Just the Facts......

Not only is Oil Sponge more absorbent than most competing absorbents (up to 8 times more than clay) which greatly reduces your disposal costs, but Oil Sponge+ contains a microbial package that has the capability to degrade a broad spectrum of hydrocarbons, including light hydrocarbons, benzenes, diesels, petrol, BTEX, and related fuels found in contaminated soil and water. 

Is Oil Sponge AB+ Safe For The Environment?

Oil Sponge was developed to restore the environment to its natural state. When used properly Oil Sponge prevents collateral damage by minimizing the migration of spilled fluids. Oil Sponge+ contains a specific microbial and nutrient package that aids in the bio remediation of contaminated soil.

How fast does Oil Sponge absorb an oil spill?

A lot depends on the type of petroleum fluid being absorbed. Due to the unique fiber structure of Oil Sponge, absorption will start immediately. Incidental spills on a hard surface can be completely absorbed within a few minutes.

Is Oil Sponge the only product with a dedicated microbial package?

Other products claim have microbial packages or systems that enhance microbial activity, but only Oil Sponge physically adds an ATCC certified blend of hydrocarbon digesting microbes and an essential nutrient package.

What is the shelf life of the bacteria in Oil Sponge products?

This is a two-part answer. First, the bacteria package in all Oil Sponge products is guaranteed for a year, provided that it is unopened and not introduced to moisture or water. Second, if the bacteria are introduced to water or moisture it will become active, use up a readily available food source, then generally revert back to a status form or mortality may set in.

What nutrients naturally occur in Oil Sponge?

Ammonium Sulphate is produced during the processing of the raw material. Ammonium sulphate is now the most widely used synthetic nitrogen fertilizer. It is manufactured in large quantities from ammonia(NH3), produced by the Haber process, and sulphuric acid (H2SO4), produced by the contact process. Conversion Formula 2NH3 + H2SO4→(NH4)2SO4.
