Ohio EPA Launches the Ohio Materials Marketplace - Supporting the New Circular Economy

In a circular economy, all products and by-products recirculate. Over the next few decades, moving to a circular economy will dramatically transform our manufacturing and recycling industries. This contrasts with the past take, make and dispose economy. The new circular economy is attractive to everyone - including private, non-profit and government institutions - because of the combined economic and environmental benefits. Materials will continue to flow in the economy through recycling, remanufacturing, reuse and maintenance. For state policy makers, the question is how can agencies support this change in the material economy, and what programs can accelerate this transition? To help, Ohio EPA is embracing recent advances in software and implementing the Ohio Materials Marketplace, an online platform for companies to post available waste and by product materials that other companies may re-use in their production process.
