Recycling funds
Eight projects, including three in southeastern Wisconsin, will share $665,400 in Recycling Market Development funds, awarded by the Recycling Market Development Board.
The following summarizes the successful proposals in southeastern Wisconsin:
Advance Cast Stone, Random Lake, $125,000 recycling loan. This manufacturer of precast concrete products, primarily architectural panels, serves construction firms throughout Wisconsin, Illinois and the Midwest. It seeks to expand its production capacity to utilize utility generated fly ash as a component in its precast concrete products, along with bottom ash and foundry sand. The project could divert up to 350 tons per year of fly ash from landfills, in addition to smaller quantities of bottom ash and foundry sand. The company will use its loan to purchase equipment. The project will leverage $125,000 in additional investment and commercialize research taken by UW-Milwaukee.
Wisconsin Cast Metals Association, Milwaukee, $15,000 recycling early planning grant. This not-for-profit trade association represents foundries that produce about 85 percent of the metal castings made in Wisconsin. As of 1996, foundries in Waukesha and Milwaukee Counties were annually landfilling about 250,000 tons of byproducts. The association will use its grant to study the feasibility of co-processing byproducts form multiple foundries. Experience in other states has shown that centralized co-processing can provide viable market access for small foundries, enhance quality control and environmental management, and generate effective marketing efforts. The project will leverage $9,000 in additional investment.
Wastecap Wisconsin, Milwaukee, $25,000 market development education grant. This industry-supported organization provides waste reduction and recycling assistance through business-to-business peer exchange. This grant will allow WasteCap to work with businesses to reduce food waste and develop new markets for the material. Three businesses that generate food waste will be involved in a pilot project to evaluate new methods of handling and processing food waste. A publication targeted to the grocery and hospitality industries will be developed and will include information derived from the pilot study as well as incorporate information on existing food waste recovery programs.
Minority Loans
Westside Healthcare Association of Milwaukee will receive a $100,000 loan from the state’s Minority Business Development Fund. “This start-up firm will develop a community health center to treat patients in medically underserved areas of Milwaukee, ” said Gov. Tommy Thompson. The project will create 45 jobs over the next two years and leverage $1,149, 957 in additional investment.
