What is the Georgia Industrial Materials Exchange?

Georgia Industrial Materials Exchange provides a free site to link organizations that have reusable goods they no longer need to those who can use them. By providing a business reuse network, the Materials Exchange program provides an outlet for one company’s waste to be a valuable resource material to another company.

Georgia Industrial Materials Exchange develops an industrial ecology for manufactured materials so that one company’s by-products can be used by another company in lieu of “virgin” materials.

Who Can Use the Georgia Industrial Materials Exchange?

Material Wanted postings may be made by entities operating anywhere. Only Georgia companies, institutions, commercial entities, or businesses can post their unwanted Materials Available.
