The Biodegradable BioSok™ Bilge Sock - Not your Fathers Bilge Sock
Prevent Accidental Leaks of Oil and Gas from Boat Bilges with the Biodegradable BioSok™ Bilge Sock
Despite boaters’ best efforts, motor oils, gasoline, and diesel fuel can often be found leaking in the bilge of personal pleasure craft. The accidental release of these hydrocarbons into waterways and other marine environments when the bilge is pumped is not only against the law, it is extremely hazardous to marine plants and animals.
To combat the spilled oil, boaters have been deploying common bilge socks filled with manufactured absorbent materials that absorb the oils from the bilge water. While these socks are adequate at removing the oils from the bilge water, they do not actively remediate the spill and require special disposal at the end of their useful life.
BioSok™ is not your common bilge sock. Developed with technology pioneered by NASA, BioSok™ works to both absorb and remediated the spilled oil in the bilge. The active ingredient in BioSok™, PRP™ Powder, attracts naturally occurring microorganisms that literally eat the spilled oil, leaving water and CO2 as the byproduct. And, the absorbent material in BioSok™, a proprietary non-toxic, biodegradable blend of wax, requires no special disposal when spent.
