AN ECOLOGICAL SOLUTION FOR SOAKING UP OIL
OilDeg and OilCatcher are patented Finnish innovations used for oil spill respons, soaking up and biodegrading oil and similar hydrocarbons. The products can be used on small oil spills as well as on large land masses.
OilDeg and OilCatcher are safe, ecological and effective oil repellents for soaking up oil or similar contaminants from nature and for the biological purification of the environment. The products are suitable for cleaning both land and water areas.
Patented OilDeg is a safe, ecological and effective product for soaking up and biodegrading oil, other similar hydrocarbons and organic pollutants released into nature, enabling oil spills and contaminated soils to be cleaned up rapidly. The surface active properties of OilDeg control the oil spill from spreading whereas the surface catalytic properties and the nutrients provided in the product promote the biodecomposition of oil by the naturally occurring microbes in composting. OilDeg's advantage over conventional cleaning methods is that it can be used directly on a contaminated site, instead of transporting the soil to treatment plants.
OilDeg activates the rapid biodegradation of hydrocarbons and can be utilized in composts and soil, as well as on the surface of water. The applications may vary from small oil spills to water into treatment of hundreds of tonnes of contaminated soil. OilDeg is the result of extensive laboratory and field tests, and has been proven to biodegrade 90% of crude oil within three months.
OilCatcher is specifically designed for collecting oil and similar pollutants released into waterways. It enables the effective prevention and limitation of damage to nature caused by oil spills on the ground and in the water. OilCatcher contains OilDeg, which significantly improves absorption and activates the biodegradation of the pollutant immediately.
OilCatcher is a safe, ecological and effective product for soaking up and biodegrading oil, other similar hydrocarbons and organic pollutants released into nature. It improves the filtration of contaminated water by gelifying the oil. The product collects oil on the surface of the water into smaller ponds, leaving the rest of the surface clear. This minimises the harmful effects of the oil film on nature and facilitates the clean-up of the oil spill.
