Phoenix Convention Center Installs ORCA

Convention Centers

Aug. 31, 2011
The Phoenix Convention Center is the first major convention center to begin using an on-site Organic Refuse Conversion Alternative. The ORCA is in essence a super composter that converts food waste into a nutrient rich liquid that can be used in gardening, or safely and sustainably disposed of in the local sewage system. The system allows the center to sustainably cater to large groups and dispose of its food waste in an eco-friendly fashion. phoenix.gov
