Organic Sorbents

PPI organic sorbents are effective in the use of oil spill control and are made from natural products such as earthen materials, cellulose fibre and peat.

Absorbent GP™

Oil Spill Control - Absorbent GP Logo

Absorbent GP™ (General Purpose) is designed to contain and control oil spills and other liquids including solvents and non-aggressive chemicals. It is a patented, cellulose fibre sorbent derived from the waste stream of the pulp and paper industry. Absorption is via capillary action, encapsulating and retaining all liquid thereby preventing secondary spills. It is available as particulate, pads, socks, rolls and pillows. Features of Absorbent GP include:

  • Dust free and contains no known carcinogens;
  • Anti-static and static sterile thereby providing an extra margin of safety when shipping electrostatic sensitive items;
  • Passes and exceeds the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP), Paint Filter Test and Liquid Release Test (LRT);
  • Contains no clays, inks or dyes commonly found in recycled newsprint that blocks capillary action and slows or reduces absorption;
  • Organic nature means that the products will readily biodegrade in landfill environments;
  • Resists compression far better than styrene and vermiculite providing greater protection from content migration and impact during shipping; and
  • Eliminates abrasion damage that can occur with mineral packaging absorbents.

Spill-Sorb™

Oil Spill Control - SpillSorb Logo

Spill-Sorb™ is a general purpose particulate, designed as an environmental alternative to clay. Spill-Sorb is made from 100% reclaimed cellulose fibres that absorb liquids including oils, solvents, water based liquids, coolants and non-aggressive chemicals on contact. Absorbed liquids are locked into the cellulose fibres, preventing leaching and handling problems associated with clay and diatomaceous earth. Spill-Sorb offers a number of advantages over Spill-Dri including:

  • It is denser and is therefore more suitable in outdoor environments where air movement may dissipate the sorbent;
  • Unlike Spill-Dri it has a natural fire retardancy;
  • Although Spill-Dri works well on smooth treated floors, Spill-Sorb works better on rough surfaces such as concrete.

Spill-Dri™

Oil Spill Control

Spill-Dri™ contains and absorbs unwanted liquid spills, and removes sheen from floors, work surfaces, driveways, etc and, like Spill-Sorb, is designed as an alternative to clay-type industrial floor absorbents. Spill-Dri is made from 100% reclaimed natural cellulose fibre and absorbs liquids ranging from oils and solvents to water and non aggressive chemicals. Absorption is via capillary action, and, as such, the absorbed liquid is locked into the cellulose fibre, thereby preventing leaching and handling problems. Spill-Dri incorporates ground walnut shells which act to remove the sheen from spills following clean-up.

Absorbent WTM

Oil Spill Control

Absorbent W™ is designed to contain and control spills of hydrocarbons (oil-based liquids) whilst repelling water. Like Absorbent GP, it is also manufactured from reclaimed cellulose, however the product is coated with a patented polymer to give it its hydrophobic( Water Repelling) characteristics. Absorbent W is ideal for cleaning up spills on water and oil sheen removal. Absorbent W is available as particulate, pads, socks, rolls, pillows and booms.

Sphag Sorb

Oil Spill Control

Sphag Sorb™ is an all organic, oil only absorbent, manufactured from high quality Sphagnum Peat Moss. The manufacturing process produces a product which becomes both oleophilic (hydrocarbon attracting) and hydrophobic (water-repelling). Sphag Sorb absorbs hydrocarbons quickly on contact by virtue of its wicking action, and encapsulates oil on contact. This makes Sphag Sorb ideal for hydrocarbon clean up, both on open water as well as land applications.

Bio Smart Absorbents

Absorbent 15™

Bio-Smart Absorbent 15™ is manufactured from recycled materials that would otherwise be thrown away as waste.

These organic fibrous materials are blended and processed to produce a range of absorbents that quickly absorb and control a wide variety of liquid spills including oils, petroleum, fuels, solvents, cooking oils, sewage, protein fluids and other messy liquids that could pollute or contaminate the work area and the environment.

Because of its strong ‘wicking effect’ Absorbent 15 is able to rapidly encapsulated liquids so that they cannot leach back into the environment. Absorbent 15 has been tested for and passes stringent international liquid release standards. In many areas, Bio-Smart Absorbent 15 can be disposed of to landfill, however this is subject to local regulations.

All Bio-Smart absorbents contain a selection of safe and highly effective microbes that will ‘eat and digest’ oils and many types of hydrocarbons. When the resultant oil / absorbent mix are placed in landfill it is rapidly composted.
Alternately the waste mix can be incinerated yielding less than 4% ash.

Bio-Smart absorbents are the natural way to convert potentially harmful liquid pollutants into harmless compost and beneficial ‘earthy’ products.

Absorbent Road Grip™

Bio-Smart Absorbent Road Grip™ is manufactured from a special selection of Australian grown organic cellulose products. These naturally occurring fibrous materials are blended with a mineral to produce a highly effective absorbent that acts quickly to remove a wide variety of liquids including petroleum, oils, fuels, solvents, cooking oils, paint, sewage, protein fluids and other messy liquids that could pollute or contaminate the work area, roadways and the environment.

Not only does Road Grip leave paved surfaces ‘dry’ the mineral additive significantly reduces slippage improving safety for both humans and machines alike. Road Grip passes the Australian standards required for slip testing for both concrete and bitumen surfaces (Test results are available upon request).

Because of its strong ‘wicking effect’ Road Grip able to rapidly encapsulated liquids making it far superior to ‘kitty litter’ products. The mineral base leaves the surface gritty making this product far superior to standard cellulose products. The end result is an Absorbent that has truly unique characteristics.

Bio-Smart Road Grip has also been designed so that it can readily be collected using commercially available street sweepers. This means that spills on busy roads can be cleaned up rapidly to allow the fastest return to normal traffic flow. It also means that worker safety can be protected as hand collection using brooms and shovels becomes a thing of the past.

All Bio-Smart absorbents contain a selection of safe and highly effective microbes that will ‘eat and digest’ oils and many types of hydrocarbons. Whilst this product can be disposed of to landfill safely, its disposal, once used, may be subject to any local regulations that pertain to the contaminant contained in the resultant waste

Absorbent 30™

Absorbent 30™ is an effective product for oil spill control and is made from a relatively heavy, fibrous material and is designed to encapsulate and recover spills that may occur in outdoor areas. Being heavier, Absorbent 30 is less effected by wind and so will not blow around in windy areas as do many light weight powdery absorbents.

The natural fibres in Absorbent 30 provide a very a effective outdoor absorbent that absorbs a wide variety of liquids including petroleum, hydraulic fluids, coolants, oils, fuels, solvents, cooking oils and sewage. Because of the strong ‘wicking effect’ of the fibres in Absorbent 30, hydrocarbons and other fluids sorbed by the product are encapsulated so they cannot readily leach back out and into the environment. By solidifying a liquid in this manner it is much easier to control and recover. Once absorbed, hydrocarbons are far less likely to form gasses and therefore the likelihood of an explosive event is reduced.

Absorbent 30 is also resistant to thermal attack and therefore will not burn readily. In fact in many instances whilst the product may have been used to absorb hydrocarbons such as diesel it is still very difficult to ignite and will tend smoulder at most. Regardless, normal Worksafe practices in relation to the correct handling of flammable liquids must be followed.

Absorbent 30 contains an array of safe, highly effective microbes that will ‘eat and digest’ many types of oil and hydrocarbons. The resultant by-product is converted to compost. Because Absorbent 30 is highly bioactive it is the product of choice for hydrocarbon spills that occur on non-paved surfaces (dirt and in the field), that may be difficult to fully recover.

This product is commonly used by companies whose primary need is for a for spill clean-up product after vehicle breakdowns that occur during field operations. Other users include armed services for field operations, tow truck operators, hydraulic repairers, fuel tanker operators and bulk fuel carriers such as the rail. Electricity generators find Absorbent 30 useful for the recovery of transformer oils.

Whilst these products can be disposed of to landfill safely it’s disposal, once used, may be subject to any local regulations that pertain to the contaminant contained in the resultant waste.
