*A better solution would be to somehow capture the fats and oils before they hit the sewers...Recycling R US
As a kid, we saved the cooking grease in a metal coffee can...for use later, or put it into the garbage can
By Y10K, they'll HAVE to recycle it...or else!
In the United States, many cities eventually required restaurants and other food sellers to have grease traps and to clean them out, and a surprising amount of controversy and intrigue has grown around these caches of fat. In some places, thieves blowtorch their way into grease traps to steal used cooking oil that can be made into biofuels.
In China, fat from sewers and traps is illicitly scooped, cleaned up—though not well—and sold on the black market as “ gutter oil.” In cheap restaurants and street stalls, your dinner might even be cooked in gutter oil.
Some cities are even looking at fatbergs as legitimate fuel. After all, fat is high in calories and therefore energy. Thames Water has partnered with a renewable-fuel company to dig fatbergs out of sewers and turn them into biodiesel.
