CONCEPT: TURNING WASTE STREAMS INTO REVENUE STREAMS
A regional cross-sector platform enabling businesses and organizations to connect and find uses for secondary materials and by-products.
Unlocking regional collaboration and diverse experimentation of business models and operations.
The platform aims to create an innovative cross-sector eco-system as a collaborative network of businesses, organizations and entrepreneurs, where one organization’s waste becomes another organization’s resource, generating new business opportunities and job creation.
Organisations whether they are public entities, industry, small business, social entrepreneurs or NGOs can establish online marketplaces, enable new supply chains, establish or collaborate with new services hubs and more.
