The Essential Guide to FOG Control: Solutions for Municipal Cities and Industrial Clients

Fats, oils, and grease (FOG) control is a critical issue faced by municipal cities and industrial facilities worldwide.


In this educational blog post, we'll explore the importance of FOG control, the environmental implications of neglecting it, and how In-Pipe Technology's innovative solutions can help prevent FOG buildup before it becomes a problem.



Understanding FOG Control

FOG control involves managing the disposal of fats, oils, and grease to prevent their accumulation in sewer systems and wastewater treatment facilities. Municipal cities and industrial clients deal with FOG control on a daily basis, whether it's from food service establishments, manufacturing processes, or domestic sources.


The Importance of FOG Control Measures

Effective FOG control is essential for maintaining the integrity and efficiency of sewer systems and wastewater treatment plants. Without proper management, FOG (fats, oils, and grease) can accumulate in pipes, causing blockages, backups, and overflows, also know as sanitary Sewer overflow (SSO).


These incidents not only disrupt operations and pose health risks but also result in costly repairs and cleanup efforts for municipalities and industrial facilities.


Environmental Implications of Neglecting FOG Control

The environmental implications of neglecting FOG control are significant and far-reaching. FOG buildup in sewer systems can lead to sewer overflows, releasing untreated sewage into water bodies and causing pollution.


This contamination can harm aquatic ecosystems, degrade water quality, and pose risks to human health and wildlife.


In-Pipe Technology's Solution for FOG Control

In-Pipe Technology offers innovative solutions for FOG control that target the root causes of FOG buildup before it becomes a problem. Our patented technology and engineered solutions treat wastewater upstream in the sewer system, closer to the source, where FOG accumulates.


By introducing specialized microbes that metabolize FOG compounds, we prevent solidification and blockages, ensuring clear and flowing pipes without the need for harsh chemicals or invasive interventions.
