Environmental Engineering Master’s students from the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) recently visited Braambergen, one of Afvalzorg’s landfills, where the ‘Introduction to Sustainable Management’ pilot programme is currently taking place. The visit aimed to provide students with hands-on experience in landfill management, focusing on the use of innovative aeration techniques to enhance landfill stabilisation and potentially eliminate the need for long-term aftercare.

During the visit, students carried out a variety of field measurements, including pressure tests to assess well connectivity, methane screenings to detect emissions, and GPS measurements to monitor land settlement. These activities were designed to give students practical insights into the diverse research conducted at landfill sites, enhancing their understanding of the field’s complexities and limitations. The students could also learn how to operate different measurement equipment, bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application.

Afvalzorg is committed to contributing to the education of future generations and supporting academic research. By collaborating with universities like TU Delft, Afvalzorg aims to share knowledge and help develop sustainable waste management practices. This partnership underscores the importance of integrating academic research with industry practices to drive innovation and sustainability in waste management.
