About Environmental Composites Inc.
Throughout Florida, wet and dry retention ponds are required to collect oil and grease and floating trash from stormwater runoff then filter these pollutants from the water before they end up in the Florida’s pristine streams, rivers, lakes and bays. The Enviro- iSkimmer developed by Environmental Composites Inc. Tavares, Florida saves state and local governments money 2 ways.
First, the iSkimmer is not recyclable. But, it is “Greener “ than the recyclable aluminum skimmers it has replaced. The Enviro-Composite Skimmer is manufactured with less costly energy than the aluminum skimmers it replaces over and over, and since it is not recyclable it is of no value to thief’s who regularly steal aluminum skimmers and sell them to scrap dealers for cash money. Thus, by not being “recyclable” is saving the taxpayers of Florida hundreds of thousands of dollars in replacement costs and improving the environment, not to mention crime reduction.
Second, the iSkimmer is impact resistant and intelligent. Many skimmers are installed in areas that see water only during the most severe storms when pollution is the highest. But during the dry periods grass and weeds grow up around them and tractor mowers are used to trim everything back. During that process heavy mowers contact the skimmer bending, or breaking the standard aluminum, galvanized steel or fiberglass skimmers. The Composite iSkimmer can take severe impacts from mowers, bend out of the way without breaking, and then automatically return to its original position ready to filter more trash and oil out of our waterways. No need to replace any broken skimmers or hammer bent ones straight and they wont rot, rust or corrode. This results in more taxpayer savings.
Another innovative product from Environmental Composites Inc. is the theft resistant and corrosion resistant Enviro Composite-Grate pedestrian grating for stormwater control structures. Heavy cast iron or steel grates in Stormwater control structures are old technology when compared with light weight, high strength, corrosion resistant Enviro-Composite Grate. No more pinched fingers, broken toes or sore backs when you switch to high flow through Composite Grates. And, they are more economical too! Available in standard Florida DOT sizes C,D,E,H and can be custom fabricated to any size including round.
