Petrochemicals / Pharmaceuticals

Typical critical path areas that require rapid response

  • Petrochemical – Manufacturing from fossil fuels Olefins (Ethylene, Propylene, Butadiene) Aromatics (Benzene, Toluene, Xylene)
  • Compressor stations, Engineering workshops, High pressure water jetting bays
  • Waste management compounds, Walkways inside processing units, Bunds & sumps
  • Lagoon offloading, Outfalls to waterways
  • Substrate types – Concrete (rough or finished), asphalt, ceramic/quarry tile, painted surfaces
  • Pharmaceutical Manufacturing – the isolation and purification of compounds, chemical synthesis, and computer-aided drug design
  • Protection of work areas around; raw material holding areas, mixing vessels, stills, separators, centrifuges pipe & valve networks, heat exchangers, drainage systems & walkways polymers, paints

Potential spill materials in both industry sectors

  • Production and manufacturing material spills solvents & hydrocarbon derived solutions of all types (pre-post refining), acids, alkaline & polymer-based mixes
  • Effluents – hot & cold mixes of waste & by products
  • Oils & lubricants (high grade hydraulic oils, oil-based cooling agents, gels & pastes)
  • Paints – Single / Twin pack epoxy, polyester, polyurethanes & emulsions

Traditional Spill Response

  • Traditional oil & chemical grades of spill granules
  • Longer periods of disruption, diversion & substantial disposal
  • Various grades of spill pads
  • Slow levels of absorption
  • Spills can take many hours to be properly cleared & concluded – drag through & dispersion of granules common place
  • Levels of floor/substrate cleanliness post clean-up can vary widely

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
