We are less than a month away from WEFTEC®! Taking place Sept. 23-25 at McCormick Place in Chicago, you can find the Greasezilla team at Corner Booth #4952.

WEFTEC is the largest conference of its kind in North America and offers water quality professionals from around the world with the best education and training available today. It provides unparalleled access to the most cutting-edge technologies in the field; serves as a forum for domestic and international business opportunities; and promotes invaluable peer-to-peer networking among registrants.

In this blog post, we will give you a brief preview of what to expect at Greasezilla’s booth (#4952).

Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) are Disrupting Water Quality

FOG (an acronym for fats, oils and grease) is a major issue for cities, states and the environment; however, it is not normally at the forefront of conversations about pollution. The problem with FOG pollution is that action isn’t taken until too late—it accumulates in sewer pipes and waterways slowly and steadily over time before it is deemed problematic. A shocking three-quarters of the sewage collection infrastructure in the U.S. is so clogged or damaged by brown grease that they work at half capacity, causing 40,000 sewage spills per year.

According to the Wall Street Journal, local governments spend $25 billion each year to remediate grease-related issues and keep the sewers flowing. That’s a huge amount of taxpayer money to clean and combat FOG. That’s where we can help.

Discover Greasezilla’s Innovative Solution Firsthand

It’s simple and proactive. Rather than waiting to treat the problem after infrastructure is clogged or damaged, Greasezilla™ is placed upstream of wastewater treatment plants. This allows the system to remove brown grease from collected FOG waste without additives or dewatering; leaves little to be further processed; and has a total operating expense of 1- 2 cents per gallon. Wastewater Treatment Plants can rest assure that their infrastructure is protected by knowing where FOG is going in the community.

And get this, our patented technology burns only a small fraction of the same fuel it generates. By removing water, debris and food waste, Greasezilla produces a rich biofuel which can be used as a substitute for Bunker #6 Fuel Oil. By running entirely on the biofuel it harvests from grease trap waste, Greasezilla eliminates fuel costs while using zero fossil fuels – making it the most cost-efficient and ecologically responsible brown grease separator available that can significantly lower disposal costs while generating revenue.
