The Power of EcoSweep Absorbent
The main Absorbent Powder is EcoSweep Premium Bioactive Absorbent. EcoSweep is manufactured from 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 is inoculated with bioactive microbes for the bioremediation of hydrocarbons – that literally ‘eat and digest’ oils so that the spent product is converted into a soil conditioner within a few weeks. Therefore many regions allow EcoSweep to be disposed of to landfill – but this should always be checked according to each region’s local regulations.
New Australian Industry Standard Colour Coding
In 2013 the AusSpill Association was formed in order to bring uniformity to Australian Spill Industry, and to develop a national set of standards for Spill Kits and associated products. As one of the founding members of the AusSpill Association, Ecospill has been part the development of the national colour coding for Australian Spill Kits. Similar to the standards applied to fire extinguishers, Spill Kits now feature distinct colour coding in order to uniformly identify their purpose and the types of spills each kit will absorb.
- Fuel and Oil Spill Kits: Lime Green Bin with a White Lid. Transport kits feature a Lime Green Bag with a White Top & White Straps
- General Purpose Spill Kits: Lime Green Bin with a Gray Lid. Transport kits feature a Lime Green Bag with a Gray Top & Gray Straps
- Chemical Hazchem Spill Kits: Lime Green Bin with a Yellow Lid. Transport kits feature a Lime Green Bag with a Yellow Top & Yellow Straps
As well as the new colour standard, other features such as minimum font sizes and uniform description wording all help to ensure that the Spill Kit and it’s liquid purpose are visible from 10 metres away. Ecospill is pleased to offer all our spill kit range in accordance with the new national standards. If you have an existing spill kits that are not to the national standard, we offer a bin/bag upgrade program at a very cost effective rate.
