London Grease Traps Fighting Fatbergs

Fatbergs are a well-documented occurrence around the UK and indeed the world. Fatbergs are known to form in areas of the country with a higher concentration of people. This is typically larger cities where there are more restaurants, cafes, attractions and a general higher population of people in a single place. The capital city is one of the major areas susceptible to fatbergs, the resturants and foodservice establishments cited as being one of the main contributers. In fact it has been widely reported that nine out of 10 did not have adequate systems for keeping waste out of sewers according to the BBC in a report from 2017.

Fatbergs are comprised of large masses of fat, oil and grease (FOG) that are washed into the sewer systems typically from foodservice and catering businesses and also from residential homes. This on its own wouldn’t pose as much of a threat however when this is combined with other debris which makes its way into the sewer through unresponsible flushing of items such as wet wipes, cotton buds, sanitary products and contraception, giant blockages occur.

Many businesses are now waking up to the importance of employing suitable grease management solutions, especially in these fatberg hotspots however there are still some who seem to be neglecting the issues. Following educational messages from water authorities around the UK that highlight the environmental impact and responsibility that businesses have in relation to grease management, including initiatives by Thames Water grease traps are now a more widely acknowledged element for environmental repair.
