Commercial kitchens are well known for producing excessive amounts of fat, oil and grease (FOG) waste. If you work in or run a commercial kitchen, being FOG smart could save you thousands of pounds a year.
When FOG is disposed of via sinks and drains it cools and solidifies. The result is blockages in these areas as well as in the surrounding sewers, which won't just cause you unnecessary expense but will also deem you the neighbour from hell to surrounding properties, which it will also affect. Cleveland Biotech (Cbio) coined the term ?FOG smart? to coincide with its GreaseBeta Total FOG Management systems. A simple definition of FOG smart is having appropriate measures in place to avoid fat, food debris, oil and grease entering wastewater outlets and blocking drains and sewers.
Cbio's GreaseBeta Total FOG Management solutions combine biological dosing and mechanical grease removal measures to catch food debris and dissolve fat, oil and grease and/or separate it from wastewater. Each solution is tailored to the needs and budget of the individual customer. Equipment could include the GreaseBeta dosing units, fat traps, food solids strainers and/or comprehensive automated, point of source grease recovery units (GRU).
Why be FOG smart?
Water companies are increasingly prosecuting businesses that breach wastewater and environmental laws. This can be anything from a sizeable fine to business closure, and your business will foot the bill for any sewer unblockage works carried out too. The size of your business doesn't matter; one-site businesses and multinational conglomerates are all facing the same fate if they fail to comply with the law.
Am I FOG smart?
If you have any of the equipment stated above, then the answer is yes. Perhaps you have a sink strainer? This protects drains from food debris but still allows FOG to make its way through where it solidifies and blocks the receiving sewer network.
Other methods of FOG waste management can merely push the problem further along the line, whereas Cbio's GreaseBeta TFM solutions eliminate the problems all together at the source. You can make simple changes yourself to avoid FOG waste blockages by refraining from pouring oil or fat into sinks or drains and thoroughly scraping crockery clear of allfood debris before rinsing and washing, but for a more thorough, no obligation evaluation of your specific requirements, why not give us a call.
