EnviroDEFENSE® FOG Degrader is a powdered product for use in wastewater systems and grease traps.

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. As the lipase enzymes get to work free fatty acids are released, which reduces the pH, creating a harsh environment for bacteria. The strains in EnviroDEFENSE® FOG Degrader are specially selected to work effectively in lower pH ranges found in grease traps and grease interceptors. They have been shown to break down a wide range of materials found in grease traps and grease interceptors:

- vegetable, soy, canola and olive oil
- solid fats such as lard, beef tallow and butter
- starch, proteins and cellulose

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 Degrader is developed for grease traps, associated drain lines and fat problems in water treatment plants.

PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS: In addition to select strains of bacteria, EnviroDEFENSE® FOG Degrader 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.
