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.” – Niagara Falls City Hall Website, 2019

“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.” – ‘Problems and Control of Fat, Oil and Grease”, ResearchGate, July 2014

“Our trials at four separate McDonalds sites from April to June 2005 proves that Environmental Biotech’s Grease Eradication System can make considerable cost-savings. In fact, McDonalds saved over £15,000 (US$ 29,000) through the reduction of reactive call-outs throughout the trials.” John Benton, Maleon public health engineering department, August 2006

“Wamplers Chicken processes over 160,000 birds per day. This generates approximately 650,000 gpd of wastewater. The treatment system consists of rotary drum screens, gravity separation, ozonization,and two 4 million gallon aerobig ponds…” – Wamplers Chicken, Charlotte, NC

“Large amounts of oil and grease in wastewater can cause problems in collection system pipes. Grease sticks to the insides of sewer pipes, both on your property and in the streets. This decreases pipe capacity and, therefore, requires that piping systems be cleaned more often and/or replaced sooner than otherwise expected. Oil and grease also hamper effective treatment at the wastewater treatment plant.” – City of Durham, NC

Breakthrough wastewater treatment for FOG removal. Test results at a dairy farm show an effective wastewater treatment method that combines electrically induced gas flotation and advanced oxidation for FOG removal.– WaterWorld, Water Technology

“Fat, oil and grease often ends up being washed down the kitchen sink – but this can harden, blocking pipes and causing pollution.– Water for Life, Southern Water
