorities, waste handlers, waste recovery facility operators, and designers, understand how this is being achieved.
