EcoSweep Premium Bioactive Absorbent 10kg is manufactured from a special selection of Australian grown organic cellulose products. These natural fibrous materials are blended and processed to produce a range of absorbents that quickly absorb many liquids, including petroleum, oils, fuels, solvents, cooking oils, sewage, protein fluids and other messy liquids that could pollute or contaminate the work area. EcoSweep is unique in that its fine granules are hollow – which means that they rapidly encapsulate the liquids so they cannot leach back into the environment. Known as the “wicking effect” – once liquids are absorbed, they are consumed into the capsules and cannot separate or drip.
EcoSweep contains bioactive microbes for the bioremediation of hydrocarbons. These microbes literally ‘eat and digest’ oils so that the spent product is converted into a soil conditioner, within a period of time. Therefore many regions allow EcoSweep to be disposed of to landfill – but this should always be checked according to each region’s local regulations.
EcoSweep passes the USEPA Paint Filter Liquids Test – Method 9095A (the recommended standard from the Queensland EPA Operational Policy – Determinations: Schedule 7 under the Environmental Protection Regulation 1998).
Beware of inferior absorbents Don’t be fooled into using cheap absorbents such as kitty litter. Kitty Litter cannot be compared to EcoSweep because it is an ADsorbent and leaves an oily residue. You will end up using three times as much and still won’t have the same result. ONLY EcoSweep Absorbent leaves the floor clean and dry – FREE of hydrocarbon liquids and oily residue. And to prove it to you, we’ve posted the results here in this short video.
