GATORÂ® - Premium Absorbent and Bioremediation Product
Oil GatorÂ® is a chemically modified plant fiber containing
all of the necessary ingredients (nitrogen, sulfur and phosphorous) to enhance
biodegradation of hydrocarbons by indigenous bacteria. These naturally occurring
bacteria, known as microbes, are completely safe to humans and animals, and will
not harm the environment. When activated by the addition of moisture, the microbes
reproduce and utilize hydrocarbons as a food source.
Oil GatorÂ® works to bioremediate oil spills; as it "eats" hydrocarbons, it releases
carbon dioxide and water. When available hydrocarbons are depleted, any remaining
Oil GatorÂ® will bioremediate itself. .
Under normal conditions, Oil GatorÂ® bacteria multiply rapidly and hydrocarbon
degradation of 40 percent per month can be expected; however, under ideal conditions,
degradation can be as high as 80 percent per month. Full clean up can usually
be accomplished in 120 days. Utilizing a special protocol, Oil Gator Â® will even
The Product is odorless and lightweight, and if kept dry it has unlimited shelf
Oil GatorÂ® also works as an absorbent, outperforming other sorbents in the market
place. In fact, Oil GatorÂ® absorbs up to ten times more hydrocarbons than other
sorbents, such as calcined clay. Moreover, Oil GatorÂ® is environmentally friendly,
doesnâ€™t leave a slick surface, and is free of polluting components.
Oil GatorÂ® absorbs many different chemicals, including transformer oils, oil paints
and wood preserving chemicals. It is cost effective and can be taken to a landfill
or incinerated (in accordance with local regulations)(see â€œLiquids Absorbedâ€�).
Unlike other absorbents, Oil GatorÂ® actually encapsulates contaminants, trapping
the molecules inside its fibers. This is critical after a rainstorm, for example,
to prevent leaching of contaminants into the water table and destroying sensitive
ecosystems. Encapsulation also aids in the bioremediation process, as the fibers
lock in hydrocarbons, allowing the microbes to work. Even when wet, Oil Gator
Â® will seek to absorb hydrocarbons instead of water.
When safety is an issue, fire departments and emergency response units call on
Oil GatorÂ® to secure the site. On dangerous spills, properly applied Oil GatorÂ®
forms a matrix that suppresses vapors, reducing the risk posed by fire.
