Look at the current solution in place and your forecourt management practices. Check the filter specification inside the separators to ensure it prevents the outflow of Ethanol and the BTEX contaminants into the watercourse. If not, you may be at risk. However, through simple forecourt management Ethanol filters can be retro-fitted – and easily installed at new locations for virtually the same cost as non-ethanol coalescing filters.
In the effort to be green,
UK Government has unwittingly unleashed
a new, invisible pollution problem
on forecourt owners
The problem of environmental
Ethanol and BTEX pollution from forecourts
will get worse over time as the %
of bio matter in fuel increases.
Filtering oil and water is pretty
straightforward. But what
if the really dangerous pollutants hide
themselves in the water?
A scientific breakthrough means £200
is the difference between
forecourt biofuel protection
and biofuel pollution.
BTEX are particularly destructive contaminants.
When they hide in water they become
a formidable environmental enemy.
The Biofuel Paradox and Forecourt Management
What are the risks and costs to forecourt owners?
"Fines, bad publicity and your company being viewed as negligent is something no forecourt owner need face when the financial cost of implementing a working solution is negligible."− Mark Calvert, CEO Adler and Allan
