Become a Sponsor
Value of Sponsorship:
Launch sponsors of the Materials Innovation Exchange will have the opportunity to be co-innovators in a new and unique resource that meets the needs of a global audience…
A leading edge solution to a global need
In companies, government agencies and academic institutions around the world, the focus on materials management and resource conservation is driving new interest in reclaiming materials and extracting resource value from waste. All over the world, solutions are being developed and innovative new companies and products are being launched. The Materials Innovation Exchange responds to the growing need for a centralized go-to resource for sharing experience, success stories, solutions, local resources and technical expertise.
A unique regional and worldwide resource
The Materials Innovation Exchange brings together in one place the resources, knowledge and opportunities of industrial ecology and offers valuable regional resources coupled with a global knowledge and innovation exchange.
Our audience is diverse
We invite and incentivize participation from the wide range of professionals in business, government and academia that are pioneering solutions to materials and waste reduction challenges.
Solutions on both a local and global scale
Anyone can access this information—the site gets the information out of the silos of government, academia and business and makes it available to anyone interested in innovation and creating solutions.
The site is participatory and backed by world class expertise
Opportunities for buying, selling and trading materials can be focused regionally, but are not limited to regional boundaries. Local suppliers, processors and product developers will be listed on the site to facilitate closed loop innovation.
