Fats oils and greases, known as FOGs, from the waste water industry solidify in the sewerage network, block wet wells and accumulate at waste water treatment works.
FOGs cause flooding and pollution incidents and are estimated to cost the water industry over £15million each year. This problematic waste stream is degraded and typically high in contamination. Argent Energy works with companies to remove FOG and process it through unique technology to remove contamination and produce a clean oil suitable for the production of biodiesel.
Argent Energy recently featured on the BBC’s ‘ The Watermen’ removing fat from the inlet of a waste water treatment works. You can see the video here.
