First Choice Catering Spares is promising to wipe out FOG (fats, oils and grease) from commercial kitchen drains with an automatic biological system known as Greaseblast from Environmental Biotech.
The company says that FOG accounts for over 100,000 sewers are blocked each year in the UK; costing commercial kitchens time and money for support call-outs.
GreaseBlast uses a battery of non-toxic vegetative micro-organisms which are automatically dispensed directly into the drain line where they start consuming the fat, turning it into water and carbon dioxide; a process known as bioremediation.
John Whitehouse, co-founder and director of First Choice Catering Spares, suggests the solution should be a simple sale for kitchen installers and maintenance firms. “We understand the expensive and time consuming issues FOG can cause and are confident in its ability to provide our customers with consistent and effective results. GreaseBlast is an environmentally friendly way of maintaining free-flowing drain lines, which we know is paramount, especially considering the health and safety risks blocked drains can cause not to mention the untold damage to the environment.”
Aziz Tejpar, managing director of Environmental Biotech, adds: “The reason our formula is so effective is that over 20 years’ research has gone into developing highly powerful multi-strained micro-organisms that are literally at work 24/7. They produce a live colony in the drainage system so as the waste is released the bacteria consume it on contact.”
