Our Users

Tennessee Materials Marketplace users represent businesses and organizations at every stage of the circular economy - from collection and processing to manufacturers making new goods with recycled materials. The Materials Marketplace can be used as tool for companies to explore real-time data on waste and by-product materials and make decisions on infrastructure and process investments; or as a tool to help find new solutions for hard-to-recycle materials.


Recycling Sector

Recycling companies are using the Materials Marketplace to identify new customers and new buyers for collected/processed material. If you’re considering making a new infrastructure investment, opening up a service offering for a new material, or need to do additional research before accepting a customer material - use the Materials Marketplace to identify and test the appetite for specific end-markets before making any commitments.


Manufacturing Sector

Manufacturers can use the Materials Marketplace to find new solutions for challenging waste and by-product materials, and to source recycled feedstocks to help reach recycled content and sustainability goals. Transactions facilitated by the Materials Marketplace are measurable and tracked - in addition to diverting waste from landfill, these activities often generate significant cost savings, energy savings, and create new jobs and business opportunities.



Entrepreneurs can use the Materials Marketplace to find suitable materials and innovate to build new reuse and recycling businesses. Access to TDEC and supporting economic development groups gives Marketplace users a unique connection to resources to explore new business opportunities in the reuse and recycling space. Lets see what we can build together.
