CBIO offers a solution for clearing blocked drains caused by the build up of fat, oil and grease
1 March 2012, News release from Cleveland Biotech Limited
Environmental biotechnology company CBio offers a solution for companies that need to combat the build-up of fat, oil and grease and end the costly problem of clearing blocked drains.
It is estimated that fat, oil and grease causes approximately 75pc of blockages and related floods requiring the need to clear clogged drains. Despite the management of waste streams that can cause problems being taken increasingly more serious by authorities, not everyone is aware of their responsibilities and the consequences of falling foul of the legislation.
Water companies follow a strict policy of 'the polluter pays', so if a problem that causes a clogged drain can be attributed to a specific source then the proprietor of that establishment can expect at the very least a visit from the local water company which may wish to make further investigations into fat-clogged drains.
The issue of responsibility regarding this becomes 'murky' if fat is disposed of by a contract caterer or tenant, who have no direct accountability for the infrastructure of the building in which they are supplying their services. In these cases it is beholden on the landlords of the site to ensure that responsibility for any blockages lies clearly with the tenant/service provider to prevent it. Making it in their interest to ensure that these problematic substances do not reach the drainage network.
To help combat the issue of clogged systems, CBio has developed and manufactured a biological grease management system that works as a drain unblocker. The GreaseBeta is the cost effective way to biologically prevent odours and blockages.
At the heart of the GreaseBeta system is Amnite L100, a liquid, biological product that rapidly degrades oil and grease, converting them into environmentally harmless compounds which act as a drain unblocker. Unlike chemical alternatives, Amnite L100 does not merely 'move' the problem elsewhere, it eliminates it altogether helping prevent the need for clearing blockages. It is odourless, does not contain any pathogens and is made from non-toxic ingredients, making it safe to use in a catering environment to help prevent clogging.
The GreaseBeta liquid fat digester is an effective drain unblocker and is dispensed via a wall mounted unit. Automatic daily dosing eliminates human error and ensures the optimum level of lipase producing bacteria are maintained in the drain line to clear blocked drains. The system avoids frequent emptying of fat traps, disruptions to the kitchen, lost business due to offensive smells, emergency rodding and damage from flooding resulting. Benefits include free running systems, controlled costs and the satisfaction of using an environmentally friendly response to a pollution problem.
