Invitation to the Ohio By-Product Synergy Network Year 9 Kickoff Meeting

Dear Materials Marketplace Member, 

You are invited to attend the Ohio By-Product Synergy (PBS) Network’s Year 9 Kickoff on Tuesday, October 16, 2018. The Ohio By-Product Synergy Network is a program focused on developing material synergies between companies, so that one company's waste or by-product material can become another company’s raw material input. The meeting will be at the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, 2045 Morse Road, Columbus, Ohio 43229.

The Keynote presenter is Craig Butler, Director, Ohio EPA, speaking on his vision for the circular economy. Participants from various state agencies will also make brief presentations on recent successes reducing waste, making their agency and Ohio more sustainable; implementation of research findings and innovation; and environmental, energy or related challenges facing their agencies. Following will be a facilitated audience discussion to probe possible synergies within and between state agencies as well as private-public synergy development opportunities. The meeting will have two networking sessions, an introduction to By-Product Synergy and the Ohio Materials Marketplace, the famous “Around the Room” and a Work Session and Report out.

Please refer to the draft agenda for additional working meeting and network details and to aid in registration. Please note that there is a $20 charge for those attendees who are not current BPS members or partners. For additional information regarding payment, or if you have any additional questions about the event, please contact Megan Moses, Director, Ohio By-Product Synergy Network, at meganmoses@live.com.

                    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.
