Aqua Mundus Educates Eton

The Client 

Eton boys’ boarding school is one of the UK’s leading independent schools. It currently has around 1,300 pupils between 13 and 18 years of age. Founded by King Henry VI in 1440, Eton continues to provide a stimulating all-round education, coupled with academic excellence. Tradition remains important but its willingness to innovate has seen the school thrive for almost six centuries. 

The Brief

Operating numerous kitchen areas, Eton College wanted to update the grease management system and improve odour control in two of its kitchens – one that serves the school’s central dining area and one that serves one of Eton’s boarding houses. Aqua Mundus was asked to recommend, design and install the new grease management system for the two kitchens, which collectively produce around 80,000 meals per year for pupils.

The Solution

Aqua Mundus delivered an upgraded grease management system for the two kitchens at Eton College. The company designed the new system,and handled the specification, installation and commissioning of three GreaseShield grease recovery units (GRUs). A proactive mechanical grease trap, GreaseShield GRUs take advantage of waste thermal energy present in the effluent discharged from commercial kitchens to remove emulsified FOGs from wastewater. The units are the only environmentally-certified grease removal units on the market. Aqua Mundus also provided Eton College with expert guidance throughout the project.


Paul Bayley of Eton College commented:

“The new grease management system has eliminated the odoursthat were once present in the boarding house and central dining areas. Aqua Mundus’ expertise and ongoing support was critical to the success of this project, and we are extremely happy with the new system they have installed.”

Aqua Mundus is one of the UK’s leading independent wastewater management specialists. Providing a comprehensive range of market-leading grease management solutions from numerous manufacturers, the Aqua Mundus team also provides truly impartial advice with regard to system design, installation, commissioning, servicing and maintenance.
