Market & Economic Development

Metal Rolls FactoryEconomic development and environmental protection not only can co-exist, they must. It is the terms of this coexistence that allow for discussion and disagreement, and open the door for creativity.

Full Circle’s work in this arena ranges from straightforward market expansion for environmentally-preferable products, to developing recovery and processing infrastructure for under-utilized materials, to changing the terms of the debate by moving costs away from ratepayers, taxpayers, and local governments and toward producers and consumers.
