THE BEST WAY TO CLEAN UP HAZARDOUS HYDROCARBON SPILLS

Peat Sorb™ is a lightweight non-biodegradable natural organic absorbent made from 100% Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss, exclusively manufactured by Peat Sorb™ 2011 Inc. Peat Sorb™ absorbs cleanly and completely on contact.

Peat Sorb™ offers numerous benefits:

  • Saves time.
  • Clean ups are exceptionally quick and easy.
  • Absorbs hydrocarbons instantly on land and on water.
  • Leaves no messy residue to clean up.
  • Socks can be used as a boom to contain spills and prevent seepage.
  • Suitable for manual or mechanical cleanup.

Reduce storage and disposal costs

  • Super absorbent so you use less - there is less to store and less to dispose.
  • 1 lb. (.45 kg) of loose Peat Sorb™ absorbs approximately 1 US gallon (4 litres) of oil.
  • 4 ft. socks absorb approximately 2 US gallons of oil.

Minimize environmental hazards

  • Peat Sorb™ is an all-natural product.
  • Peat Sorb™ is completely non-toxic in an unused state. Use recommended safety procedures for liquids being absorbed.
  • Powerful wicking action prevents the spread of hazardous liquids.
  • Peat Sorb™ can be used to solidify liquid wastes for safe transport of hazardous material, including PCBs, and as a fill-in around or over pack drums to prevent any serious leaks or environmental damage.

Enjoy safer, cleaner working conditions

  • Peat Sorb™ is an effective product in the suppression of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
  • Socks can be used as a barrier to absorb and contain leaks around machinery.
  • Peat Sorb™ loose product can be used as a sweeping compound to remove traces of oil on asphalt and concrete surfaces.
  • Non-abrasive and will not damage machinery.

Directions for loose product on land:

  • Spread the Peat Sorb™ upwind on the spill until all the oil is absorbed.
  • Pour onto the spill from a height of six inches (15cm) to avoid dispersion of absorbent.
  • Sweep up the oil-saturated Peat Sorb™ using a stiff broom, and place in a suitable container.

On water:

  • Spread manually or mechanically from upwind side of spill. Use screened forks, pool skimmers, rakes, skimmer shovels or suction devices to remove oil-saturated Peat Sorb™.
  • On flowing water; spread Peat Sorb™ upstream of a boom to absorb trapped oil.

Recommended disposal

Peat Sorb™ can be incinerated or disposed of in landfills. Dispose according to regulations in force at the spill location. Contact local authorities for advice and instructions. Save energy by using your used Peat Sorb™ as a source of fuel for burning! It will contribute about 15,000 - 15,500 BTU's per lb. and it will assist in the incineration of absorbed oils.
