About Fats, Oils and Grease

The accumulation of Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) in a drainage system creates problems for commercial kitchens, food processing facilities and downstream infrastructure. FOG is generated from cooking processes and enters the drainage system via sinks, dishwashers and drainage outlets.

Untreated FOG has damaging effects on sewer infrastructure and wastewater treatment plants and downstream may cause surcharges and environmental watercourse pollution.

Pollution resulting from FOG is a major concern for water authorities and local councils in Australia and grease traps are a method of extracting FOG from wastewater. Water authorities and local councils require grease traps and interceptors to be installed in commercial kitchen and food processing facilities.
