Typical critical path areas that require rapid response

  • Open Port or Break Water areas, Canals, Marinas, Recreational Waterways (Lochs & Lakes), Boat yards & Slipways – skirted or non-skirted range of short or long-term SORBxt skirted & non-skirted booms
  • Open water quick reaction timelines on – petrol, diesel, oil plumes
  • Areas close to drainage systems external includes large expanses of concrete run-off (exceptional SORBxt adhesive based drain covers)
  • Hydraulic oil leaks from craneage, forklifts & shunter vehicles
  • Open ground port rail tracks (unique SORBxt rail mat)
  • Loading bays, parking bays, shunting yards
  • Large warehousing expanses; hydraulic ramps, loading bays, walkways
  • Main thoroughfares, fork-lift aisles & warehousing
  • In localised walkways varied substrates; ceramic, concrete, painted, resin based screed surfaces
  • Equipment maintenance areas – inspection pits, holding compounds, charging stations

Potential Spill Materials

  • Engine oils, Petrol, Diesel, Brake fluid, Hydraulic oils, Ad-blue
  • Oils & lubricants (high grade hydraulic oils, oil-based cooling agents, gels & pastes)

Traditional Spill Response

  • Skimmers & polystyrene float assisted booms (propensity to leach)
  • Traditional oil & chemical grades of spill granules – they do not work in water or highly water saturated spill areas
  • Longer periods of disruption, diversion & substantial disposal
  • Various grades of booms & spill pads
  • Slow levels of absorption – drag through of traditional granules during absorbtion
  • Spills can take many hours to be properly cleared & concluded
  • Post clearance substrate cleanliness varies widely – Concrete, Block paving & Asphalt

Sorb Response Absorbent

  • 100% organic material, Non-toxic for human beings, animals and environment
  • environmentally friendly
  • Light 7.5kg bag absorbs 33ltrs of all oils, paints, acids, alkaline & polymers
  • Lightweight material & packaging allows for rapid easy response
  • Absorbs all oils & hydrocarbons from water surface, enables fast efficient skimming without taking up water itself
  • Multi-purpose absorbent – eradicates requirement for multiple products for clearances
  • Fast & efficient – enables immediate control of a spill, contained & eliminated within minutes rather than hours or days
  • Post Clean – Superior surface safety & cleanliness achieved by fast efficient clearance
  • Tested & Proven – 97% surface grip after an eradicated spill – independently tested & proven on Asphalt (German MPA Testing Authority) excellent results on Concrete, Ceramics, Painted Walkways
  • Waste Disposal – dramatically less material (kg/lb/ltr) to dispose of, organic base matter enables more diverse final disposal options & routes
