The state of Indiana has released a total of $500,000 to IDEM's Recycling Market Development Program. This money will be made available through grants to aid private businesses purchase equipment specifically needed to remanufacture recyclable materials into finished products or industrial feedstocks.
Grants will range from $25,000 up to $200,000 with a required 50 percent match. The grant round is expected to be competitive. Deadline for submissions is June 3, 2013. Complete instructions and information regarding eligibility criteria, may be found on the IDEM Forms page.
The Recycling Market Development Program is administered by IDEM and operates under the Recycling Market Development Board as established by IC 4-23-5.5. The Board will make all final funding determinations of eligible projects. Approval of funding will be announced at the August Recycling Market Development Board meeting.
The Indiana Recycling Market Development Board commissioned a municipal solid waste characterization study to determine the types of recyclable materials still going into Indiana landfills. The study completed by Purdue University—Calumet allowed college students to discover first-hand the challenges in measuring Indiana’s waste stream.
