1. Sphagnum peat moss in its natural
state in northern Canada.
2. Exploded view of one cell in
hydrophilic state. Encapsulating water up to 20 times its
3. Spill-Sorb factory in Canada.
Cyclonic heat activating process.
4. Exploded view of sphagnum cell now
in hydrophobic state will encapsulate hydrocarbons and repel
water. Green indicates Humic Acid Catalyst (H.A.C.) which is an
essential part of the biodegradation process.
5. This picture shows hydrocarbons
encapsulated in the cell.
6. Magnification view of humic acid
naturally occurring microbes breaking down hydrocarbons.
Red indicates microbes.
7. View of cell after biodegradation.
The cell has turned to a HYDROPHILIC state and will encapsulate
