Think of IUGIS as a giant mechanical stomach. The IUGIS technology simply mimics a natural digestion process using microorganisms to transform food waste into an environmentally-safe liquid. Unlike traditional food waste disposal where waste is transported off site to landfill, IUGIS works on-site, delivering substantial benefits to the environment and your business.
Food waste is diverted from landfill
Water and air pollution from food waste in landfill is eliminated
Reduced CO2 emissions and traffic congestion as garbage trucks are removed from the road
Cost savings on your waste management costs
Prevention of odours and pests that are attracted to food waste decomposing in your waste bins
Better handling of food waste for your staff
ORCA uses an aerobic digestion process along with microorganisms to transform food waste into an environmentally-friendly liquid that flows directly into existing plumbing on site.
ORCA food waste digesters come in four different sizes. The right model for you will depend on how much
food waste you generate every day and how many hours a day you’ll be feeding the ORCA.

Food waste represents a substantial problem for both businesses and the Earth. Excess food waste hurts the bottom line of businesses and increases waste management costs, as well as attracting pests and odours as food waste sits in garbage bins between collections. Once that food waste reaches landfill, it decomposes, releasing methane gas into the atmosphere and leachate into the waterways.
