Do you want to know if you get the most out of your company’s materials, products and waste streams? We know from experience that there is a lot of financial and ecological value to be gained. But you want certainty. And proof. We can give you that within 5 business days. We map a specific material, product or waste stream for you. And answer your questions whether you lose money and can save on CO2 emissions.

Society and the planet need companies to take significant steps toward circularity. With our 4D Matchmaking module, your company’s circular ambitions can rapidly become reality. Let us identify the financial and environmental value that can be derived from your materials, products and waste streams. Let us find you new high-value reuse options. And let us link you to the innovation partners within our network so that your materials or products really are reused.
The Internal Circular Marketplace is a protected digital platform where supply and demand of materials, products or waste flows can meet. It is particularly suitable for companies with different locations, ports, airports, and industrial areas. Frequently in these organisations, used or written-off materials or products are not registered properly. This means you are missing a clear overview of your assets and materials, and are missing great opportunities to find new high-value reuse options for them.
The Internal Circular Marketplace gives a powerful boost to the realisation of your circular ambitions – and new revenue models may arise. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
Any material, component or product can be exchanged on the EME. Waste in one sector usually remains waste in that sector and the possibilities for high value reuse are low. Think about coffee leftovers. This remains waste in the restaurant sector. Optimization by for example drying and burning the leftovers at the restaurant is not always the most optimal solution. The leftovers are a valuable resource for mushroom growers. In the pilot we have circular economy A-players and frontrunners as participants. These companies, like yours, very often already have an insight into their material streams. Together we will look for the most optimal reuse opportunities for any type of the material streams between sectors and industries to truly create a circular economy.
Yes, Blockchain Technology will ensure the safe exchange of proprietary data. Companies will remain the owner of their own sensitive data while materials will be traced anonymously. The blockchain also ensures non-corruptibility and traceability of supply chains and will help prevent frauds.
Everything that we do at EME boils down to one key concept: high-value. We use a unique method to determine whether a solution for your material or waste-product is high-value. We take into account 3 elements: environmental, financial and social.
Companies often refer to the ‘waste hierarchy’ when it comes to circularity in the material and product chain. The simplest analogy is to see it as a ladder. For instance, burning materials with energy recovery scores low on the ladder because value is lost. Recycling is a higher-value way – reusing a product is an even higher-value solution, so it’s higher up the ladder.
Yet in our view, high-value equates to more than just the reduction of the ecological footprint of a product. It’s also about the financial picture and whether it provides an interesting business case. And let’s not forget the social aspect. Of course, it would be great if jobs could be created by recycling or reusing a material or waste product. However, it can’t be called a ‘high-value solution’ if people are exploited somewhere along the line.
We are continuously improving our software. At the moment it is not possible to automatically link your database to ours and upload your data like that. However, do not hesitate to contact us and tell us your needs. We are working hard on making this possible.
With a fully functioning EME the logistics will just be a click away. Until that time and during the pilot logistics we will investigate how to optimise the logistics.
Our partner Stibbe helps us and your company to investigate and overcome the legal barriers for the high value and appropriate exchange of excess materials. We are making an inventory of the most common barriers and will publish those in a report.
