Marriott Hotel’s Chief Engineer at Manchester Airport, Graham Shrubsole, said about ecobug® kitchen grease degrader GDII…

“the product does what it is supposed to do, but also there is no other maintenance or service requirement on site other than to fit the box of ‘bugs’ per year. Other solutions to FOG dosing require monitoring and changing 5 litre containers mainly weekly, but this solution is idiot proof!”

Heathrow chooses ecobug® urinal caps

Passengers passing through Terminal 1 at Lond’s Heathrow Airport will have a pleasant surprise in the Gentlemens’ toilets. ecobug® caps are at work in the urinals. The fresh smell in there isn’t masking the usual odours. It really is clean.

15 ton lump of fat removed from London sewer

Like a scene out of Ghostbusters, the sickening images of the oozing, putrid grease blocking London’s sewers made even those with the strongest stomachs queasy.

The stinking mass of lard and much worse, highlights Britain’s love of cooking oil – and how we think nothing of throwing it down our sinks.

Now the double-decker sized blockage is getting worse, after experts discovered three tonnes had been added to the mass since its discovery last month.

Fatberg: The mass of lard and other household waste has grown by a huge three tonnes since its discovery in the sewers of London

The blockage was so critical at one point it threatened to blast the covers off manholes in Kingston with raw sewage

‘We’ve spent a lot of time drawing attention to the dangers of putting fat down the drain, so I can’t imagine where these huge amounts are coming from.’ The repair bills to fix problems caused by fat blockages in London have now reached £1million

Mr Hailwood adds: ‘We need everyone to treat these sewers better. And that means one thing: Bin it – don’t block it.’

This issue is nothing new, but in the late Nineties, Thames Water spent £2 million a year removing fat from its network – that figure bulged to £12million in 2012.

It’s not only disgarded cooking oil which is adding to the current batch of Fatbergs, a 15 per cent annual rise in wet wipes has also been blamed – a product our Victorian sewers cannot deal with.

Simon Evans, a Thames Water spokesman, said: ‘We are seeing an increasing trend across Britain of people using wet-wipes instead of loo roll. Goodness knows why.

Residents alerted engineers to the ‘fatberg’ after they complained of not being able to flush their toilets.

‘Our sewers are designed to take human waste and loo roll, and nothing else.

‘When a wipe goes down, it doesn’t break down. Manufacturers say they do eventually, but that’s in a landfill site. In contrast, loo roll breaks down in seconds.

‘No moistened wipe has to come on the market that is acceptable to sewers.’
