Matium Minute Vol.1-PRC + Team

Matium has too much going on to wait until next Monday! With that we present our first Matium Minute to quickly cover the big news coming out of our organization.

Matium at PRC

The Matium team will be at the Plastic Recycling Conference next week in Grapevine, TX!

We look forward to meeting with many of you and discussing everything going on in the world of Matium. Our team will be around the conference floor and happy to answer any questions you may have as well as give demos of the platform.

Matium is launching our public material database on the Network in early April. We will be collecting technical data sheets and line cards from vendors to host their materials on the most searchable procurement platform there is.

We will also be releasing our carbon emissions reporting tool. Be sure to find us at the show if your company is looking for a partner to simplify and automate your sustainability tracking.
