FOG – New Times, new solutions

FOG – New Times, new solutions             

We are delighted to announce the conference Fat, Oil and Grease (FOG) – New times, new solutions.
This one-day conference and workshops sessions will take place at Cranfield University on the 17th of September 2015.

Research is being carried out to identify the nature of Fat, Oil and Grease (FOG) formation from food service establishments and help tackle the problem of network blockages. As awareness on the FOG problem from food service establishments  has increased, further action is needed over the next few years to reduce the problem of FOG getting into drains and sewers. It is now time to expect producers and users of FOG ‘solutions’ to take responsibility for their products and have a proper assessment of their ‘in service’ performance. At the same time it is pivotal to understand how much we need to keep out of the sewers, and what are the satisfactory levels of FOG removal. Some countries are using 100mg/L as the maximum FOG content allowed in the sewers. New solutions are also being developed and being implemented in terms of blockage identification and reuse of FOG.

The targeted audience of this event are water companies; food service operators; kitchen designers and installers; solution providers; environmental health officers, regulators, researchers and equipment manufacturers and service providers.
