  2. 2. Cleveland Plus Manufacturing Expertise Offers Defining the “Cleantech” Cleveland Plus Cleantech Supply Chain Strong Base for Cleantech Supply Chain Industry Stronger than U.S. Average Key Cleantech supply chain industries are much stronger in Northeast Ohio than the national average. Location Many of the products in the Cleantech supply chain are the same materials and components used in automotive, Cleantech is a fairly new term, and new industry. Quotients (LQ) show how prominent a certain industry is compared to the U.S. as a whole. As indicated in this LQ chart, aerospace and other more traditional manufacturing industries. Northeast Ohio is home to hundreds of companies According to Wikipedia, “Cleantech” is a term used Northeast Ohio LQ values are significantly higher in many Cleantech supply sectors. For instance, Fabricated Metal has that are leaders in their fields, producing components for the Cleantech economy. The industries that the California to describe knowledge-based products or services an LQ value of almost 6 in Northeast Ohio, meaning that the Cleveland Plus region is producing 600% more fabricated Green Digest defines as part of the Cleantech supply chain collectively represent $12.5 billion (7.5%) of Northeast that improve operational performance, productivity, metal than the national average. With so much capacity, Northeast Ohio is poised to export goods to wind turbine Ohio’s economy today and are projected to grow more than 20% between 2010 and 2015. This sector represents or efficiency while reducing costs, inputs, energy manufacturers globally. 36% of all manufacturing in Cleveland Plus. consumption, waste, or pollution. As part of an ongoing effort to analyze the emergence Concentration of Cleantech Northeast Ohio GRP for Top 10 of a “green” economy, the California Labor Market Information has put together a California Green Digest Supply Chain in Cleveland Plus Cleantech Related Manufacturing Sectors that defines manufacturing inputs to the “Cleantech” supply chain. The Digest aggregates national studies Other Nonmetallic Mineral Products to define the inputs required to manufacture Cleantech Plastics Products Paint, Coating and Adhesives devices, such as wind turbines. Materials, components Clay Product and Refractory and products required for these devices include steel, Bolier, Tank, and Shipping Containers Foundries plastics and coatings, much of which is already made Other General Purpose Machinery Rubber Products in Northeast Ohio, or holds opportunity based on the Paint, Coating and Adhesive region’s assets.

The organization O-NET, a branch of the U.S. Department of Labor, has identified green related occupations expected to see a significant increase in demand due to the emergence of Cleantech related industries. In many of these occupations, Cleveland Plus has an above average share of workers.
