plastic offset blocks for highway barriers, and pull box insulators for
street lighting
- four research projects looking at new ways to recycle rubber, mixed
plastics, glass, and fish waste

publications, new markets, web site development, and more
- a description of the new ReMade in Massachusetts Alliance
- projects that provided close to $100,000 to communities to lead to job
creation in the recycling of food waste, medical equipment,wood waste, and
pallets, and development of an eco-industrial park on a former brownfield
