What is the environmental impact of cargo hold cleaning?

by Calista Nicks March 2nd, 2020 in Cargo Hold Cleaning


Pollution has a devastating impact on marine ecosystems. It damages local environments, sometimes rendering them uninhabitable. It also travels up the food chain, becoming more concentrated the higher it goes. Eventually it can cause harm to anyone who eats food from the sea.

It has become increasingly important to reduce or eliminate the harm marine chemicals are causing to our environment. Since cargo hold cleaning can bring chemicals into direct contact with the marine environment, this is definitely one of those areas in which we can help.

OUR HOLD CLEANING AND BARRIER SOLUTIONS have been designed to meet your needs and be environmentally friendly. They can be easily applied, and are the best choice for hold cleaning and protection for dry bulk carriers. Plus, extensive testing shows there is no harm to marine environments or marine life through use of our solutions.

As well as being safe for the environment, our products are compliant with the pollution prevention measures outlined in the MARPOL Convention. (Marpol Protocol)
