Grand Opening: Waste Conversion Facility
Clean World Partners opened the nation's first commercial high-solid organic waste conversion facility on April 19, 2012, at American River Packaging's Sacramento headquarters. The grand opening event was attended by more than 100 state and local dignitaries, business and community leaders, and investors. Otto Construction, together with a strong design-build team, constructed the new facility.
The Clean World system installed at American River Packaging (ARP), a regional manufacturer of corrugated packaging products, will convert 7.5 tons of food waste from Campbell Soup and other regional food producers along with .5 tons of unrecyclable material from ARP into natural gas. The natural gas will be used to generate approximately 1,300 kWh of renewable electricity per day, supplying about 37% of ARP's electricity needs.
