  • Ecofriendly Alternative to Fight Grease Build-ups

    Grease traps or Grease interceptors capture the grease that goes down the kitchen drains. The simple fixture prevents slimy build up inside the drainpipes, which may result in choked drains and backflows. It is essential to cleanout these traps timely before the build up is too high to tackle. Properly maintained grease interceptors allow smooth operation of the drains by keeping the water ...

  • Analysis of the impact of the industrial fat, oil and grease (FOG) on a municipal wastewater treatment plant by means Respirometry and microscopic Bioindication

    The main impact that the industrial fat, oil and grease (FOG) could make in a municipal wastewater treatment plant is mainly coming from its slowly biodegradable COD (sbCOD) The wastewater entering in a municipal WWTP tends to include a percentage of slowly biodegradable COD in the range of 35 to 65% of the total COD; but when this percentage surpasses the habitual range, normally it is due to ...

  • Case Study - The performance of the grease degrading bioproduct greasolux in the meat manufacturing factory and municipal WWTP

    Problem A municipal waste water treatment plant in one Baltic town continuously had problems with the fat, oil and grease (FOG) accumulation in the sewer lines, lift stations and waste water treatment plant, since the start up of a local meat processing facility. The highly polluted waste water directly impacted the treatment plant in the following ways: Increased grease ...

  • Respirometry study about the olive oil effects in the activated sludge process case study

    The problem of Oils in the Activated Sludge Process In many activated sludge plants excessive oils discharges can give rise to Nocardia foaming which causes major operational problems. While the bulk of the oils are removed in Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) units or grease interceptors the remainder must be treated in the wastewater treatment system. But however, in case of high ...

  • CH#1138 - Anaerobic Digesters

    Waste Type: Fats, oils and grease (FOG) in Anaerobic Digesters Problem: FOG waste poses a challenge for most municipal wastewater collection systems and treatment plants. Although fats, oils and grease will biodegrade in an anaerobic digester, high concentrations will tend to 'mat' on the sludge surface, lowering digestion efficiency. This Midwestern municipal facility was no different. The 1.5 ...

  • Performance of Aerobic MBR Treating High Strength Oily Wastewater at Mesophilic –Thermophilic Transitional Temperatures

    AbstractThe performance of an aerobic membrane-coupled bioreactor (MBR) operating at mesophilic- thermophilic transitional temperatures (40°C) treating oily rendering wastewater has been evaluated in terms of COD, BOD5, oil and grease, solids and ammonia removal at 5 and 10-day HRT. The COD removal efficiency increased from 78% to 96%, BOD5 removal from 87 to 99% and oil and grease removal from ...

  • A critical review of experimental and predicted methane generation from anaerobic codigestion

    Anaerobic digestion is increasingly being considered as a treatment option for an extensive range of waste biomass, due to the potential for energy recovery, in the form of methane production, and lower sludge volumes relative to aerobic treatment processes. Furthermore, when two substrates are codigested (i.e. digested together), added benefits are foreseeable, such as increased methane ...

  • Anaerobic Co-Digestion of a Single Source Oily Waste and High Strength Pet Food Wastewater: A Study of Failure and Revival of a Full Scale Digester

    ABSTRACTThis paper focuses on the revival of a formerly failed digester of 1800 m3 volume. The most obvious cause of failure was identified to be due to capping caused by foam and scum, as result of attempting to treat oil rich, high strength wastewater. The revival was affected by implementing co-digestion in a 3-step remedial procedure. Though in the typical sense, codigestion involves separate ...

  • Microbe Edition: FOG How In-Pipe Technology Works

    Fats are esters of fatty acids and glycerol which are normally solid at room temperature. Oils are esters of fatty acids and glycerol which are normally liquid at room temperature. Grease is a general term used to describe a soft or melted animal fat or a lubricant (Campbell, 1999). Collectively they are referred to as fats, oils, and grease (FOG). The degradation of FOG that collects within the ...

  • Composting of petroleum contaminated soil case study

    Soils contaminated with hydrocarbons are generated during oil and gas production. Remediation by land treatment is a popular, inexpensive option however, in cold climates temperature limits the time available for treatment each year. Companies would prefer an economical, low maintenance treatment alternative which could operate throughout the year in cold climates. Environmental BioTechnologies, ...

  • Car Washing Efficiently: Carlovers Carwash Limited

     Background Since 1988, CarLovers Carwash Limited has operated a network of automatic and self-serve carwash facilities throughout Australia. CarLovers currently has 87 carwash outlets operating in Australia. Pre-existing Process Previous car wash facilities discharged all their wash water to sewer and did not reuse the wash water. ...


  • Data Requirements for Ground Water, Surface Water, and Leachate

    It is common for ground water to be contaminated with the water soluble substances found in overlying soils. Many of the required data elements are similar, e.g., pH, TOC, BOD, COD, oil and grease, contaminant identification and quantification, and soil and aquifer characterization. Additional water quality monitoring data elements include hardness, ammonia, total dissolved solids, and metals ...

  • System for bioremediation of effluents

    Executive Summary The remediation process of commercial, municipal, industrial and agricultural wastewaters has employed combinations of sulfuric acid, caustic, petroleum based solvents and synthetic emulsifiers, which are either toxic or generally non-biodegradable. An alternate method using naturally occurring microorganisms has been utilized for many years to facilitate the remediation ...

  • Data Requirements for Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    Site soil conditions frequently limit the selection of a treatment process. Process-limiting characteristics such as pH or moisture content may sometimes be adjusted. In other cases, a treatment technology may be eliminated based upon the soil classification (e.g., particle-size distribution) or other soil characteristics. Soils are inherently variable in their physical and chemical ...

  • Auto mechanics find new way to save the environment and money

    Some mechanics have reported a 50% savings in cleaning time by turning to an ultrasonic parts cleaning machine while taking advantage of an ecologically safe alternative to manual cleaning with toxic chemicals. With today's industrial sized ultrasonic cleaners, the speed of ultrasonic cleaning to remove soils is combined with the capacity to clean multiple parts at once. Let's take a look at some ...

  • Microbiology: The Key to Wastewater treatment case study

    The biological treatment of wastewater relies mainly on a consortium of heterotrophic and autotrophic bacteria. The fecal bacteria that are constantly introduced into the collection system are not the optimal bacteria for degrading the contaminants present in wastewaters. The soil bacteria that are introduced through inflow and infiltration are more effective at degrading the wastes and can ...
