Pura Naturals

We are excited about the vast possibilities of this product.

Pura Naturals Inc. ( Ticker: PNAT), using its BeBetterFoam®, has designed a unique filtration device for closed orifices and scuppers, and has now filed a patent application with the United States Patent and Trademark office. The new “Scupper Plug” product is used primarily for the marine industry but has many other applications as well. The Scupper Plug, sold under the Pura Marine division of Pura Naturals, allows water to freely flow through any orifice but remediates and collects the oils that tend to create problems in drainage situations, which are most often found on oil transport vessels, barges, tug boats, recreational boats, and even in swimming pools.

The Scupper Plug device has far-reaching opportunities for any drainage pipe or opening where a water solution also has a hydrocarbon bearing solution. The device saves our environment in a practical way, unlike anything else. This device will solidly protect the environment and at the same time address and diminish exposure to pollution fines and penalties for the customers who put it to use. The overall economic benefit to the customer is expected to be very significant.

Bob Doherty, CEO, stated: "We are excited about the vast possibilities of this product. A more practical need exists within the marine petroleum transport vessels industry to control the oil residue from the transfer pumps and barge surfaces on those vessels. Various industries will benefit from this technology which will capture the contaminants we don’t want in our waterways and leave clear water to freely pass through.”

Along with its broad reaching uses, the Scupper Plug is designed to be reusable. Pura Naturals, Inc. is an EarthConscious® company committed to creating better products for a better planet, which includes products that are natural, renewable, and reusable.
