OIL RESIST

Chemical-free, widely applicable oil adsorbent powder for removing and cleaning up oil contamination from solid surfaces and water, as well as for neutralizing acidic surface water.

 

General information

 

Our everyday life could hardly be possible without petroleum products; products derived from oil are present everywhere from transport to clothing. However, petroleum production, processing and transport pose countless hazards to the environment, and thereby to mankind. Oil disasters arise primarily from human carelessness but also from devastating natural forces, causing severe and long-lasting damage to our living environment, economy, and society.

 

Harmless to the environment

 

TecDry owns and uses a fully ecological technology which does not contain any artificial or hazardous substances that harm the environment.

100% hydrophobic and highly thermostable substance in action

 

The product is based on the patented TECDRY technology and manufactured according to unique know-how. The oleophilic porous structure of the OIL RESIST powder strongly draws and quickly adsorbs the oil spill contamination. The captured and encapsulated oil does not sink but floats on the water surface and is thus easy to collect. This is attributed to the low specific weight and the special hydrophobic properties of OIL RESIST that separate the contaminant from the water at all times. Not only does OIL RESIST collect, neutralize and clean up visible oil pollution from the water but it fully removes all the invisible hazardous and undesirable components of the spilled oil as well. (Known as TPH, i. e. Total Petrol Hydrocarbons, which refers collectively to the entire spectrum of hydrocarbons to be found potentially in crude oil that are present in various combinations in refined oil products as well.)

 

Due to the exceptional thermal stability of OIL RESIST, oil adsorbed in the powder is very difficult to ignite, allowing for safe storage and transport. However, the encapsulated and thus neutralized oil ‒ a soft solid substance formed by the mixture of the oil and the applied OIL RESIST powder in a short time ‒ itself is utile and valuable. It can be burned in appropriately equipped and certified incinerators as it makes an excellent fuel of high calorific value. OIL RESIST remains environmentally sustainable throughout its life cycle, including all the components, the substance’s behavior in application, and the end product. If large volumes of the same type of oil are neutralized by OIL RESIST (in a manufacturing plant or in the wake of a natural disaster), the oil can be fully recovered from the adsorbed state and reused subsequently. In environmental remediation, the unused portion of the oil adsorbent powder can be retrieved separately by a sieve.

 

Complete green solution to control oil pollution

 

Made of only natural ingredients, the OIL RESIST powder completely neutralizes oil contamination due its capacity to adsorb, encapsulate and safely collect the most diverse variety of oils and oil derivatives (vegetable, mineral, synthetic and their combinations). It offers a reliable, comprehensive, environment-friendly solution for reducing and eliminating oil pollution, as it is equally applicable for capturing and cleaning up oil spills of different volumes in water, soil and virtually all kinds of solid surfaces.

 

Oil contaminated water can be turned into clean water, polluted soil can be remediated to become fertile again, surfaces like stone or concrete can be cleaned from spillages to counter the hazards and impacts. Due to its extremely wide utility and high efficiency, OIL RESIST can be used across the whole range of oil spill prevention, response and remediation operations for many purposes in different environments and industries.

 

Areas of application

 

  • Oil refineries for neutralizing ground water contamination by crude oil and derivatives
  • Efficient cleaning of oil barrels, containers, vessels, vehicles and equipment
  • Neutralizing oil pollution by ships (inside and outside of the ship)
  • Oil spill incident control and emergency response to tanker damage on sea
  • Cleaning up groundwater in mines (to minimize the hazard of flammability that may cause explosions)
  • Handling of dripping, leakage and spillage of oil in factories, assembly lines, repair shops
  • Collecting and cleaning up spilled oil, gasoline and similar materials at filling stations (gas stations, oil stations, etc.)
  • Capturing and neutralizing oil spills in shipyards
  • Private usage for solving the issue of dripping oil in driveways, parking lots
  • Containing and neutralizing oil spills at accident scenes for fire safety and environmental reasons by fire brigades, the police or any other professional emergency response team
  • As part of an emergency first aid kit for use in case of spillage to be carried and handled by truck or bus drivers
  • Cleaning industrial wastewater from oil and fats (e.g. in leather factories, meat processing and butcheries, etc.)
  • Cleaning up and neutralizing spilled oil in vegetable oil manufacturing plants
  • Remediation of oil contaminated soil for agricultural cultivation
  • Remediation of oil polluted industrial properties and brownfield sites
  • Cleaning pools and ponds from oil spills (e.g. sunscreen)
  • Car wash stations
  • Larger industrial facilities (machine manufacturing, automobile factories, assembly lines, etc.)
  • Car racing tracks or racing circuit lanes, repair workshops, pit lane boxes, garages
  • Airports and hangars
