    Hi Sam,

    It sounds like IRIS has a great technology on its hands. I'm not so sure
    about the marketing side. But as far as sources of investment and
    perhaps overall assistance with a business plan, I'd try the following

    EPA's Jobs Through Recycling Program
    http://www.epa.gov/epaoswer/non-hw/muncpl/factbook/internet/intro/epa8.htm

    The Social Venture Network
    http://www.svn.org/

    The Sustainable Jobs Fund
    http://www.sjfund.com
    Now the fourth largest community development venture capital fund in the
    US, the fund has $17 million to invest in sustainable enterprises that
    create jobs for low income individuals.

    Amy Perlmutter at the Chelsea Center in Massachusetts may also have
    ideas. See her address above.

    I suspect Gary Liss would also have some good suggestions. Also see
    above.

    Good luck and please share your progress with members of GreenYes.
