Kent County seeks companies to be part of Sustainable Business Park

March 5, 2018

The Kent County Department of Public Works is pleased to announce it has issued a Request For Information (RFI) for potential future tenants and complementary technologies for the Sustainable Business Park planned on 200 acres adjacent to the South Kent Landfill in Byron Center. The RFI is a key step in identifying companies that want to be a part of the Park and included as part of the master planning process that will determine costs, funding sources and implementation schedule for the project.

We are sending the Request For Information to organizations, businesses, technology developers, startups and non-profits across the region, state and country. This will continue progress toward our economic and environmental goals by advancing our vision for a Circular Economy and diverting 90 percent of trash from the South Kent Landfill by 2030.

All interested parties are encouraged to visit the project website at for more information about the Sustainable Business Park. The RFI can be found here. The deadline for responses to the RFI is April 26. A live teleconference and tour will be held March 28 to allow respondents opportunities to ask questions about the RFI process and project.
