The environmental impact of FOG above 30 mg / 1 in waste water streams can easily leads to the build-up of carcinogenic liquids and solids. An excess of organic nutrients causes oxygen depletion impacting the delicate balance required for aquatic micro-organism and upwards to fish, amphibians and other dependents.
Extreme cases become “dead water” caused by anaerobic conditions and extreme mortality to all water dwellers.
93% of all FOG enters the drainage system as a result of warewashing, clean-up and general kitchen sanitation
The accumulation taxes drain lines, pumping stations, sewer lines and water treatment plants.
Overflows from clogged pipelines and interceptors can easily overflow into sewer lines and even storm water drain lines that lead directly to water sources fouling streams, lakes, ponds, aquifers and groundwater. And animals, fish and plants that draw from polluted waters are at risk of toxic poisoning and other type of biologic contamination.
