The remediation of oil damage on land

Spill-Sorb is spread over the affected area as quickly and evenly as possible to a sufficient depth to allow for immediate absorption. After use the absorbent/spill mix should be swept up and containerized for removal; either to be incinerated, land filled or land farmed.

Absorption times are, typically


2 Seconds


5 Seconds

Engine Oil

20 Seconds


30 Seconds

Light Crude

60 Seconds

Heavy Crude

90 Seconds

The remediation of oil damage on standing water

Spill-Sorb should be scattered across the surface of the water to a sufficient depth so as to ensure that full absorption will take place. Typically absorption times will increase by 15% over land use applications. After use the absorbent will have a tendency to form a mat windborne to the downside of the water surface, from where it can be recovered.


Spill-Sorb will burn to a residue of less than 2% of its original volume. Spill-Sorb can also be land filled or land farmed into a usable compost. Spill-Sorb may be the only oil absorbent containing humic acid which aids in the biodegradation of hydrocarbons through microbial activity. As a result of its natural capillary capacity Spill-Sorb on contact absorbs hydrocarbons or other pollutants such as PCBs very quickly and encapsulates the pollutants indefinitely. Used Spill-Sorb will not leech or discharge used pollutants, making it clean and easy to handle, and has passed the Toxicity Characteristics Leaching Procedures (TCLP) test with oil.

If conditions do not permit burning (yes, you can often burn the encapsulated spill right on the water), Spill-Sorb can easily be collected from the water surface by scoops or nets. Spill-Sorb can be swept up, shoveled or vacuumed after it has been used.
