ORCA is an innovative food waste solution.

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.

Our vision: To take every garbage truck off the road.

How our state-of-the-art technology works

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.

Discharge

Liquid is filtered safely through a 0.5mm screen into existing plumbing infrastructure.

The journey continues

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 reduce labor efficiency by keeping employees in the kitchen and reducing the number of strains and sprains.

Which model is right for you?

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.
