Even though soap breaks up grease, it loses its effectiveness downstream, allowing grease to solidify on the pipe walls.

One European project found that it was possible to collect 2.5 litres of FOG per household per month [recoilproject.eu]

“Fatbergs” – a term that has been coined over the past decade or so to describe large conglomerations of fat, oil and grease (FOG).

It is estimated that 25% of municipal sewage treatment costs can be attributed to the FOG component (Curran, 2015)
