Greasezilla Takes On the FOG Monster

Greasezilla in the News:

Greasezilla Founder and President, Ron Crosier, shares his insights on FOG handling in Modern Pumping Today.

MPT: Could you explain the focus of Greasezilla and how it has set itself apart in handling the growing need for fat, oil, and grease treatment in municipal markets?

Ron Crosier: Greasezilla started in the pumping industry in the 1960s, and we began pumping grease traps in the in the early 1980s. Disposing of grease trap waste has always been an issue, and I don’t know that it’s ever been easy. People have used several technologies over the years—dewatering technologies, composting, and so on. Ten to fifteen years ago, we were heavily into composting and using sawdust as a bulking agent.

At the time we were paid to haul all the sawdust from sawmills in the area, and then, with the advent of the wood pellets, we were paid to haul that away, which became quite valuable and that made the composting difficult for us. So we started looking for other methods of handling the waste.

MPT: In those days, was it difficult to find places that could treat fat, oils, and grease?

Ron Crosier: Absolutely, we had no options in West Virginia. None of what we had to handle it ourselves. If we were going to be in the business, that large companies. Then you hold it facilities in other states. You could blend a little bit of it with septic—and that was what many of the small haulers did—but you couldn’t blend much of it. You’d find yourself in a bind very, very easily. So that led us to start our research and development of a way to remove brown grease from the grease trap waste. And after a few years of R&D, Greasezilla was the result.

At this point in time, Hermes has a well-established brand throughout Europe, but the company does not have the same level of name recognition in North America. So we decided to partner with DPR Group to let U.S. retailers know about the full range of e-commerce services Hermes offers for e-businesses and international expansion. DPR Group did a fantastic job for Hermes at the Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition (IRCE), promoting attendance at our sessions and scheduling media interviews before and after. We’ve never had as much press coverage at any U.S. event before. I highly recommend DPR Group to foreign companies seeking to launch their products and services in U.S. markets.
