Fat, oil and grease (FOG) can clog wastewater collection and treatment systems, septic tanks and holding tanks causing sewage spills, manhole overflows. property damage, environmental problems, and health hazards. Typically, animal and vegetable based oil and grease, generated by restaurants and fast-food outlets that do not have adequate grease control measures in place, are the main contributors to these problems.

When fats, oil, and grease is washed into the plumbing system, through kitchen sinks and floor drains, it sticks to the inside of sewer pipes.  Over time, the FOG builds up and eventually blocks the entire pipe, causing sewage backups and overflows.

Brown grease is floatable fat, oil, grease and settled solids recovered from grease control devices. Typically, brown grease is not reusable  and is generally disposed of thru  wastewater treatment facilities. Yellow grease is  fat, oil, and greas that is not contaminated. Yellow grease is also referred to as recyclable FOG.

Detergents, that claim to dissolve grease,  simply move pass grease down the pipe and create a larger problem downstream.

EC-220 sewage and lagoon treatment is formulated for use in  treating wastewater containing high levels of grease, fats and oil. EC-220 loosens, liquefies and degrades heavy grease deposits. It is effective in degrading extra cellular polymers, which cause foaming, and suppressing the growth of the filamentous organisms by affecting the structure of the filaments.

EC-220 IS FAST ACTING AND RESIDUAL!

SAFETY
The materials used in the production of EC-220 are derived from naturally occurring and sustainable sources. EC-220 is 100% biodegradable, environmentally friendly and is not harmful to animals, plants and humans.

COMPLIANCE
Fully complies with EPA Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA) and the rules, orders and regulations promulgated there under including:
a) Sections 4, 5, 6 & 7; Title 40 Chapter 1, 707.20 thru 707.75;
b) 40 CFR Sections 704.3. 710.2(e) and 720.3(c); and
c) Sections 5 and 13, reference 42FR64583
d) Does not contain marine pollutants as defined in 49 CFR 171.8.

CASE HISTORY
1500 cubic feet of grease had accumulated in the scum pit and 35 cubic feet was being added each week. Disposal involved manual removal for transporting to a landfill. A month after adding EC-220, operators began to notice subtle improvements in floc formation and in the biological community as a whole. The 1500 cubic feet of grease was degraded in two months.
