In 1985, ARUP was a small entrepreneurial startup that set up shop in the University of Utah Research Park—which, as seen here in this 1985 photograph, still had lots of room to grow.

At Wasatch Resource Recovery (WRR), a load of scrap produce is tipped onto the floor and will soon be fed into the depackaging machine and liquefied. ARUP has joined in WRR’s efforts to divert 400 tons of food waste a day from the landfill.
