San Marcos, CA (PRWEB) August 7, 2008
Grease Reduction Systems, Inc announces the world's first commercially achieved F.O.G. (fats, oils, grease) wastewater treatment system, and the first installed at a luxury resort, Montage Laguna Beach. Presenting a truly green solution to the odor and maintenance problems afflicting most resorts and hotels, this in-situ bioremediation of restaurant grease interceptors finally enables compliance with EPA guidelines.
"'Going Green' and 'Sustainability' are buzz words businesses are trying to push, while the Montage is really walking the talk. Montage Hotels & Resorts commitment to sustainable development and operations is highly commendable," says Markus Lenger, founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Grease Reduction Systems, Inc. "We are proud to be pioneering greener ways to address the fats, oils, and grease reduction problem. The U.S. market is phenomenal. For what resorts and hotels are already paying to pump and move their grease, we're giving them competitive pricing, added value and doing the environment a whole lot of good at the same time, while finally enabling compliance with the EPA directive which forbids just moving the problem when there is an economically viable alternative."
Bill Claypool, Montage Hotels & Resorts VP of Development Services adds, "The Hydrologix GRS at Montage Laguna Beach, has exceeded our expectations for a grease waste management solution and supports our company vision of creating a more sustainable environment both for our guests and the community."
Disposal of F.O.G. in kitchen wastewater collected in grease interceptors, is a major challenge for resorts, hotels and restaurants, globally. Current disposal methods use service trucks to pump and move the collected waste to the next landfill, or to already overburdened sewage treatment plants. The Hydrologix® Grease Reduction System virtually eliminates the regular pumping needs, providing a self monitoring, in situ remediation within the grease interceptor that works around the clock. Using innovative biotechnology to bioremediate this F.O.G. wastewater, the resulting output is grey water - potentially re-usable for landscape irrigation. Grease Reduction Systems, Inc. President, Joseph Barone concludes "The Hydrologix® GRS is the first successful and truly 'green' FOG treatment method on the market today and elegantly demonstrates advanced technology working towards environmentally friendly solutions."
