The Bergische Waste Management Association (Bergischer Abfallwirtschaftsverband) with headquarters in Engelskirchen is a public corporation within the North Rhine-Westphalia of Germany and operator of the landfill Leppe. Established in the 1980s, the advanced filling stage of the area is regarded as an opportunity to redefine the use of the site, based on its core competences and uniqueness, and give it a new image as a scientific centre of excellence for location related environmental technologies, a business location and a learning and experience centre for material conversion (metabolon). Within the „Regionale2010“ program the BAV and the University of Applied Sciences Cologne developed the site into a centre of competences for renewable energies (“Waste to Energy”).
