Even if FOG is properly collected, disposal is still a problem. Grease Trap Waste (GTW) is typically transported to and dumped/tipped at receiving stations located at a relatively few municipal sewage (POTW) or commercial wastewater treatment plants where haulers pay fees of $.05-$.30/gallon (US Data). Traditional methods of treatment and disposal include dewatering, drying, composting, land application, incineration, and landfilling.
All these methods are cost additive and do nothing to capture the rich energy resources that are available in the waste, nor do they reduce CO2 or methane emissions as FOG decomposes. Only Greasezilla® “Gets the Grease Out” and produces a marketable biofuel and headworks-ready effluent water easily handled by treatment plants.
