We have a proven track record in reducing the number of problems your business will face in the future, exceeding compliance, saving you money, whilst protecting your reputation and boosting your corporate social responsibility by preserving the local environment.

Fat, oil and grease (FOG’s) cause major problems to the sewage and effluent system across the UK and Ireland. When they are disposed of down kitchen sinks or drains, they cause blockages. This causes a number of problems in wastewater treatment plants and pumping stations. If they are allowed to enter streams and rivers, they can cause damage to the environment and pollution incidents.

In most domestic settings, when cooking, you can reduce the amount of fats, oils and grease that you direct to your wastewater treatment plant or pumping station by collecting cooking oil and by applying other simple routine kitchen behaviour changes. However, in commercial kitchens and processing plants where up to 1000 meals per day are served regularly and grease/bi-products are discharged into the foul drainage system, a grease trap/separator installation is especially crucial.

It is vital that businesses take responsibility when it comes to the correct disposal of all FOG’s within their work area and premises. Grease traps or separators are used in the catering and food service industry to prevent a build-up of FOG's from solidifying and blocking drainage systems. They are used in a wide range of environments including, restaurants, cafes, schools and colleges, glamping sites, hotels and bars.

If businesses don’t have suitable measures in place to effectively manage FOG's, this can lead to large fines and prosecution, as well as closure. FOG’s can also cause damage to equipment, leading to expensive repairs and potential equipment downtime. It is highly recommended that a grease treatment system should be installed by catering establishments to assist and support the drainage system.

Viltra's range of bespoke grease traps are custom-built to suit the needs of your project, they provide an efficient and cost-effective solution to FOG's, ensuring your sewage or effluent treatment system or pumping station is operating to a high standard and, most importantly, your business is compliant with environment agency regulations. We also provide a comprehensive grease management consultancy service that aims to help businesses within the catering, food services, tourism and hospitality industries save time, money and unnecessary inconvenience by preventing future blockages in wastewater treatment systems, pipes and drains, ensuring compliance rates are met and exceeded.
