The design of the ThruFlow™ decking system allows light and water to
penetrate decking, helping to protect the environment beneath. ThruFlow has been scientifically proven to reduce a facility’s environmental footprint by as much as 10-20 percent on seagrasses or submerged aquatic vegetation benefiting all other life that depend on these things for survival. The grated 0.8 static coefficient of friction non-slip surface of ThruFlow is comfortable, never hot to walk on and exclusively ADA compliant for both ramp and deck surfaces. The company says its decking creates comfortable, maintenance-free access without creating dead area for marine vegetation.

Clean Marine Solutions® said its Vanish Wastewater Treatment and Recycling SystemsTM are designed and built to meet present and anticipated environmental compliance regulations concerning powerwash wastewater. The company helps potential customers sort through powerwash wastewater regulations so that they can make the most of their finances. The systems are modular. If discharge to a sewer is presently permitted, the marina may only need the Vanish Treatment System. If regulations change and discharge is not permitted or the regulatory burdens become too high, customers can purchase the system with Ultraviolet Water Purification and plug it in to the treatment system.

The Patent Pending ROC Oil Cling Pads (Rapid Oil Containment) are made from a specially blended polyethylene film laminate. The innovative design, 14” x 14”, 2 ply pad, is sealed on all four sides, with perforated holes every square inch. The perforations allow the hydrocarbons to migrate to the interior of the pad. The pad uniquely holds the oil in the pad when removed from the
water, while not absorbing water. The multi-layered, multisurfaced, pad is light-weight, oil attracting and water repelling. Testing proves the ROC Oil Cling Pad picks up and holds 40 to 60 percent more hydrocarbons than conventional pads on the market today.

The rotomolded dock box from Trionics is green just siting on the dock. During the manufacturing and disposal process, rotational molding uses an environmentally friendly FDA polyethylene resin and manufacturing process, which creates only minimal scrap material that can be immediately recycled back into the manufacturing process.

They can also be recycled at the end of their lifecycle, so it will not end up in the landfill.
