Funding Secured for Innovative Aggregates Trading Platform

Funding Secured for Innovative Aggregates Trading Platform

The Materials Exchange Platform, a matchmaking website for trading soils and aggregates, has secured its first round of seed funding. Established by Soil Link Ltd, the platform aims to transform how construction materials are viewed and utilised, promoting sustainability and resource efficiency.

The Vision Behind the Platform

Founders Will Rundle and Kobe Tonkin conceived the idea of a national database to connect construction companies and their projects, facilitating the reuse of soils and aggregates. The platform serves as a bridge between those looking to dispose of excess materials and those in need of them, thus reducing waste and encouraging recycling.

Key Features and Benefits

  • National Database: The platform provides a comprehensive database where construction companies can list available or required materials, simplifying the process of finding and acquiring necessary resources.
  • SaaS Model: Soil Link operates as the only software as a service (SaaS) platform in the UK dedicated to the exchange of construction materials, offering an innovative approach to material management.
  • Resource Reuse: By viewing materials not as waste but as valuable resources, the platform promotes the circular economy, where materials are continually repurposed and reused.
  • Environmental Impact: The positive environmental impact is anticipated to be substantial, as the platform will help reduce landfill waste, lower carbon emissions from material transportation, and conserve natural resources.

Investment and Future Prospects

The initial round of seed investment has been backed by three investors, marking a crucial milestone in the platform's development. This funding will enable Soil Link to enhance its services, expand its user base, and further develop its technology to meet the growing demands of the construction industry.

The Materials Exchange Platform is poised to play a significant role in the construction industry's move towards sustainability. By facilitating the reuse of soils and aggregates, it helps companies work towards net-zero goals and supports the development of a circular economy.
