Adler and Allan’s revolutionary Ethanol Coalescing filter has won the Environmental Protection and Improvement category at this year’s APEA awards, announced on November 5th; a great accolade for a product that makes a real difference to reducing the risk of pollution from forecourts.
Adler and Allan’s Ethanol Coalescing Filter is the first and only filter of its kind that removes, on average, 90% of all BTEX components from surface water discharged from forecourt separators. BTEX compounds can cause acute and long term toxic effects if they enter the soil and groundwater system. In addition to their toxicity, benzene is known to be a carcinogen.
A simple solution, the Ethanol Coalescing filter can be easily fitted to existing separators without any requirements for modification or upheaval, whilst meeting stringent Environment Agency pollution guidelines.
“We are thrilled to have been recognised in this way by the APEA,” said Alan Scrafton, Group Sales and Marketing Manager for Adler and Allan. “Our Ethanol Coalescing filter will help a wide range of businesses; in the retail, oil, aviation and marine sectors – any industry where fuel is stored and dispensed on site.
“As a company, we are committed to reducing the effect pollution has on the surrounding environment, providing emergency spill response and clean-up services nationwide. By developing products such as this, we can help our clients prevent hazardous substances causing issues in the first place; apart from the environmental damage, polluting incidents can cost the perpetrator in terms of fines and a business’ reputation.”
The APEA Awards is open to members on an annual basis, with the Environmental Protection and Improvement award recognising individuals, organisations and products that have had the biggest positive impact on environmental protection during the last 12 months.
