Jackson, TN, United States, 2010/01/15 - Green Boating USA, LLC announces today that the Murrenhil Corporation and their 'Rapid Oil Containment Barrier System' have agreed to become a Sponsor/Advertiser.
Green Boating USA, LLC is presently formulating a 'Green 5 Star Rating System' for Marine Facilities and individual Boaters that are striving to go above and beyond the 'Clean Marina Initiatives'. Our Advertisers/Sponsors are selected because of the products they offer for the Marine Industry to be more Eco-Friendly in the marketplace.
Oil spills on the nations waterways are a major problem and according to the TVA “Clean Marina Initiative,” “Because of the properties of oil, a cup of oil can spread as a very thin oil sheen over more than an acre of calm water… Spread over the surface, oil creates a barrier to oxygen movement across the water surface and to animals that must breathe at the surface. At and below the surface, oil attaches to plant leaves, decreasing their respiration, and to bottom sediments.”
Glenn Murray, president at Murrenhil says, “At Murrenhil Corporation, we share a passion for protecting the planet's water - now and in the future. Our company was formed out of the critical need for a more advanced method of preventing the disastrous ecological effects of oil spills.
Oil spills from tankers, barges and other vessels, pipelines, storage tanks, facilities and rigs occur daily around the world, spreading out over the water and ultimately reaching the shoreline where they undoubtedly have the greatest impact.
Research shows that contingency planning is an important step in ensuring an effective and timely response to oil spills. That's why we've gone to great lengths to develop and introduce the world's fastest emergency first response oil containment system. Designed to stop oil in its tracks, the patent-pending ROC Barrier™ will rapidly contain an oil spill before it ever reaches the shoreline, protecting marine life and preserving our water supply.
Our global goal is to ensure all marinas, ports, harbours, shipping lanes, beaches, waterfront resorts, and water conservation areas are prepared with the ROC Barrier™, so that it is readily available to be deployed quickly after an oil spill occurs.”
“We are very pleased to have the Murrenhil Corporation as an advertiser” says Kevin George, one of the founding members of Green Boating USA, LLC. “Their ROC Barrier is a product that we feel will assist Marinas, Boat Owners and the ecology of the waterways with any oil spill problem. We are very selective in our Advertisers/Sponsors and chose Murrenhil because of their commitment to preserving the environment. We were equally impressed with their letter from the U.S. Coast Guard who had contained an oil spill utilizing the ROC Barrier System.”
