River Canal Rescue is officially launching its new Bilgeaway filter at METSTRADE.

The filter traps the hydrocarbons that are found in petrol, diesel and engine oil and prevents them entering the waterways, rendering them non-reactive prior to disposal.

The filter will remove the hydrocarbons to less than three parts per million and according to RCR doesn’t exceed five ppm, even when dealing with a 15% oil saturation level.

The environmentally-friendly contents can then be disposed of and the cartridge reused.

“As current bilge filter solutions had a poor reputation, we wanted to ensure ours exceeded expectations,” says RCR operations director Jay Forman who devised the filter. “In any water type and temperature, with any hydrocarbons, it continues to operate for an unrivalled length of time, without leaching pollutants into the environment.”

The plastic filter comes in small and large sizes and a chrome and stainless steel version is available for larger cruisers and yachts.

RCR has joined forces with distribution company 54North and hopes to offer a free disposal and recycling service in the future and is in discussions with marinas and chandleries to arrange cartridge drop-off locations together with various agencies to set up a national network of composting sites.
