Fats, Oils & Grease Degradation

Fats, Oils & Grease Degradation

EnviroDEFENSE™ FOG is a  multi-strain dry bacterial solution specifically formulated to degrade fats, oils and grease and other food waste in the demanding environments of drain lines, grease traps and grease interceptors.

Restaurants, hospitals, schools, and other institutions are prohibited from directly discharging grease into the city sewer system and must take precautions to prevent oil and grease from cooking operations entering the sewer lines.  Because of the regulations surrounding discharge, grease traps are essential to the operation of many businesses and organizations in a community.

Grease build ups are often the cause of slow drain and sewage back-ups as well as creating drain odors and even pest problems. EnviroDEFENSE™ FOG is developed specially for formulators to easily create highly effective biological products for grease traps, associated drain lines and also for fat problems in water treatment plants.

The bacterial consortium present in this product produces lipase enzymes which target large oil and grease molecules, breaking them down into smaller molecules that are then metabolized by the bacteria to quickly degrade the fat and reduce the risk of blockages.


In addition to select strains of bacteria, EnviroDEFENSE™ FOG contains the following enzymes for rapid degradation of waste:

  • Protease: Digestion of Protein.
  • Cellulase: Digestion of Cellulosic Particles.
  • Lipase: Digestion of Fats & Oils.

FOG Degrader Case Study

The images below show the degradation of fats, oils and greases by EnviroDEFENSE® FOG Degrader in a wet well from a packing house. In one month, EnviroDEFENSE® FOG Degrader removed more than 75% f the fats, oils and greases clogging the well and lines. Photo on the left shows the well before using Fog Degrader. The photo on the right shows the well one month after treatment.
