The Renewable Resource Innovative Design Group Enterprise, R2IDGE, is a local green industry-focused nonprofit organization that will establish and operate an economic development park to incubate, support and develop related green businesses. Through these activities, R2IDGE creates jobs, builds local economies and reduces environmental damage through the harvest of waste streams, education, research, and the renewal of natural resources.
Valuable resources exist within all waste streams generated by human activity, including agriculture, manufacturing, retail, and personal consumption. R2IDGE cultivates businesses and enhances local economic development by closing the “waste” loop. Converting “wastes” into worthwhile, productive and cost effective assets, new economically valuable resources are created. R2IDGE’s “waste” recovery incubates new businesses and develops viable, cooperative renewable resource networks.
