Material conversion | Recycling management | Environmental technology
The Waste Disposal Centre Leppe is one of the most modern waste disposal sites in Europe and a reference facility for international experts. The objective of the :metabolon project is to redevelop the current Waste Disposal Centre Leppe by turning it into a competence, learning and innovation site for material conversion and location-related environmental technology and techniques.
The new future-oriented :metabolon site is set to integrate available skills, further develop them and show them in a new light. At the same time it is to link this economic impetus with new, soft location factors. The necessary restructuring and revitalisation of the landscape at the site has been combined with future-oriented, economically sustainable elements of use. Simultaneously, a different perception and an image change of the site have been achieved by letting people understand and experience operational functions and processes [“Transparent Landfill”].
