The Benefits of the EcoPlus System

Your Solutions Through Our Technology and Products:

EcoPlus markets the processing technology (U.S. Patent No. 7,384,562) and associated process facilities to municipalities and regional utility authorities as part of a turnkey package for processing oil and grease into a value added product. This is an alternative to disposal options in increasingly short supply landfill space, or to the increasing reluctance of wastewater treatment operators to accept the raw oils and grease.
This disposal problem is due to associated handling problems in the first instance, and in the second instance, the very high associated maintenance and repair costs attributable to treating the material. The EcoPlus process-technology easily converts the sticky oils and grease, along with associated food materials, to a solid, granular material and water. The solids may be used as a soil amending agent in agricultural applications, but more importantly, the solids have green fuel value, with Btu values on the order of those of coal (5,000 to 11,000+ BTUs per pound, depending on contained moisture).

The interests of managers in FOG issues depend on the individual’s sphere of responsibilities. So select your general viewpoint, whether City, County, or Agency Manager or Director; Engineer or Consultant in wastewater issues; a Wastewater Plant Operator; or a Regulator and see more about how we can benefit your situation.

Current Practices

In the past few years there has been tremendous growth in the number of restaurants in the United States (now over 925,000 operations with $511 billion in sales according to the National Restaurant Association in 2006); a consequence of the trend for Americans to eat out of the home more frequently every year. The growing numbers of food service establishments produce increasing amounts of a specific grease product—Brown Grease (an exceptionally sticky and difficult to manage waste) collected in restaurant grease interceptors or grease traps (collection devices in a commercial kitchen’s plumbing system).
The volume of this material and its impacts has triggered increasing regulation with respect to restaurants and other FOG generators—and to FOG haulers—the latter being the service-sector operators that collect this type of waste and dispose of it.

However, because of the huge negative operational impacts of FOG within the plants, many local treatment plants are refusing to accept grease completely or have drastically reduced intake of the grease being offered for disposal. This is forcing haulers to discharge their loads at increasingly more distant facilities, increasing disposal costs dramatically.

The resistance of restaurants and other grease generators to accept the pass-through of higher costs has caused some haulers to seek alternative ways to discharge. In some cases the alternative is decidedly illegal.
Discharge of waste into storm drains, fields, sewers, and estuaries has become an issue for Regulators, and impacts City, County, and Agency Managers and Directors; Engineers or Consultants in wastewater issues; Wastewater Plant Operators; and those haulers who are looking to do what’s right and yet remain solvent.
