1. Grease trap treatment using bioculture

Dear Mr. Pancholi,

Yes grease traps are considered very troublesome. Due to the presence of fatty and organic acids the pH drops, making the conditions acidic and difficult for any bacteria to survive. The scum layer formed on the top also prevents any air from mixing on surface making conditions below it anaerobic. This causes mal-odor in addition to persistant acidic conditions.

We use bacterial slow release tablets that degrade oil and grease. I would like to differ and state that oil and grease, hydrocarbon and surfactants are considered biodegradable by selected bacteria. The tablets are used for the first time after cleaning of the grease trap, this allows a concentration of microbes in the system before it gets bad. These microbes are facultative in nature and are at very higher concentration than indigenous and are selected organisms which are not present in indigenous. Skimming may be done but gradually you'll see the frequency reduces. The skimmed material may be put in the sludge drying bed of STP/ETP.

The usage of these microbial products keeps grease traps free of odor, reduced scum and thus lesser load on STP/ETP.
