Identification

Excess materials and products are currently not exchanged in a structured manner on a large scale. Mounting environmental pressure, consumer awareness and circular ambitions put pressure on companies for taking responsibility, they need to scale up their currently small scale initiatives. Excess Materials Exchange operates a B2B digital platform where companies buy and sell any type of excess materials, products and waste streams.The platform matches materials to their highest value reuse option. On the platform, the Resources Passport Module gives materials an identity and collects material data in a structured manner which allows to find high-value reuse options. The Tracking & Tracing Module allows users to follow physical resource streams by linking them to their digital twin through identifiers (i.e. bar-codes, QR-codes, RFID chips). This enables to communicate when and where products and materials will be released. The Valuation module quantifies the financial, environmental and societal impact of materials to understand which next use application is the most beneficial. Lastly, the Matchmaking Module facilitates the matchmaking of excess materials to new reuse options thanks to Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence.
