Oil Spill Absorbant:

Peat sorb is the world’s leading oil absorbent product designed to contain and clean oil/hydrocarbon spills with its unique properties.  Peat sorb is a modified, activated peat product with a moisture content of approximately 10%. Our proprietary drying and curing process creates a finished oil spill clean-up product that repels water and absorbs hydrocarbons on contact. Peat sorb is non-leaching, and the hydrocarbons that are absorbed by peat sorb, are permanently captured until they biodegrade. Peat sorb is effective at absorbing a full range of hydrocarbons including crude oil, refined crude oil products, chemicals, resins, and PCB’s. In an oil spill clean-up, once the oil has been absorbed, the oil-laden peat sorb can be easily disposed and is typically either landfilled or burned as a fuel source. The product is non-toxic, non-hazardous, silica-free and is easy to apply (manually or mechanically). Peat sorb is also lightweight, easy to handle, non-abrasive (will not harm metal equipment), vapor suppressive and cost-effective. Peat sorb has been tested in independent laboratories and meets the requirements of the Toxic Characteristic Leaching Procedure, the Paint Filter Test, and the Liquid Release Test.
