School grease trap treatment

The Academic community has always been committed in developing new techniques in making learning easier and faster for everyone. Various centers for education make sure that they are updated with the latest trends in teaching and learning. Each student is different from one another and each educator is different from one another. The student and the teacher should match if a certain subject is to be mastered. The school also has to match the needs of the students and the teachers if they are to be at their maximum levels of learning and teaching. The administrator should make sure that the teachers are paid well and are provided with the needed resources to help them with their lessons. This includes references, audio/video materials, field trips, in-house activities, sustenance, and an orderly environment. Part of having things in order is to maintain a clean place of study. This is why every school has maintenance and utility departments, to take good care of the facilities and the school grounds and also the school cafeteria. A clean school is a school fit for studying and personal development. With that being said we will cover the pros and cons of using School Grease Trap Treatment.

The school cafeteria is a vital part of the school system. It is where everyone acquires food as a source of their energy for every activity that they engage in. More students and employees mean more food to be prepared every single day. This also means that there will be more FOG (fats, oils, grease) produced. At present, FOG is becoming a real issue in the United States. The FOG crisis as it is called, is all about FOG overflowing into the untreated effluent that comes from institutions, companies, or establishments involved in producing meals or food items. The school system is one of those that produce grease in large amounts, enough to cause effluent backups on a regular basis. Because of this, the US government has created a grease ordinance that requires the different schools to install grease traps in their premises. The ordinance mandates them to have permits for the grease traps and to have regular maintenance for them.

School cafeterias produce mostly fatty and sugary foods. This means that there are lots of greasy leftovers by the end of each meal. The overproduction of grease results to an overflow of FOG. When FOG overflow happens, the untreated wastewater is contaminated by the grease materials from the grease trap. The FOG cools and hardens within the sewer pipes and then adheres to its inner walls. This makes the wastewater back up into the school premises, resulting to health, sanitation, and environmental problems. If the amount of FOG in the wastewater goes beyond the set limit allowed, the school will pay a hefty fine and will eventually face lawsuits if the administration doesn’t do anything about what’s happening.

School grease trap treatment is necessary to correct the FOG overflow in the school’s grease trap system. The massive amounts of grease should be immediately removed from the grease trap. After that, the trap should be thoroughly cleaned. The pumped out gunk should be properly disposed of by a licensed hauler. It would definitely help a lot if the correct additive will be used in school grease trap treatment. Chemicals should never be used on . These compounds only emulsify the FOG and effluent backup happens all over again. Instead of wasting money on chemicals, you should invest on bacteria based additives.

Bacteria use in school grease trap treatment will be very beneficial to the trap, to the school population, to the administration, and the environment. These organisms will quickly eradicate the FOG and solid wastes, ridding the grease trap of foul smells as well. There will be no health and sanitation issues anymore. Plus, the environment stays safe from pollution because bacteria are all-natural and organic. They do not contain chemical discharges that will pollute the surrounding living systems and the clean water supply.
