ECO-FRIENDLY FOOD WASTE GOES ORGANIC
As an organic grocery store, Organic Garage wanted an environmentally friendly waste disposal system in place. Given that their produce department’s back room and waste disposal infrastructure were within plain view of their customers, ORCA satisfied the store’s need for a system that wasn’t just environmentally friendly but aesthetically friendly, and produced as little odor as possible.
Savings and benefits:
• Food waste diverted to ORCA = 7,500 lb/month
• Methane generation avoided = 360 m3/month
• Greenhouse gas emissions avoided = 3.3 tonnes eCO2/month
Savings add up to the equivalent of planting 7 trees/month or diverting 984 meals/month from landfills.
