FOG Wastewater Treatment

Fatty organic materials from animals, vegetables, and petroleum are not quickly broken down by bacteria. This Fat, Oil, and Grease (FOG) can cause pollution in receiving environments. When large amounts of oils and greases are discharged to receiving waters from community systems, they increase Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) and they may float to the surface and harden, causing aesthetically unpleasing conditions. They also can trap trash, plants, and other materials, causing foul odors, attracting flies and mosquitoes and other disease vectors. In some cases, too much oil and grease causes septic conditions in ponds and lakes by preventing oxygen from the atmosphere from reaching the water.

Waste Oils:

Petroleum-based waste oils used for motors and industry are considered hazardous waste and should be collected and disposed of separately from wastewater.

ALAR’s technology significantly reduces FOG for discharge into the sewer.
