FOG is a costly problem our technology can manage - sustainably and profitably.
In the US, almost half of all sewer blockages are caused by FOG. Blockages can cause sanitary sewer overflows, which discharge sewage into the environment without treatment. Such fatty-oriented blockages cause sewers to perform well below capacity, demanding a costly and perpetual response. All in all, these blockages result in mandatory repairs that exceed $25 billion annually in the US, and exponentially more worldwide.
TOTAL FOG SOLUTIONS®
Over the past 14 years, we have developed solutions that help municipalities successfully manage the myriad of challenges brought about by FOG in their sewer systems and wastewater treatment plants. Considering the origins of our company were founded at the University of Connecticut, our solutions incorporate educational programming to raise both awareness and compliance among the food-service establishments municipalities serve. Our exhaustive research on the conversion of FOG to B100 biodiesel has led to breakthrough developments in technology that we have commercialized to benefit municipalities and operators around the world.
Our approach to managing FOG enables municipalities the opportunity to address the environmental-stewardship and decarbonization mandates that have become central to public policy. By utilizing this waste stream as feedstock for the onsite production of biodiesel, municipalities can eliminate the economic and environmental costs associated with FOG disposal.
From FOG Receiving Facilities to Grease Recovery Units to FOG-To-Biodiesel systems, we have developed a comprehensive solution for municipalities and wastewater treatment plant operators that addresses FOG management in an effective and profitable manner.
Our technology is scalable to address even the largest of municipal and industrial use cases. It offers a proprietary continuous flow design for continual production of biodiesel from a multitude of virgin (yellow grease) and non-virgin (brown grease) feedstocks, expanding opportunities for municipalities to create new revenue streams and reduce O&M costs.
Awareness & Education
As engineers, we would be remiss if we didn’t identify the source of FOG-related problems – and consequently, design a solution to address it. To that end, we’ve developed educational programming that we offer free-of-charge to municipalities, so they can effectively launch campaigns to raise both awareness and compliance among the residents and food-service establishments they serve.
