Marine Sewage Tank Treatment - BioMarine

BioMarine is a specialised bacterial formula, which has been developed to treat toilet waste on cruise and cargos ships without using chemicals like formaldehyde.

A cargo vessel, a typical application for BioMarineThe Problem

Most cruise ships and for that matter, modern day cargo vessels are at sea for long periods of time and have to be equipped to cater for significant toilet requirements.

Unfortunately, most of these conventional problem solvers are based on formaldehyde solutions, which cause detrimental affects to the environment, as well as the ship itself.

Not only is the application of formaldehyde very expensive, the formaldehyde is now classified as a probable human carcinogen, which only adds to the overall cost of disposal. Moreover, as formaldehyde is a preservative it does nothing to help break down the organic matter and corresponding sludge build-up.

Furthermore, it is likely that formaldehyde will become completely illegal to use and thus, a more effective alternative should be sought.

The Product and Solution

BioMarine is a very specialised bacterial formula, which has been developed with the environment in mind. The product is a highly natural solution for portable waste and odour control. The product has a unique blend of microbes that work continuously to reduce the accumulation of solid waste and odours.

The good bacteria that is deployed is uses good enzymes that essentially out perform the bad bacteria for the food source, which are the things that cause the smells and stains. Enzymes such as amylase, protease, lipase and cellulose, biodegrade most of the solids found in the tanks and liquefy the remaining solids for easy pumping.

Not only does BioMarine contain an extremely effective blend of good bacteria, which degrades all the body fats and liquids, but also, eliminates the malodours at source, and stops the build-up of uric scale.
