EcoSweep is manufactured from a special selection of Australian grown organic cellulose products. The natural fibrous materials are blended and processed to produce a range of absorbents that quickly absorb a wide variety of liquids. These include petroleum, oils, fuels, solvents, cooking oils, sewage, protein fluids and other messy liquids that could pollute or contaminate the work area.
EcoSweep is a unique in that its fine granules are hollow, meaning they rapidly encapsulate the liquids so there is no leaching back into the environment. Known as the “wicking effect”, once liquids are absorbed, they are consumed into capsules and cannot separate or drip. Because EcoSweep is inoculated with bioactive microbes, a bioremediation process occurs – the microbes literally ‘eat and digest’ oils and fuels – gradually converting into a soil conditioner within a few weeks. Many regions allow EcoSweep to be disposed of to landfill, but this should be checked according to your region’s local regulations.
EcoSweep passes USEPA Paint Filter Liquids Test Method 9095A, the standard recommended by EPA Operational Policy (Determinations: Schedule 7).
