ORCA technology simply mimics a natural digestion process. It works using the same principles that our body, and other living organisms are governed by. ORCA creates the perfect thermophilic biological environment for the microorganisms to digest food waste into a liquid.
ORCA is a hyperlocal, distributed alternative to the traditional truck and bin collection system. We deliver significant savings because we eliminate trucking from the process while significantly reducing the harmful emissions that come with truck traffic.
The Edmonton EXPO Centre is on a mission to make large-scale events more sustainable – implementing ORCA’s aerobic digester technology is just one of the ways they are making an impact. Tune in to learn more about how on-site organic waste disposal is revolutionizing their kitchen and benefitting their bottom line.
ORCA designs, manufactures and installs the leading technology in the food waste recycling industry. ORCA uses mostly air, along with water and microbiology to turn your food waste into an environmentally safe liquid that goes down the drain and is disposed of using the existing sanitary sewer infrastructure.
Compatible food waste is loaded into the ORCA unit on-site.
ORCA’s proprietary Biochips and microbial mixtures are added.
Aerobic digestion begins once oxygen from the air is introduced to the mixture.
Food waste is digested into smaller pieces, eventually transforming into a liquid.
Liquid is filtered safely through a 0.5mm screen into existing plumbing infrastructure.
Once at the waste water treatment plant, the journey is not over. The liquid can then be used to create renewable, sustainable energy.
Our technology creates meaningful cost savings for customers while diverting food waste from landfills. Landfill diversion reduces both carbon dioxide and methane gas emissions. ORCA also helps to increase labor efficiency by keeping employees in the kitchen and reducing the number of strains and sprains.
With four different model sizes, ORCA can accommodate any kitchen’s food waste volumes and space limitations.
All ORCA models are equipped with onboard scales that will track the weight of every piece of food waste you put into it. The scales connect to our proprietary ORCA Portal, a personalized dashboard that will allow you to analyze real-time data, create customized reports, and look at the amount of food waste diverted over time.
We have two business models to fit your organization’s requirements: rent, or buy. In order to keep everything running smoothly, we complement our technology with a service package to fit your needs.
All you have to concern yourself with, is feeding your ORCA.
