Project Title & Description
Chicago Manufacturing Center
The Chicago Manufacturing Center (CMC) proposes to develop an approach for supporting regional implementationof the byproduct synergy (BPS)efforts. BPS efforts bring businesses together in a geographic area and look for synergistic opportunites to reduce, reuse or recycle wastes produced by the participating companies. CMC will develop a "how to guide" for implementing a local BPS effort and will develop a proposed regional approach based on its own experience the Chicago Waste to Profit Network. CMC will seek input from other stakeholders involved with BPS efforts in Region 5. CMC's goal is to support the development of four new BPS efforts in Region 5.
