OIL GATOR® - Premium Absorbent and Bioremediation Product

 
Oil Gator® 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 Gator® works to bioremediate oil spills; as it "eats" hydrocarbons, it releases carbon dioxide and water. When available hydrocarbons are depleted, any remaining Oil Gator® will bioremediate itself. .

Under normal conditions, Oil Gator® 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 ® will even bioremediate PCBs.

The Product is odorless and lightweight, and if kept dry it has unlimited shelf life.

Oil Gator® also works as an absorbent, outperforming other sorbents in the market place. In fact, Oil Gator® absorbs up to ten times more hydrocarbons than other sorbents, such as calcined clay. Moreover, Oil Gator® is environmentally friendly, doesn’t leave a slick surface, and is free of polluting components.

Oil Gator® 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 “Liquids Absorbed�).

Unlike other absorbents, Oil Gator® 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 ® will seek to absorb hydrocarbons instead of water.

When safety is an issue, fire departments and emergency response units call on Oil Gator® to secure the site. On dangerous spills, properly applied Oil Gator® forms a matrix that suppresses vapors, reducing the risk posed by fire.
