FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) Removal Equipment Market Detailed Analytical Overview by 2025


Global industry analysis

The FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment market has gained traction in recent years due to increasing awareness of environmental sustainability and the need to reduce FOG-related issues. FOG removal devices are designed to prevent FOG from entering and damaging sewage systems, thereby preserving water quality and reducing overflows.

FOG or fat, oil and grease are by-products of industrial processing systems used in the food, chemical, pharmaceutical and several other industries. In order to avoid wastewater backlogs, which can further contribute to environmental pollution, FOG removal is critical.

The wastewater from kitchens or industries that process materials in which fats, oils and greases are unwanted by-products is treated with FOG (Fat, Oil, and Grease) removal equipment before being discharged into the sewer.

The mechanism works on the principle of buoyancy and the relative coefficients of expansion of water and oil. A typical FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal system consists of a tank with 2 or more separations, inlet, outlet and two-way top access.

The waste water is sent through the inlet to the tank of the FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal plant after undergoing heat treatment. The FOG elements in the heated sewage liquify and float across the stream. As the wastewater enters the tank, the solid particles settle to the bottom and FOG is separated from the water in alternating chambers. The water thus obtained is discharged from the drain.

FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal devices are available in various sizes and designs. They range from 5 liters to more than 30,000 liters and can be made of metal, plastic or cement depending on the requirement. FOG separators are essential to control sewage system clogging.

Failure to remove FOG from wastewater can result in costly maintenance of sewer lines and high fees from county and landfill management units. Therefore, FOG pre-treatment is a necessary matter for any restaurant, hospital, cosmetics factory or any unit that uses animal and vegetable fats for processing purposes.

A large number of FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal devices are available on the market at competitive prices. However, since the devices require regular maintenance, a need for improvisation in this regard can enable higher sales by promising better results with less maintenance.

FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) Removal Devices Market: Market Dynamics

FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment is widely used in hotels, hospitals, cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries where grease, oil and grease are inevitable wastes produced along with the main products. With growing environmental concerns and strict regulations from government agencies, it is mandatory for every industry to pretreat wastewater before it is discharged into the sewer.

This has supported the growth of the FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) Removal Devices market and can be considered as the key market driver. Growing demand in the food processing and cosmetics industries has fueled the market for FOG scavengers, and many environmental agencies have presented awards and recognition for the best wastewater treatments, encouraging business owners to use the technology in their hotels or facilities. This was seen as a new trend in the FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) removal equipment market.

Overall, the market appears to be favorable as various food processing, chemical and cosmetics industries are springing up in different parts of the world. With the growing demand for pharmaceuticals and paints, the FOG (Fat, Oil & Grease) Removal Equipment market is expected to keep expanding in the coming years.

The only limitation in this market is the high acquisition and operating costs. The system uses electricity and requires qualified professionals to clean the tank at least once a week. This is an obstacle; However, as the system is a mandate for every livestock and vegetable processing industry, it is not expected to affect the market.

In fact, this obstacle can prove to be an opportunity for existing and new entrants to develop a system that does not require regular maintenance.
