Waste oil and fat from restaurants and takeaways will be used to power a new electricity plant in east London. Currently, excess fat and oil collects in sewers, forming masses called ‘fatbergs’, which have to be flushed out by sewage workers. Thames Water plans to install ‘fat traps’ directly under sinks in restaurants which it will then collect and use at the plant. They are joining forces with Midlands based company, Fogtrap, to supply the service.
