Know Your Risks and How to Deal with a Spill Safely

You must conduct a risk assessment of your operations to determine the types and volumes of liquids you may spill, and what type of absorbents and spill kits you’ll need to clean them up safely and cost-effectively.

Use the following charts to determine the best Enretech absorbents or spill kits for your particular workplace.

Spills on Land, or Shorelines:
 
Use Enretech-1 to bioremdiate the contamination in-situ, or excavate the contaminmated soil and treat via ex-situ biofarm.
 
Oil Spills on Water:
 
Absorb floating oil using cellusorb as a loose particulate, or in the form of "oil only" absorbent socks, pillows or booms. For larger spill areas, use "Oil Only" cotton pads instead of loose particulate cellusorb.
