About biotal marine

Biotal Marine has over 34 years experience in the development and application of specialised products for the marine industry.

We have worked  closely with ship owners and OEMs to ensure that we have a complete understanding of the problems faced by the industry and as a result our high-performance,  application-specific products achieve a level of effectiveness and consistent results previously unseen in the marine sector.

We focus on creating environmentally-responsible, high-quality chemical and biological products that make a significant difference.  Our product range is compact and specialised and we can respond to market trends and customer needs.  We have both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification.

As the majority of our products are non-hazardous, they can be delivered quickly and cost-effectively anywhere in the world using existing global couriers and therefore multiple stocking points are not required: the cost of these infrastructures in competing companies is eventually borne by the customer.

Back in the mid-1990s we were the first company to launch a liquid biological cleaner, MDS 2000, into the market. This product was so effective it almost created a verb – to ‘Biotal’ the pipework!

industry experts

All of our research and development is carried out in-house in our own laboratories in our European and US headquarters and we formulate all of our own products. Our technical team visits ships, ship owners and OEMs regularly and we therefore understand the problems the industry faces first hand.

Eco-benign® technologies

The ‘entry requirement’ for our eco-benign® chemistry takes in many factors, not just biodegradability. We also look at toxicity and behaviour in the environment, sustainability and other factors. We don’t use solvents (including glycol ethers), acids, phosphates, or EDTA. Our eco-benign® chemistry can either be used alone or to support the action of the application-specific bacteria within products.

Our use and understanding of eco-benign® chemistry means we have products that can comply with the highest environmental standards such as HOCNF registrations for offshore use.

Scientifically validated and verified results

The strains in our products have been scientifically validated and verified and selected specifically for the application, rather than being generic bacteria. We have carried out extensive research into strain optimisation and our ongoing R&D programmes quantify the capabilities of many different bacteria; we can unequivocally demonstrate the effectiveness of the bacterial strains present in Biotal Marine products compared to competitors.
