The Ohio University Voinovich School is pleased to invite you to attend a presentation by the Ohio EPA on Tuesday, April 18 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. in Building 21, Room 105 on The Ridges to learn more about the new “Ohio Materials Marketplace,” which hosts a free online software platform for users to easily list their available by-products and waste materials, as well as post requests for materials they need.
The Marketplace is meant to create economic value for businesses and communities, divert material from Ohio landfills, and make Ohio a leader in the circular economy. More about the Marketplace can be found here: https://ohio.materialsmarketplace.org/. Ohio EPA will be presenting from approx. 10 a.m. – 11 a.m.
Given the Marketplace’s crossover with the Appalachia Ohio Zero Waste Initiative generously supported by the Sugar Bush Foundation, as well as numerous other waste-related programs and activity in the Athens-Hocking region, from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m., we invite you to continue the roundtable discussion to discuss ways in which regional businesses and entrepreneurs can capitalize on waste resource streams.
