OIL GATOR is produced from recycled, chemically modified cellulosic fibers. It contains all the necessary ingredients (nitrogen, sulphur and phosphorous) to enhance biodegradation of hydrocarbons by indigenous bacteria.
OIL GATOR meets all OSHA requirements and is biodegradable. It is not WHMIS regulated. When activated by the addition of moisture, the indigenous bacteria are furnished with ideal growth conditions, within which they proliferate and rapidly utilize the available hydrocarbon as a food source.
OIL GATOR’s powerful wicking action acts a physical emulsifier by actually extracting hydrocarbons from less absorptive material. OIL GATOR encapsulates the fine droplets making the hydrocarbon available to the bacteria as a food source. It is nonabrasive and will not harm machinery.
OIL GATOR absorbs and encapsulates hydrocarbons from the surface of land and water. When applied correctly, it will completely absorb toxins preventing them from leaching into the soils or into underground aquifers.
OIL GATOR can be incinerated and will contribute 7,000 BTU's per pound with less than 3% ash. It may be placed into landfills, or non-hazardous oil field waste land farm. The nature of the hydrocarbon absorbed determines the appropriate disposal method.
The Environmentally Friendly Alternative- Not harmful to the environment- No depletion of natural resources. The best granular organic absorbent product available. Superior performance and biodegradable. The lower cost solution for more efficient clean up of land, water or hard surface spills and for restoring contaminated sites.
All natural: annual renewable resource - 100% Biodegradeable Non-toxic: - No adverse effect on plants or animals Ultra-absorbent: up to 6 plus times its weight with extremely low leaching (less than 1%) Enhances bioremediation of petroleum hydrocarbons (indigenous microbes) Lower disposable cost: landfill may accept (disposal subject to federal and local regulations); incineration yields very low ash content (less than 2%) High BTU rating: (7500 BTU) Not soluble in water: hydrophobic, will float for long periods for easy recovery of spills on water and useful for filtration of liquid contaminants in water Weight/bulk density: 6-7 lbs per cubic foot Particle size: standard Bin 3= minus 1/8' Color: light brown Packaging:2 or 3 cubic foot paper bags
