Our Products

Hepburn Bio Care cleaning, sanitising and organic waste treatment products were developed to help create a safer work and leisure place, and in so doing to address growing world concern with the number of non-biodegradable chemicals in use, and the tons of organic waste being poured untreated into our environment.

The Hepburn Process is based on using only biodegradable and biological cleaning and waste treatment products. Our cleaning products are non-aggressive and lift the dirt from soiled areas without damaging surfaces. Our bioproducts use the surface area in the effluent discharge pipes and drains to create a bioreactor throughout the vessel or building. This effectively breaks down all organic waste streams in situ, prior to discharge into treatment tanks, council drains, our oceans, rivers and environment. They also predigest all types of organic waste at its source, including galley waste, drainage/pulper water, black or grey water waste, and contaminated bilge water. The results are proven by substantial reductions of BOD (biochemical oxygen demand) by as much as 70%, TSS (total suspended solids) by 80-90%, and COD (chemical oxygen demand).

Our Service

Our experienced Executive Account Managers are trained to help you meet budgets, train your crew and eliminate the risk of fines for regulations that are changing daily. We will also eliminate odours, blockages and reduce inventory, whilst protecting your investment, our environment, your staff and guests.

We can provide simple solutions or total service contracts where we manage your chemical and plastics inventory, often reducing this by 80% which in turn reduces your freight and handling costs pro-rata. We solve the problems of too many chemicals, high overboard discharge levels, non-compliance with regulation, management of black and grey water lines, smells, and dysfunctional toilets.

If you have a problem reducing costs, meeting new legislation regarding health and safety or discharge, a fear of how to cope with NORO outbreaks, sanitising efficiently, odours, discharge levels of phosphates, TSS, heavy metals or ammonia or too many chemicals, then please contact us. We look forward to working with you to create a safer world.

Our quality commitment

Our ISO9001 LRQA quality certification ensures that from your initial point of contact to the delivered product you will experience the highest level of service, all of course whilst remaining competitive!
