Research of TU Cologne at the former Leppe landfill in Lindlar
:meta_raut is the cornerstone for the technical success of the application-oriented developments of :metabolon. At the research and development center :metabolon, research is done pertaining to the conversion of waste materials into energy and recyclable materials. For this, new mixtures, preparations, and treatment processes are analyzed and further developed. As a non-university research site, :metabolon provides the opportunity to carry out analyses on a semi-industrial and industrial scale - and not just in the lab.
In the framework of the research project :meta_raut, the research site will be expanded in order to develop application-oriented solutions for the increasing technical demands in the area of regenerative energy use. The focus of this project is automation technology. An interdisciplinary team of automation engineers and chemists will conduct research on this.
