1 Eco-Industrial Park Sustainable Systems Feasibility Study
Mary Ortendahl (510) - Thank you for the opportunity to provide you with this briefing Economic Development Alliance for Business (EDAB)

2 What is an EIP? Community of manufacturing and service companies
Seeks enhanced environmental and economic performance Collaborates in managing environmental and resource issues Includes energy, water and materials

3 Benefits of an EIP Helps the environment
Waste reduction and diversion goals Pollution prevention Sustainability Visibility Job creation Business retention/support for other industries Environment - helps to bring “glue” to the existing efforts - strengthens the infrastructure of businesses and programs that focus on improving the environment Waste reduction/diversion goals - promotes businesses focusing on source reduction, reuse and recycling Pollution Prevention- emphasis on air, land and water pollution prevention not only within the EIP but also to draw the attention of the broader community Sustainability - focuses on linking issues that affect the economy, society and the environment and provides benefits that lead us all to a more sustainable future - helps change perceptions of those who think the problem is “someone elses” Visibility- highlights the East Bay as a California leader in this emerging environmental industry and promotes the industry’s development (no pilot for Pres. Council on Sustainable Development) Job creation (welfare reform) - provides work/training opportunities to a wide range of skill levels Business retention/support for other industries - reduces disposal costs of materials and provides recovered materials for other firms at competitive prices - provides existing companies with a stable site for operation and the opportunity to co-locate with like businesses

4 The Feasibility Study Stage I: Economic viability Stage II:
Focused look at possible sites, planning and development issues Stage I - will determine if it is economically viable to create an EIP in the East Bay Stage II - is more detailed and will be done only if Stage I gives a “green light” to proceed

5 Stage I Similar EIP projects
Growth potential for local resource recovery businesses Market demand Appropriate mix of businesses Similar projects- - identified sites (about 16 depending on definition) - stage in planning process - degree of implementation - land and development factors - success or failure Growth potential - project future trends for this region - state direct employment benefits and multiplier effect - training opportunities - welfare reform Assess market demand - What qualities would attract tenants? - Evaluate likelihood of an EIP in the East Bay possessing these qualities Identify appropriate mix - utilize supply/demand info. to identify collector/processor service voids or materials currently being exported - Identify local end-use markets for materials with a discard supply - Identify clusters that capitalize on the market forces and are internally consistent with the three R's - describe supportive network that would complement the EIP

6 STAGE I (cont.) Economic information based on the appropriate mix
Characteristics of an appropriate location Recommendation whether or not to proceed to Stage II List of suitable sites if recommendation is to proceed Economic info. - Describe/quantify land/dev. req. for EIP - Estimate range of lease rates that would make the EIP viable - List potential public sector revenues that would accrue to host city/region EIP characteristics - Determine configuration that would best serve local resource recovery industries and the region (one location, clusters, co-location, hybrid) - Describe physical characteristics necessary (transportation such as near port, airport, public transit, roads, etc.) Recommendations - Compare costs/benefits of developing an EIP - Provide written report with quantifiable and economic justifications for the recommendations Suitable Sites - If recommendation is to proceed, provide detailed description or each site - Outline relative benefits/detriments - Prioritize sites

7 Stage II (subject to revision)
Inventory sites recommended in Stage I Identify potential tenants Assess availability of feedstocks Complete detailed economic analysis for the development Make financing recommendations

8 Role of EDAB Develop the concepts Establish partnerships
Secure funding Issue RFP Evaluate/select the proposal Administer the contract Concepts - using info. from original work group and others, developed current scope of services Partnerships - interested in having this be a collaborative effort of various funding partners - flexible to accommodate partners goals/objectives re: the EIP concept - continue to collaborate with partners RFP - Once adequate funds are secured, issue RFP Review Board - Partners and other experts in the field Administer Contract - for Stage I and for Stage II

9 Partners with EDAB U. S. Environmental Protection Agency
