Technology

Harnessing existing as well as new, disruptive technologies, it is now possible for us to divert >67% of MSW to landfill. Eliminating waste to landfill with sustainable, beneficial solutions and technologies is our core competency.

Our Layered Approach

Organix Solutions layered approach to the recovery of compostable organics is based on the same principles that govern our recycling programs.

Compostable BioPlastics

Biobased plastics (also called plant-derived) are made from a renewable resource such as corn starch. Polylactic Acid or PLA, is a commonly recognized bioplastic. PLA is made by fermenting the dextrose from a hydrolysis of corn starch. The product of this fermentation process, lactic acid, becomes the basic building block for polylactide plastics which can be digested by the microorganisms found in commercial compost facilities.
