  • How To Handle Chemical Spills & Cleanups

    FAST-ACT is designed for liquid and vapor chemical releases, but the chemicals it attacks does not need to be limited to what we traditionally think of as a chemical spill. Toxic and noxious chemicals can come from a variety of sources such as waste water, decomposition, household chemicals, and animals. Since FAST-ACT can be applied to liquid spill or vapor release enabling Emergency Responders ...

  • Fat, oil and grease waste from municipal wastewater: characterization, activation and sustainable conversion into biofuel

    Fat, oil and grease (FOG) recovered by the oil/water separator of a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) were sampled, characterized, activated and converted into biofuel. Free acids (50–55%) and fatty soaps (26–32%) not only composed the main components, but they were also easily separable from the starting waste. The respective free fatty acid profiles were ...

  • 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 ...

  • Profile: Factors that influence properties of FOG deposits and their formation in sewer collection systems

    The quantification of the factors that may affect the formation of the fat, oil, and grease (FOG) deposits and their chemical and rheological properties were predominantly covered in the paper. The factors included the types of fats used in food service establishments (FSEs) and the types of calcium sources and environmental conditions (i.e. pH and temperature) in sewer systems. These factors are ...

  • Solvent choices for infrared testing of oil and grease in water

    Water is a very strong absorber in the mi d infrared (I R) regio n where o il is measured. We see the effect of infrared absorbance when a cold bucket of water left in the sun is quite warm by afternoon due to the absorption of infrared energy as heat. When measuring part per million (ppm) oil levels with mid IR, the water absorbs so much of the infrared energy that the signal becomes saturated ...

  • Understanding the spatial formation and accumulation of fats, oils and grease deposits in the sewer collection system

    Sanitary sewer overflows are caused by the accumulation of insoluble calcium salts of fatty acids, which are formed by the reaction between fats, oils and grease (FOG) and calcium found in wastewaters. Different sewer structural configurations (i.e., manholes, pipes, wet wells), which vary spatially, along with other obstructions (roots intrusion) and pipe deformations (pipe sags), may influence ...

  • 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 ...
