One of the biggest makers of grease traps for commercial kitchens is celebrating after landing two industry awards in the space of a week.
County Down-based Environmental Products & Services (EPAS) manufactures the GreaseShield range of FOG management solutions, which was named the ‘Best Responsible Product/Service’ in the waste management category of the Green Hospitality Awards 2014.
And this week it received the news that the same piece of kit had been awarded the top prize in the ‘Product Innovation and Sustainability’’ category of the Hostelco Awards in Barcelona.
The latest wins mean the company has now bagged an impressive 16 international awards inside the last seven years.
GreaseShield is a range of fully-automated mechanical GreaseShields, which separate and remove food solids and fats, oils and greases.
The equipment prevents blockages in drains and protecting pumping stations while significantly reducing the loading on waste water treatment plants.
