Keep It Clean & Green
John penned an article that appeared in the September 2014 edition of Marine News.
When dealing with oil and other hazardous contaminants on vessels and in marine facilities, there are some common misconceptions about the way hydrocarbons biodegrade.
"The words biodegrade and bioremediate are not interchangeable," said Jay H. Murland, CEO of EnviroLogic Biobased Technologies Inc. who manufacturer a line of over 30 EPA-approved bioremediation products.
To explain further, let’s look at the difference between the processes of bioremediation, bioaugmentation and encapsulation.
Earlier this year, Green Marine won the Lloyd's List North American Maritime Award for Environmental Excellence.
I'm proud to be a Green Marine Partner and stand ready to help my Green Marine colleagues meet their "green" goals by providing expertise and eco-friendly bioremediation products that can dramatcially cut down hydrocarbons in a cost-efficient manner.

With one quick application, the process of bioremediation begins.
With regular use, cleanup costs can be significantly reduced and environmental compliance and employee safety enhanced.
NavalKleen is a blend of naturally occurring micro-organisms that metabolize oil waste and other hydrocarbons.
The organisms simply digest the majority of hydrocarbons present in bilges, oily waste tanks and oil water separators with little disruption to surrounding non-contaminated areas.
The by-product is water that meets environmental regulations and is ready for disposal.
NavalKleen is a purpose-formulated product that is easy to use, environmentally safe and cost-effective.
NavalKleen bioremediation cleaner is recommended for No. 2 through No. 6 Fuel Oil general maintenance, pollution prevention, and waste minimization.
Q: What is the best way to use bioremediation in storm water collection tanks at maritime facilities, for instance, shipyards or ports?
A: Firstly, bioremediation allows you to treat hydrocarbons in place (in situ), which saves on haul away and additional clean up costs.
Here you would use an oil/water separator product which can be put on a hydrostatic pump that has a timer on it. Then all you have to do is go around once a month and change out the product.
It's less time-consuming.
It takes less manpower.
It's extremely safe for workers to use.
Adding bioremediation products to existing spill kits can also cut time and costs.
Typically ports will have a 55-gallon drum with socks, diapers and pads to absorb spills.
Adding bioremediation powder to these kits will not only introduce bioremediation into the cleanup process (once bioremediation is introduced and maintained, it will continually break down hydrocarbons), but reduce the number of pads needed to 10 percent.
