Put Grease into Sustainable Biofuel, Not Sewer Drains

Improper disposal of waste cooking oil is a major problem throughout the industrialized world. The consequences of which were on display this September in east London, when city sewers became clogged by a mammoth grease blockage that was an incredible 820 feet long and weighed 130 tons. Crews worked seven days a week to chip away at the accumulated grease, which had mixed with other sewage materials to form a dense mass the consistency of concrete.

“It’s frustrating, as these situations are totally avoidable and caused by fat, oil and grease being washed down [drains],” said Matt Rimmer, Thames Water’s head of waste networks.  

Nearly half of all sewer blockages in the United States are caused by improper disposal of cooking oil. Each year local governments spend millions of dollars on repairs to undo the damage. Even blockages that don’t make it into the wider system can harm a building’s pipes and cost thousands to remedy.

Cooking oil also has devastating effects on the environment if it reaches lakes and streams. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency treats it just like petroleum, citing the toxic potential.
