What is PèTROZORB
PèTROZORB is a range of products that offer rapid absorption of oil and chemicals. The range also assists in the remediation of environmental spills from hydrocarbon and chemicals, both on water and land. It is a field-proven industrial absorbent that is an economical, fast-acting solution to an environmental problem that could otherwise take years to resolve.
The PèTROZORB Range consists of four types of organic fibre absorbents, used for the absorption of hazardous environmental spills with the added advantage of bioremediation of contaminated soil.
- PèTROZORB – BRONZE: Organic Blend Absorbent
- PèTROZORB – SILVER: Organics Blend Absorbent (with added oil degrading microbes)
- PèTROZORB – GOLD: Coco Peat Absorbent
- PèTROZORB – PLATINUM: Peat Moss Absorbent
How does PèTROZORB work?
PèTROZORB absorbents make use of a matrix of capillaries that flow over the surface area of the hydrocarbon or chemical spill. The high surface tension within these capillaries enables the organic fibres within the product range to hold between 5 to 14 times its own weights in liquids. This gives it the ability to absorb spills which have occurred over vast areas on land and water. It will not leach or discharge absorbed pollutants, making it clean an easy to handle. The PèTROZORB range’s high vapour suppression capacity reduces combustion vapours, eliminating the chance of explosion. The entire PèTROZORB product range is non-abrasive, non-toxic, non-leaching and non-carcinogenic. In its natural state is already biodegraded. It can also be used by anybody – it doesn’t require any protective clothing or specialised training technicians to handle and dispose of the product.
