FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) Removal Equipment Market: Introduction

FOG stands for Fat, Oil & Grease, which are the byproducts of food, chemical, pharmaceutical and various other industrial processing systems. FOG removal is important to prevent sewage blockages, which can further result in environmental pollution. FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment is used as a primary wastewater treating mechanism wherein the wastewater from kitchens or material processing industries, where fats, oils & greases are unwanted byproducts, is treated before letting the wastewater out to sewage. The mechanism works on the principle of buoyancy and relative coefficients of expansion of water and oil. Typical FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment consists of a tank with 2 or more separations, inlet, outlet and two way access from the top. The wastewater is made to flow through the inlet into the FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment’s tank after going through some heat treatment. The FOG elements in the heated wastewater liquefy and float over the stream. When the wastewater enters the tank, the solid particles settle to the floor and FOG are separated from the water in alternate compartments. The water thus obtained is drained out from the outlet.

FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment are available in various sizes and construction formats. They range from 5 Liters to more than 30,000 Liters and can be made of metal, plastic or cement as per the requirement. FOG interceptors are essential to regulate the clogging of sewage systems. Non-removal of FOG from wastewater might result in costly maintenance of sewage pipelines and hefty fees from county and landfill management units. Therefore, FOG pretreatment is a necessary affair for any restaurant, hospital, cosmetic factory or any unit that uses animal & vegetable fats for processing purposes. A good number of FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment are available in the market at competitive prices. However, as the equipment requires regular maintenance, a need for improvisation in this regard can facilitate higher sales numbers by promising better results with lower maintenance expenditures.

FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) Removal Equipment Market: Market Dynamics

FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment finds widespread use in hotels, hospitals and cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries where fat, oil & grease are inevitable wastes produced along with the main products. With growing environmental concerns and strict regulations from government authorities, it is mandatory for every industry to pretreat wastewater before releasing into sewage. This has assisted the growth of the FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment market and can be considered as the key market driver. The growing demand for food processing and cosmetics industries has fueled the FOG interceptors market and many environmental agencies have come up with awards and recognitions for best sewage treatments, which has encouraged business owners to implement the technology in their hotels or plants. This has been seen as a new trend in the market for FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment.

Overall, the market seems to be favourable due to various food processing, chemical and cosmetic industries coming up in various parts of the world. With the growing demand for pharmaceuticals and paints, the scope for the FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment market is expected to constantly expand in the coming years. The only restraint seen in this market is its high initial and operating costs. The system uses electricity and requires qualified professionals to clean the tank at least once a week. This is a hindrance; however, since the system is a mandate with any animal and vegetable processing industry, this is not expected to affect the market. In fact, this hindrance can prove to be an opportunity for existing and new players in the market to come up with a system that doesn’t call for regular maintenance.
