When oil and petroleum spills leach into the environment, it is an environmental problem.
Millions of litres of oil are lost or unrecovered every year and a major contributor to this is oil lost through leaks and spills.
To prevent this oil from leaching into the soil and waterways, an oil absorbent that immobilises the spilled oil must be used.
Traditional oil absorbents are often ineffective, messy, heavy and difficult to clean up.
Sukerup organic oil absorbent is a lightweight highly absorbent material. No chemicals are used in the growing, processing or packaging of this 100% organic material. It is naturally inert oil absorbent and is made from a renewable resource unlike many mined kitty litter style products.
One 50 litre bag of Sukerup organic oil absorbent weighs under 10kg but is equivalent to 60-80kg of traditional granular absorbents. It is far more cost effective that traditional absorbents and greatly reduces cleanup time and disposal costs.
Because it is made from a natural renewable material, Sukerup organic oil absorbent is workplace and ecology friendly and is 100% biodegradable.
Sukerup organic oil absorbent is safe to use on all hydrocarbons spills including solvents and fuels. Another benefit of Sukerup organic oil absorbent is that it absorbs vapours and is non-flammable.
This non-dusty oil absorbent is available in 15 and 50 litre bags and is an important component in Spill Station ’s general purpose spill kits.
