FOG Recovery for Profit - Best Practices for Municipal and Industrial WWTPs (WWETT Show 2023)

March 23, 2023

The renewable diesel industry has created a new market for recovered FOG, providing new revenue opportunities for industrial and municipal processors who handle this traditionally problematic waste. This session will cover the challenges and current best practices for handling concentrated fats, oils, and greases (FOG) at municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants (WWTP).  This session will review best practices for receiving, handling and recovering saleable products from grease trap waste at the WWTP, and how a well implemented processing program can support collection and pretreatment in successfully implementing a comprehensive fats, oils and grease (FOG) control program to prevent the discharge of FOG into the sewer system.

2. Explore different methods of FOG receiving and treatment

3. Review economic opportunities for FOG receiving and processing
