Organix, Inc.

Organix is an organic residuals management company specializing in the management, production, utilization, marketing and sales of organic-based soil amendments – primarily those generated by confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs) and municipalities. The Company was founded in early 2001 as a result of the challenges with managing a growing compost and yard debris recycling facility in a suburban area of Portland, Oregon. To date Organix has processed over 4 billion pounds of material across the Northwest and beyond offering organic waste consulting, finished product sales, environmental impact resolution and public relations campaigns.

Research and Development: Organix has entered into several strategic relationships with companies to harness the potential found in commercial food waste, yard wastes and manure. Municipalities are under increasing pressure to divert organic residuals from the landfill. Methane digestion plants for electricity or natural gas conversion are now being explored. CAFOs are also under great pressure nationally to manage manure. The USEPA and USDA have jointly issued regulations requiring CAFOs to comply with manure handling guidelines.

In recent years, U.S. organic waste producers have become targets for various regulatory agencies and environmental watchdog groups due to waste stream production—often referenced as nutrient load.

Organix specializes in taking agricultural, municipal and other organic wastes and turning them into valuable, revenue generating soil amendments through composting and power production in order to minimize organic waste accumulation and consequences.

Serving the agricultural community by converting organic residuals into marketable, high value products.

Organix was founded in 2001 with one primary goal – to serve clients by creating value-added products from organic residuals.

There is plenty of pressure on a business to react to changing worldwide economics, the environment and local regulations. If you produce organic residual by-products, things are even more complicated.

Materials once considered a waste, can now be converted to renewable power, fertilizer or premium soil amendments. Techniques have improved and strategies have evolved, but our number one goal hasn't changed.

Organix converts 1 billion pounds of manure annually into marketable products.

And we are just getting started.
