TECHNICAL MANUAL
ENCAPSULATED OILS SAFE FOR LANDFILLS


 

Problem:

Inorganic adsorbents such as clays/mineral grains, and all the “polys” and various silica combinations leach the adsorbed product and in most states and countries are prohibited by law to be land filled and must be incinerated as hazardous waste. The reason, leaching will contaminate both the land filled site itself, and the ground waters, aquifers and rivers in the region. Furthermore, the plastics and polys leave a toxic residue and release dioxins and furans into the atmosphere when incinerated, and the clays/mineral grains discharge toxic dust when poured, and inhalation is poisonous.

Solution:

Hydrocarbon absorbents produced from sphagnum peat moss do not leach oil that has been encapsulated within its capillaric pore structure. Laboratory tests by accredited facilities were needed to verify this. Please review the many test reports under the "TESTS" heading on our website at www.spillsorb.com
