: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.

The Impact of Pay-As-You-Throw Schemes on Municipal Solid Waste Management: The Exemplar Case of the County of Aschaffenburg, GermanyJuergen Morlok, Harald Schoenberger, David Styles, Jose-Luis Galvez-Martos, Barbara Zeschmar-Lahl
The “pay-as-you-throw” (PAYT) scheme is an economic instrument for waste management that applies the “polluter pays” principle by charging the inhabitants of municipalities according to the amount of residual, organic, and bulky waste they send for third-party waste management. When combined with well-developed infrastructure to collect the different waste fractions (residual waste, paper and cardboard, plastics, bio waste, green cuttings, and many recyclables) as well as with a good level of citizens’ awareness, its performance has frequently been linked to an increase in the collection rates of recyclables.
Waste-to-Resources 2017 Ways for increased material recycling of material flows from MBTMatthias Kühle-Weidemeier
By implementing modern thermal and non-thermal waste treatment technologies, waste management hast made a big leap forward. In the last two decades, Central Europe has been the motor of the development. The first decade of this century has been a period of development and installation of new processes in numerous locations. This was followed by nearly a decade of minor progress. This article will analyse the current situation and show how higher recycling rates even from mixed and residual waste can be achieved.
Waste-to-Resources 2017 Mechanical biological waste treatment plant for Bangalore west zoneMatthias Kuehle-Weidemeier, Karsten Kanning, Ketel Ketelsen
Proper solid waste management is a problem in many developing countries, especially in their big cities.
