Environmental Consultants for Industrial and Food Processors
Material Matters serves as a strategic partner that assists industrial and food processing businesses develop solutions for the residuals produced from manufacturing processes. We have found that businesses like yours have limited budget to focus on the back end of your facility, and are seeking innovative, cost-effective solutions for managing your residuals.
Get Help with Industrial & Food Processing Residual Challenges
We understand that each market sector and specific facility has a variety of wastewater and residuals questions, such as:
- “What is the most cost-effective way to manage our residuals now?”
- “How do we reduce our product odor?”
- “What is the regulatory pathway to use our residuals in this market?”
We have a proven record of over 20 years delivering methods and plans to suit the needs of facilities from a variety of different industries.
How We Work
Our process begins with an initial information-gathering meeting where we collect information about your needs and identify any specific challenges and specific requirements you may have.
We recognize that each of our clients are unique with diverse needs, so we need to get to know you to develop a project plan to meet your needs. We will also collaborate with you to create a schedule and keep you updated every step of the way.
Throughout our project, we will have regular progress meetings at a frequency comfortable for you. We have transparent working relationships with our partners so that no one is left in the dark!
We want you to feel comfortable with the process start to finish. While we understand our wastewater expertise is critical component as to why you hire us, we also understand effective communication, planning, and collaboration is how we continue to serve you.
As the project is winding down, we will continue our dialogue to ensure we have met (or exceeded!) your expectations. Our project plan close out also includes a client feedback survey for you to provide feedback on our strengths and areas for improvement.
