ReAxis makes plastics, coatings, adhesives, sealants, oil and gas drilling additives and other products using green practices, the university's Center for Green Industries and Sustainable Business Growth said Monday.

The growing company recently opened a plant in Harmar that doubles its research and development space. ReAxis has about 50 employees.

The university also will recognize the nonprofit Green Building Alliance for promoting environmentally friendly business practices during its sixth annual Beard Symposium on sustainability.
