Environmentally Friendly Industial Absorbents and Stabilizers

Industrial AbsorbentEcosorb International manufactures spill control products, industrial absorbents, sludge stabilization, and environmental remediation absorbents from recycled cellulose. The lightweight and highly absorbent K-Sorb product line is used for oil spill cleanup, sludge stabilization, and liquid waste solidification prior to transportation and disposal.

Sludge Stabilization

Sludge Stabilization / DewateringMunicipal Biosolids are often rich in nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus, and contain valuable microbes. The EPA 40 CFR Part 503, Standards for the Use and Disposal of Sewage Sludge requires that wastewater solids be processed or stabilized before they can be beneficially used. K-Sorb® fiber products are ideal for sludge stabilization and liquid waste solidification projects. Lightweight and highly absorbent, K-Sorb passes TCLP and paint filter testing, has a high heat content (over 8,400 Btu/lb), and burns to less than 3% ash. In summary, no other product available can absorb 13 times its weight in free liquid while providing the same level of disposal freedom and envrionmental protection as K-Sorb fiber.

Dewatering

Ecosorb International helps wastewater treatment facilities dewater sludge faster and with up to 40 percent less discharge to the environment. By conditioning sludge with EcoFiber, plants maximize the performance of dewatering devices (particularly belt filter presses) thereby reducing the weight/volume of the filter cake, improving its quality, and significantly reducing disposal costs.

Chemical Spills

Chemical Spill clean upOn land or on water, K-Sorb® is the answer for spill control and cleanup. The K-Sorb Universal line absorbs hydrocarbon, chemical, and aqueous liquids alike. It outperforms clay, corn cob, diatomaceous earth, and vermiculite absorbents. Greater absorbency results in reduced absorbent requirement, manpower, and waste generated requiring costly disposal. The K-Sorb Hydrophobic line is more economical than polypropylene, peat, and other hydrophobic cellulose absorbents. It is an excellent selection for absorbing spills floating in sumps, pits, and lagoons, or offshore when used as a boom, sock, or pillow filling.

All Natural Oil Booms

Ecosorb's all natural oil booms, Eco Pro-Oil Boom™ All Natural Fiber constructed with K-Sorb® Hydrophobic Fiber is ideal for oil spills in water. Eco Pro-Oil Boom™ removes contaminants from shores, lakes, rivers, ports, marinas, lagoons, ponds, and oceans. These all natural oil booms absorb 13 times its weight in oils, making it much more cost efficient that other cellulose absorbents.

  • Contained absorbent makes cleanup quick and easy.
  • Cellulose filler is hydrophobic for containing and absorbing oil-based spills in a variety of environments.
  • Recycled content is ideal when "Green" products are desired or required.
  • Higher capacity of absorbency over Polypropylene Boom.
  • 95% Post-Consumer Recycled Cellulose.
  • Can Be incinerated.

Environmentally Friendly

Environmentally Friendly Industrial AbsorbentEcosorb International manufactures EcoFiber from recycled waste fiber (over 98 percent by weight) that otherwise would contribute to the growing demand on a limited supply of landfill space. Environmental conservation is exponentially compounded as EcoFiber is used to condition wastewater sludge for maximum dewater ability, in effect, reducing the amount of waste discharged to the environment by up to 40 percent.

Save Money

Save MoneyEcosorb's Industrial Absorbent are not just environmentally friendly, they're budget friendly. K-Sorb products absorb more times its weight than competing cellulose absorbents.
