PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT FROM CONTAMINATION USING ABSORBENTS

From the loss of energy resources that could come with oil spillages, to the damage they can often cause to our environment; there are several reasons why a company should take extra measures to ensure that they clean up after themselves and do what they can to protect our planet.

Fortunately for those in a business where this may be an issue (for example, in the fuel transportation industry), there are a few effective oil spill recovery methods.

CLEANING UP AFTER HAZARD SPILLS

The downside that most sites are likely to find is that the process of cleaning up after hazardous oil spills isn‘t often a simple task. While this can sometimes depend on certain factors (such as the thickness or amount spilt), treating oil slicks is something that will often take a lot of time, effort and money. Despite this, cleansing is vital to the environment – and therefore important to many companies working in this industry.

For this reason and more, taking the time to ensure that all oil and chemical spillages are cleaned up is essential and if necessary erect a crowd control barrier around the spill to prevent access.

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT FROM CONTAMINATION USING ABSORBENTS

From mechanical methods, to chemical treatments; there are a number of things that a business could do to clear their oil spillages. One particular solution for oil spill recovery are absorbent materials – and in most cases, a company will find a multitude of ways that this technique could work for their needs. Often they need to bring in specialised contractors and buy spill containment and clean up products such as spill kits from a specialist supplier like Stratex in Australia.

Commonly, they’re used to help contain larger amounts of overflow, but they can often be utilised for smaller amounts of oil that are more difficult to treat with other methods.

Aside from this, one of the main benefits of this technique is that these materials are often fairly inexpensive and easy to purchase in high amounts – making them ideal for a business dealing with a larger scale issue.

HOW SUCCESSFUL ARE ABSORBENTS?

In general, there are a number of things that a company may want to consider when purchasing absorbents to ensure that they find the right ones for their needs. A few factors that many businesses should consider if they want the ideal absorbents include:

  • How much oil they can absorb
  • Biodegradability
  • Strength and durability
  • Reusability
  • Availability and cost

Some businesses may have other requirements, but these are often a good place to start when looking for the best oil absorbents.

In most cases, there’s quite a difference between the 3 types of absorbent materials; organic vegetable products, inorganic mineral absorbents and synthetic materials. Each one has their own advantages and disadvantages, which is why doing proper research on the different options available can often be so crucial to a firm in the oil industry.
