Designed to be used in single or multi-stage oil interceptors and bilge tanks in marine and inland waterways ships and boats. Floating oils and fuels oils are naturally attracted to the absorbant polymer present in the pillows fibres. Microorganisms encapsulated in an inner pouch are activated in the presence of oils and water and certain micronutrients. These microorganisms are then capable of degrading a range of oils (linear alkyl chains and polyaromatic fractions), heavy and light fuels, diesel range organics, and BTEX compounds. Additionally, a very broad range of non-oily, organic materials are also degraded, giving an overall reduction in BOD and TOC.
