Local Hawaii Business Goes Green

Tuesday, August 13, 2019

Hawaii, Aiea Through Pacific Environmental Solutions, Environmental Biotech International (EBI) and EnviroLogik have expanded their commercial service coverage to provide cost-effective and eco-friendly solutions for leaks, sewer, grease and odor problems. These services are especially geared toward local restaurants, stadiums, assisted living facilities, hotels and other businesses which deal with inherent grease and odor problems.



Pacific Environmental Solutions has just expanded its services, using environmentally-friendly products to eliminate fats from drains and solve other wastewater and odor problems.

"The program focuses on cleanliness, hygiene, and odor control and takes us from reactive to proactive and includes a vision for a 'one-stop-shop' for environmentally-friendly products and services applicable to commercial businesses," said Kim Billion, owner of Pacific Environmental Solutions. "In addition, the products are based on harmless microbes that eat noxious substances, typically only leaving behind carbon dioxide and water – a process called bioremediation."



"Not only does this process use no harsh chemicals, it is more cost-effective," Billion said. "This is a prime example of how we continue to help our clients deal with problems but in a cost-effective manner which is also benefitting the environment. With this system, companies like mine are able to add a new level of protection for their customers while reducing their costs."



"Restaurants and hotels typically struggle with ongoing issues related to leaks, grease, drainage, and odor. It's an unfortunate by-product of food processing and really is the equivalent of heart disease for our collective infrastructure," says Aziz Tejpar, president and CEO of EnviroLogik and Environmental Biotech International. "We're proud to offer revolutionary solutions that have a positive impact on our water and land quality for the future."

FOG in the News

  • “When fats, oils, and grease are poured or flushed down your sinks, drains, or toilets they enter the sewer system where they cool, harden and stick to the inner walls of sewer pipes. Over time, as more fats, oils, and grease are added to the system, these sewer blockages build-up and harden until they completely plug the pipes. The hardness of the blockages makes them very difficult and costly to clean out.”

  • “Presence of fat, oil, and grease (FOG) in wastewater is an ever-growing concern to municipalities and solid-waste facility operators. FOG enters the sewer system from restaurants, residences, and industrial food facilities. Its release into the sewer system results in a continuous build-up that causes eventual blockage of sewer pipes.”

  • “The fats, oil and grease (FOG) found in food ingredients such as meat, cooking oil, shortening, butter, margarine, baked goods, sauces and dairy products is a major concern for New York City’s sewers. When not disposed of properly, FOG builds up in the sewer system constricting flow, which can cause sewer back-ups into homes and overflow discharges onto streets. It can also interfere with sewage treatment processes at the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plants.”
