Bilgeaway is eco friendly bilge filter that removes hydrocarbons (oil & fuel) from the water before it is pumped out in to the waterways, preventing pollution. BilgeAway was developed to stop the contamination caused by bilge water. Bilge water is periodically discharged to avoid a vessel sinking and contamination within the water is also pumped out into the immediate waterway (river, lake, sea, harbour etc.) The effect of this contamination are visible in ports, harbours and marinas. The BilgeAway filter is designed to extract petrol, diesel, engine oil, etc from bilge water before it is pumped back into the waterways stopping pollution at source. BilgeAway renders hydrocarbons non-reactive, meaning that for the life of the hydrocarbon it cannot damage the environment.
