OIL POLLUTION CONTROL

Our powders do contain microbes [non-pathogenic Bacteria and Enzymes]

The microbes are not genetically engineered and are naturally occurring. In all tests carried out by us and by independent tests, our microbes are stronger and grow faster than anything we have seen or tested.

Our powders contain literally Billion’s of CFU’s (colony forming units) per gram of product.

Our SoilFix product was recently judged to be the most efficient and cost-effective of products available in South Africa, by an independent test is undertaken by Dr Faan van Wyk and Prof. Leon van Rensburg of Potchefstroom University. AngloGold commissioned the two-month trial.

A microbe-rich, natural powder for absorbing spills from hard surfaces. OilSweep is a 100% natural, bio­degradable, non-leaching absorbent, engineered for the safe, quick, pick-up and disposal of various hydrocarbon fraction liquids (oil spills) in the engineering, mining, transport and sensitive environments. It very quickly encapsulates the spill, leaving the surface safe, clean and dry.

Description
EconoSweep is a economical natural biodegradable non-leaching absorbent engineered for the safe, quick, pick up and disposal of various hydrocarbon fraction liquids (oil spills) in the engineering, mining and transport industries.

EconoSweep is manufactured from environmentally acceptable naturally occurring components, which do not impose an environmental threat or hazard. It quickly encapsulates the spill, leaving the surface safe, clean and dry.

Application
EconoSweep is recommended for use on all hard surfaces to safely and quickly absorb petrol, diesel oils, animal, vegetable, mineral and synthetic oils, solvents, human waste and blood spills economically.

EconoSweep is simply poured and spread over the spill and left to absorb, the area is then swept back and forth until the surface is clean and dry.

EconoSweep is then swept up and disposed of; where it naturally biodegrades the encapsulated hydrocarbon into harmless carbon dioxide and water.

NB: [Dispose in accordance with local legislation or to a remediation facility]

Features and Benefits

• Economical
• Safely, quickly, absorbs and encapsulates spills
• Leaves a dry surface once swept up and absorbed
• Naturally biodegrades the encapsulated hydrocarbons.
• Safe and easy to use
• Flame retardant, non-hazard, non-abrasive, non-carcinogenic
• 100% environmentally acceptable.
Recommended directions for use:
Create a weir to stop the spill from spreading at the source by surrounding the outer edge of the spill with EconoSweep, cover the entire spill by pouring or broadcasting EconoSweep over it, let EconoSweep absorb the spill, prior to sweeping the spill back and forth until the spillage has been totally encapsulated, sweep up and dispose of in accordance with local legislation.

Absorbent Booms 
These are used to absorb and encapsulate hydrocarbon spills. Can absorb up to 5 times their weight in oils and still float on water.

Absorbent Pillows 
Absorbent Pillows are manufactured using Hydro-OilTreat, which is a natural, environmentally-friendly absorbent. The Pillows will bio-degrade the encapsulated hydrocarbons.

For cleaning up oil spills on water. Hydro OilTreat has very high buoyancy and effortlessly floats on water, absorbing 5 times its own weight in hydrocarbons and fuels. Due to the fact that it is Hydrophobic, it repels water while readily absorbing and encapsulating all forms of hydrocarbon fractions, whether concentrated, semi-emulsified, emulsified or dissolved.

We used our absorbent booms and pillows to contain oil contaminating the water.
