It is estimated that 23-28% of Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) are due to Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG). With significant growth in the commercial food sector on top of other high FOG producing industries such as metal processors, meat packers, cosmetic manufacturers and industrial laundry establishments, the need for publicly owned treatment plants (POTWs) and industries to regulate and monitor FOG is crucial to public health. Besides clogged sewer lines, high FOG levels also disrupt the effective operation of a wastewater treatment plant. An important feature of any FOG program is locating and monitoring high oil and grease producing industries and food service establishments. InfraCal TOG/TPH Analyzers provide a simplified procedure for FOG analysis based on solvent extraction and infrared absorption which can give the regulator or operator an on-site result in less than 10 minutes.

Measurement of Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) in waste water is a crucial parameter in water quality control and environmental monitoring performed by water suppliers’ laboratories and environmental authorities; the contamination builds up in the sewerage system and will eventually lead to blockages. Typically the waste water is analysed by first passing a large volume through a filter then selectively determining the grease build-up on the dried filter by an analytical method.

Industrial and municipal waste contaminated with fat – a frequent problem for companies maintaining wastewater network infrastructure and municipal wastewater treatment facilities. We recommend the use of GREASOLUX fat dissolvent cartridges to avoid the problems of pipeline chocking, equipment damage, offensive odors, formation of filamentous bacteria, poor wastewater treatment results, poor sedimental properties of activated sludge. GREASOLUX – is a cartridge that slowly dissolves in water, enriched with special fat dissolvent microorganisms and enzymes. GREASOLUX – is an especially efficient product for low cost solutions to problems caused by fat: only few strategically placed cartridges will remove or minimize the problems caused by fat.

Whether a collection system is handling domestic, commercial, or industrial waste; grease accumulation causes problems in wet wells, lift stations and pipelines. Problems with grease include interference with wet well level controls, reduced wet well capacity, plugging of pipes and pumps, and unsafe working conditions.

Enhanced anaerobic biodegradation is the practice of adding hydrogen (an electron donor) to groundwater and/or soil to increase the number and vitality of indigenous microorganisms performing anaerobic bioremediation (reductive dechlorination) on any anaerobically degradable compound or chlorinated contaminant. The most commonly targeted chlorinated groundwater contaminants are primarily used in industry as degreasing agents and include: Perchloroethylene (PCE), Trichloroethylene (TCE), Dichloroethylene (DCE), Vinyl Chloride (VC).
Other anaerobically degradable compounds include: carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, methylene chloride, certain pesticides/herbicides, perchlorate, nitrate, nitroaromatic explosives (TNT, RDX), dyes and chlorofluorocarbons (CFC’s).
