BIOTAL MARINE
Unique biological products for cleaning of engine room and treatment of black and grey water systems

JOWA is now presenting our newest cooperation with Biotal Marine, which brings into to JOWA more that 20 years experience with use and understanding of eco-benign®. Through this cooperation JOWA is proud to present our latest chemistry products that can comply with the highest environmental standards such as HOCNF registrations for offshore use.

Removing dirt and other soils in the engine room is a serious challenge. Traditionally, ‘heavy’ chemistry has been used to solve the problems, such as solvents, heavy duty surfactants and acids, but we are now starting to understand that such materials can have a negative effect on the overall compliance of the ship. For example engine room cleaners that cause emulsion of bilge water and oily waste can increase the amount of oily waste retained on board, or excessive use of acids for black water descaling can have a negative effect on the operation of the sewage treatment plant. Biotal Marine products all offer a demonstrative performance, safety or environmental benefit and in many cases, an overall cost saving for the user.

BENEFITS

  • Removes oils, grease and other hydrocarbon soiling from surfaces
  • "Clean and break" technology means product is highly bilge friendly
  • Economical benefit by helping OWS to function well, thereby reducing volume of oily waste requiring disposal
  • Does not interfere with operation of oily water monitors
