The target group where master students who for a period of three months work on data collection and analyzing the three different case studies: (i) Engineering Closing Measures for Sanitary Landfills, (ii) How to design an Sanitary Engineering Landfill (iii) Biogas engineering calculations. The students were mentored by project expert throughout the duration of the project.

The first phase of the project was Data Collection; students with the mentors based their work on the field to identify the main problems/challenges on site. During the second phase the students get involved in the engineering calculations to design and calculate the requirement objectives.
