Title: Sustainable Management of Fat, Oil and Grease (FOG) Waste - A Global Challenge

Abstract: While we are now experiencing some local inconvenience in Dublin city centre due to planned works to facilitate the construction of the "Luas Cross City" line, we should spare a thought for those who endure emergency roadworks in cities around the globe. While some urgent repairs are required occasionally for communication and water networks, there is a growing problem of emergency works and traffic diversions caused by sewer blockages in large cities due to "fatbergs"-a term that has been coined over the past decade or so to describe large conglomerations of fat, oil and grease (FOG).
