Organic, Hydro-Carbon Absorbent

Absorbetech is an oleophilic absorbent and a bioremediation product in the form of an easy to use solid, non-toxic, free flowing non-abrasive granular material and its formulation is such that it demonstrates bio-remediation abilities across a broad range of hydrocarbon based pollutants

Absorbetech is a 100% natural product derived from a blend of plant matter. As such it does not add to the non-biodegradable waste stream nor harm the environment in which it is applied since it will itself decompose rapidly

Absorbetech’s efficacy is based on four facets;

  • Firstly, Absorbetech’s absorption characteristics are of an extremely high standard and in tests conducted in our own testing facility Absorbetech showed equal or better performance than more expensive imported products.
  • Secondly, in order to achieve a homogeneous dispersion of the microbe mass throughout the product, the natural count is supplemented by the addition of HUM bugs (Hydrocarbon Utilising Mico-organisms). These include but are not limited to, penicillium, fusarium, mycorrhiza and many others.
  • Thirdly, Absorbetech offers the aforementioned communities of micro organisms in a actively growing state with a source of nutrients such that organisms with an optimal metabolic rate (rather than dormant bodies) can be applied to contaminants
  • Finally, the physical structure of Absorbetech is such that despite tilling and blending activities that may occur in some land remediation activities the active components remain in contact with the host nutrient material. Moreover, the host material readily encapsulates and retains contaminants. The structure also acts to regulate moisture content towards the optimal level for micro-organism activity

Hence Absorbetech and absorbed hydrocarbons (including many contaminants found in waste streams such as PCB’s, some metals, arsenic, pesticides, cyanides etc) may be bio-remediated by the fungi and bacteria contained within Absorbetech. This is a cheaper, eco friendly alternative to other treatment methods especially excavation and disposal.

Oleophilic and hydrophobic properties allow Absorbetech‘s effective use in I on water

Upon application Absorbetech suppresses vapours and odours thereby minimising associated risks of proliferation, explosion and combustion. Absorbetech does not carry electrostatic charge.

Absorbetech embodies your organisation’s concern for environmental and sustainable issues since;

  • Our product is sustainably produced from cultivated, farmed plant types which are themselves integral to pre-existing industries.
  • Remediation techniques (and particularly bio-remediation) are a more sustainable means of dealing with a legacy of contamination than landfilling or incineration. Soil itself is a valuable resource that should be reused. (re; UK Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution: “Sustainable use of soil” report)

Absorbetech is packed in 10 kg plastic bags containing compressed product. 80 bags are shrink-wrapped per pallet and 10 pallets are packed in to a 6 metre container.
