Excess Materials Exchange

Turns waste into wealth

Founding year:2017

Location:The Netherlands

Theme:Sustainable Productions Systems

The purpose of Excess​ ​Materials​ ​Exchange​ ​(EME) ​is​ ​to​ ​reinstate​ ​waste​ ​for​ ​the​ ​valuable​ ​resource​ ​that​ ​it​ ​is.​ ​

EME​ ​is​ ​a​ ​digital,​ ​secure​ ​marketplace​ ​where​ ​companies​ ​can exchange​ ​excess​ ​materials​ ​and​ ​products.​ ​We​ ​actively​ ​match​ ​supply​ ​and​ ​demand,​ ​and​ ​we actively​ ​facilitate​ ​material​ ​matches​ ​with​ ​their​ ​highest​ ​value​ ​reuse​ ​opportunity.​ ​This​ ​creates​ ​a transparent​ ​and​ ​reliable​ ​source​ ​of​ ​secondary-​ ​or​ ​excess​ ​materials,​ ​ranging​ ​from​ ​steel​ ​plates to​ ​textile​ ​fibers.​ ​

Joining​ ​the​ ​EME​ ​enables​ ​companies​ ​to​ ​become​ ​more​ ​resource​ ​resilient, decrease​ ​their​ ​environmental​ ​footprint​ ​and​ ​improve​ ​their​ ​bottom​ ​line​ ​by​ ​turning​ ​their​ ​waste into​ ​wealth.
