About the Materials Marketplace
The Materials Marketplace is an award-winning regional and national platform to facilitate company-to-company industrial reuse. Through the cloud-based platform, traditional and non-traditional industrial waste streams are matched with new product and revenue opportunities, ultimately enabling the culture shift to a circular, closed-loop economy. In addition to diverting waste from landfills, these recovery activities generate significant cost savings, energy savings, and create new jobs and business opportunities.
Path to Scale
Idea (1992): bring multiple industries together to find and implement By-product Synergy.
Action (1992-2015): deploy regional projects to demonstrate the feasibility and benefits of industrial materials reuse, and propel reuse in the national dialogue. Develop better tools and strengthen the work processes.
Scale (present): rapidly deploy multiple city, state, and national level reuse projects around the world. Enable the circular economy culture shift.
