:metabolon - From Waste to Resource Lindlar: From waste to resource :metabolon turns landfill into an innovation site
When the Leppe landfill was designated for follow-up use, the :metabolon project was expanded to form a European Centre of Resources Management as part of the structural funding programme of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia (Regionale 2010). The body responsible for the project is the waste management association Bergischer Abfallwirtschaftsverband, which developed the location into a competence, learning and innovation centre for material conversion and site-related environmental technology and techniques. This was done jointly with Oberbergisch region, the Rheinisch-Bergisch region and the municipalities of Engelskirchen and Lindlar. Existing competencies were integrated, developed further and presented in a new light.
