FOG (Fat, Oil, Grease) as Fuel
Sewer blockages are epidemic in the UK, 70% of them caused by fat, oil and grease (FOG) and the problem is getting worse. Food outlets now have access to smart ways of disposing of FOG safely with technology and monitoring providing better ways to manage the process. Kingspan wants to advance the debate around changing societal perception of FOG, from waste product to fuel, and encourage greater use of it in bio-diesel.
