OIL SPONGE is made from reclaimed cotton fibers, nut pith and hydrocarbon eating microbes. OIL SPONGE absorbs oil based liquids and most chemicals, while repelling water. OIL SPONGE encapsulates and prevents leaching of contaminated liquids up to saturation point. Makes disposal of contaminated materials safer and easier. OIL SPONGE is cost effective as it absorbs up to 8 times more than “Clay” type products.
