Low capital cost. g. DDT) tend to concentrate in grease. • Treatment for reuse must begin within a few days; otherwise grease begin to decompose. • Requires good decanting because of long distance transportation. • Subject to interference from actinomycete growths in activated sludge, which increases the amount of solids that are not grease but are in the scum. 10. Reuse for low-grade soap manufacture Same as Method 9. • Similar to Method 8, but less serious. • Caustic soda could be added at the treatment plant, preventing decomposition and probably making the material more usable to grease reclaimers, but raising operating costs.

To overcome these problems, grit should be handled in a proper manner. The first step in grit handling is the separation of the grit from the main stream of wastewater. Typically, grit removal facilities precede primary clarification and follow screening and comminution. The processes or devices used for grit removal all based on the fact that grit is heavier than the organic solids, which should be kept in suspension for treatment in following unit processes. Nowadays, many types of grit removal system are exist.
