By-Product Synergy NW member-the Materials Innovation ExchangeOver the last four years of leading the By-Product Synergy NW Network, we’ve been inspired by the innovation and entrepreneurial problem-solving that is activated when a cross-industry group gets together! Add in the resources of academic institutions and government stakeholders and you have a true can-do mix of people ready and willing to make a difference in their companies and communities. This has inspired our members to develop this website—a place to share what they’ve learned and learn from others working on similar regional solutions. We invite you to participate by posting your stories and successes, offering materials, and sharing innovative solutions.

Learn more about the networking and leadership opportunities available through the By-Product Synergy NW Network and NBIS, the Network for Business Innovation & Sustainability. See below for links to other projects across the country.
