This study was performed to analyse the technical and economical feasibility of a project concerning the recovery of foundrywastes from a landfill. In such a context, an evaluation of the total amount of residues that could be recovered was performed by using the physical chemical characterization of landfilled wastes: molding and core sands, furnace dusts, finishing dusts, muds, calcium hydroxide and refractory slags. Field tests were realized employing both geophysical methods both the digging of trenches. Two cells of the landfill were investigated by means of geophysical methods using magnetic and electromagnetic techniques. The physical and chemical characterization of wastes was employed in order to determine the best geophysical methods to locate the useful fractions of wastes in landfill and to establish the occurring treatment cycle for the recovery of useful fractions. A cost–benefit analysis was performed to evaluate the feasibility of the proposed landfill mining operation.
