Bionetix International’s Eco-Trap is a grease trap treatment that contains special additives to loosen and liquefy heavy grease deposits, which speeds up degradation.

The treatment reduces fat, oil and grease (FOG) accumulation, biological oxygen demand (BOD), bad odours, and prevents emergency blockages.

The solution works for food-processing facilities and food service environments.

Eco-Trap uses biological nutrients and stimulants to increase the natural bacteria colony population to promote FOG breakdown. The more beneficial bacteria present in grease traps, the more ability it has to break down fats, oils and greases filling up.

The treatment helps resolve mechanical, compliance, and odour problems, and comes in three different forms:

Eco-Trap L – a liquid which can be automatically metered through a pump system;

Eco-Trap P – a powder in water-soluble packets that can be added to the grease trap at the end of the day; and

Eco-Trap Bloc – a slow-release block added to a less turbulent part of the trap for extended treatment.

In a fish canning factory that operated 24/7, the grease trap was overloaded due to the use of seawater in factory processes, with water totally obscured by a fat layer. The high chloride content was slowing the digestion of fats. After two months of Eco-Trap and Bionetix’s BCP22 (specific FOG treatment) the water surface had cleared by up to 70 per cent.
