The strict environmental regulations with increased penalties for untreated bilge water discharged overboard are in place to protect the oceans and coastal waters from illegal dumping of waste oil.

Tangshan Port is located southeast of Tangshan city, at Bohai Bay in Hebei province, east of Tianjin and west of Qinhuangdao, the other two ports that signed MOU’s with Genoil in 2009. Once approved, Genoil will furnish an oily water separation production unit that will be manufactured in China by Genoil’s established manufacturing partner. They will provide a unit built according to the company’s high quality specifications. Because of its proximity to the port, low manufacturing costs and reduced transportation costs should result.

The company’s treatment reduces oil content from bilge water to well below 15 parts per million so it meets strict international standards for discharges into the ocean. The Crystal bilge water separator was developed by Genoil for the commercial marine industry. It has been approved by US Coast Guard, according to the International Maritime Organization standards, and the American Bureau of Shipping.
