HOW IT WORKS

2. We Launder

HOW IT WORKS

3. You Save

Save money.  Save waste.  Save time.

Customers reduce their oil absorbent cost 15% – 30% by eliminating disposal fees. On average, customers also divert over 3,400 lbs of solid waste from landfills each year.
 
And with our managed program, employees spend less time ordering and replacing absorbents. This translates to more time in production.

Spill Absorbent Products for Industrial Use

Our proprietary line of launderable oil absorbents can be used for engine oil, transmission fluid, metalworking fluids and oils, coolant, hydraulic fluid, and other non-hazardous industrial process fluids.

SorbIts® are extremely absorbent and will not tear or fray like single-use absorbents.
