Situation

Heavy FOG build up, blockages, odour

Challenges

24/7 operation, expensive maintenance, frequent call-outs

Background

If not maintained correctly, grease traps are a hazard. FOG (fats, oils and grease) will build-up and cause blockages which can prove very expensive. Most kitchen use enzymes, which are banned in USA, Canada, Germany, France etc. Enzymes only ‘soften’ the FOG so that it can be washed further downstream to re-congeal elsewhere.

Eco Tab bacterial treatments digest (eat) FOG as it is a food source. Continued treatment of Eco Tabs will eliminate FOG and save kitchens considerable sums in terms of costs and risks.

Solution

Eco-tabs are excited to report that the results of the proof of concept trial period with McDonalds already show a noticeable improvement in FOG levels. It has eradicated problems with unpleasant odour to the area surrounding the external grease trap and pump chamber.

The objectives were to reduce and eliminate the unwanted build-up of FOG within the grease trap and reduce the total costs of maintaining the grease trap, network and pipework. Additionally, the clients CSR policy states ‘Do No Harm’ to the environment, Eco-tabs have achieved this by eliminating the need for hazardous/toxic chemicals and vehicle movements, i.e. pump-out and jetting trucks.

A weekly dose of Eco Tab bacterial treatment eliminates the need for manual cleaning of grease trap, chambers, pipework, drains etc.… and avoids blockages

FAQs

Why are Eco Tabs better than my current products?

Chemicals, enzymatics, biocides, acids etc.… only liquidise and degrade FOG so that it can be washed downstream to re-congeal elsewhere within the network (i.e. Fatbergs). Globally, scientists now understand in detail the environmental damage caused by these products and many are now banned in advanced countries. Eco Tabs are unique and 100% environmentally friendly and 100% safe for all human, animal, avian, aquatic and wildlife.

Eco Tabs are a blend of specific non-pathogenic bacteria chosen to do a certain job, i.e. digest (eat) FOG. Once the bacteria have digested all the FOG, they die off (3-4 months) and are digested by the new bacteria. The byproducts of non-pathogenic bacteria are 95% water and 5% carbon dioxide.

Do Eco Tabs work out better value that my current products?

Compared to un-blocking & cleaning via high pressure jetting/tankering away the FOG for disposal, customers can expect to significantly reduce their costs dependent on flows, loads, outside hours operations etc.

Are there any other benefits of using Eco Tabs?

Each Eco Tab contains billions of dehydrated bacteria CFU. Every microbiologist will confirm that bacterial digestion is optimised in an aerated environment. Therefore, every Eco Tab contains sodium bicarbonate to deliver an oxygenated environment within the water column without the need for pumps, power etc.

Are there any negative side effects?

No. All Eco Tab products are 100% safe for the environment. PPE is not required.
