About Us

 

ORWACO CJSC is an Armenian-Norwegian joint venture, a “green field” company established in 2011 and located in Armenia. ORWACO harvests nutrient values from recycling organic industrial resources, to produce a variety of organic fertilizers and soil enhancers.

Production is based on natural processes with the aim to close the environmental loop and promote non-waste production. Pure biohumus (vermicompost) received from recycling of organic waste by red Californian worms is the basis for creation of variety of organic fertilizers, which are designed to improve the soil characteristics, to increase productivity and to ensure the healthy growth and development of plants.

All the products of ORWACO have organic certification and are allowed to be used in organic farming.

THE INCEPTION OF ORWACO

The idea behind creation of ORWACO was using organic waste as raw material for production of new useful products.  We believe that with our Organic Waste Processing Company (ORWACO) a good start is already made.

The making of ORWACO is a result of consistency in goals, determination and the combination of multinational efforts.

In ORWACO we adopted approaches of circular economy: reduce, reuse and recycle. Thus we contribute to sustainability in agro-ecosystems by using resources in a responsible manner.

DREAM TO REALITY

Since the university years I have been deeply concerned about the organic residues and wastes. I believe that organic waste should not be seen as a source of environmental pollution; rather it should be seen as a valuable resource that can be transformed into marketable products. Thus, one of my professional dreams became to give a second life to the organic waste.

Surrounded by Armenian and Norwegian caring people and organizations, it became possible to realize the professional dream and to give a second life to the waste.

The three-year joint scientific studies with the Armenian and Norwegian partners gave their results: we succeeded to get high-quality organic fertilizer from the processing of certain organic remnants by red Californian worms and microorganisms. In 2011 on this basis and with joint efforts we established organic waste processing factory ORWACO in the town of Abovyan, Armenia, aiming at closing the environmental loop and promoting sustainable non-waste production.

Expanding its production volumes over time, ORWACO now gives farmers an opportunity to use organic, natural fertilizers in the cultivation of various crops, refraining from harmful chemicals and giving vitamin-rich, safe products.
