The maritime sector is a conglomerate of different industries. One of the common denominators of this sector is that everything needs to be cleaned, if not continuously so at least periodically. Often ships and boats are cleaned while they are out at sea and during exterior cleaning the wash-off is discharged into the sea. In many cases toxic and hazardous chemicals go overboard with dangerous consequences for marine life such as plants, animals and fish.
Green Clean Technology AS has a number of environmentally friendly products used in the maritime sector that can eliminate environmental threats.
Depending what you want to clean in combination with what you want to remove we offer a new type of product group for cleaning and degreasing; G-clean®. These are produced in the US from plants mostly grown there too. They are completely biodegradable alternatives to conventional chemicals and, in addition, they are completely safe for the users.
The products work the same way and supplied in concentrated form and then being diluted and activated on-site with water. The solution is sprayed onto the surfaces with a pressure washer or a low-pressure container. In addition, they are easy to use and only an absolute minimum of personal protective equipment is needed but, of course, the company’s HSE regulations must be followed.
The wash-off is usually biodegradable and, in most cases, there is no need to treat this as hazardous waste, saving money.
Upsides using G-clean® are; cost effectiveness, less labour intensive and increased safety for both the user and the environment. There are no downsides!
