A fatberg is a congealed mass in a sewer system formed by the combination of flushed non-biodegradable solid matter, such as wet wipes, and congealed grease or cooking fat. Fatbergs became a problem in the 2010s in the UK and Ireland, because of ageing Victorian sewers and the rise in usage of disposable (so-called “flushable”) cloths.
