                          Introducing the Ohio Materials Marketplace

                          Ohio EPA Director Craig W. Butler is in Sandusky today to announce the launch of a
                          new online service whereby Ohio businesses, not-for-profits and government organizations
                          can advertise and acquire potentially useful products and materials that might otherwise be
                          destined for disposal in landfills. The new Ohio Materials Marketplace (OMM) is a free online
                          platform allowing these organizations to connect and find solutions to material reuse and
                          recycling needs.


                          “With statewide access to thousands of Ohio’s businesses, communities and other
                          organizations, Ohio EPA’s Division of Environmental & Financial Assistance (DEFA) is well
                          positioned to bring members together in this modern online marketplace,” Director Butler said.
                          “This new service positions Ohio as a leader in the circular economy, helping remove materials
                          from the waste stream, promoting jobs and allowing for better efficiency and savings in the
                          processes of creating goods and services.”


                          Examples of materials posted on OMM (and their potential re-uses) might include
                          common items such as bulk wooden pallets (mulch base) or used bricks (building materials).
                          Other items might reflect materials from industrial processes such as spent foundry sand (to be mixed with potting soil), or specialized items such as spent hydro-treating catalyst (metals
                          recovery).


                          Along with browsing for materials, users of OMM can post “wanted” items that might
                          substitute for raw materials or other items members currently purchase. Examples of such
                          requests that have been posted thus far include bulk alumina oxide (for metals
                          harvesting/recovery) and bulk food waste in packaging (to be used for anaerobic
                          digestion/energy recovery).


                          What differentiates the Ohio Materials Marketplace from other online markets is that the
                          platform is active in design and functionality rather than passive. Previous models (such as the
                          Ohio Materials Exchange) and similar services in other states worked as a simple bulletin
                          board with little or no engagement by the host. The new OMM is maintained by Ohio EPA
                          which markets the site to potential users, verifies that users (and items posted) meet
                          qualifications to participate, and actively works to facilitate connections between users. The
                          site is specifically designed as a business-to-business or business-to-community exchange for
                          recyclables and reusable materials.


                          In the circular economy, products and by-products recirculate productively through
                          reuse, remanufacturing, recycling and maintenance. Users of OMM can make or save money
                          by finding a market for their unwanted materials and avoiding landfill tipping fees; buyers save
                          money by having access to sellers’ discounted (or free) materials; Ohio’s environment benefits
                          by having more material removed from the waste stream.


                          The program is being launched with support from the not-for-profit United States
                          Business Council for Sustainable Development.
