              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.
