|German term or phrase: Stoff- und Flächenrecycling|
|It's the name of a course of study.|
reclaiming materials and land, recovering waste materials and rehabilitating derelict sites
Without more context, it is impossible to say what is intended.
Stoffrecycling and Flächenrecycling are so hugely disparate activities that I can only surmise that the recycling of industrial facilities is meant, in which both activities may occur at once. This could be rendered as "reclaiming materials and land".
In a broader sense, possibilities include:
Recovering waste materials and rehabilitating derelict sites
Materials recovery and land reclamation
