SorbEater™: The Premier Super Absorber

Redefining the standards of spill cleanup, SorbEater™ boasts the most effective oil recovery ratio known today, ensuring minimal wastage and significantly reducing disposal costs.

What is SorbEater™?

SorbEater™ is a groundbreaking synthetic super-absorbent designed to tackle hydrocarbon spills or contamination with unparalleled efficiency. From petrol, diesel, and crude oil to solvents, paints, and even certain acids, its absorption capabilities remain unmatched.

Key Attributes of SorbEater™

  • Drop and Activate: The SorbEater bag comes omplete with bag, SorbEater, and nutrients ready to be dropped in liquid to be activated.
  • Hydrophobic Properties: SorbEater is the sole product that perpetually floats on water. This ensures effective handling of waterborne spills and other specialized challenges such as bilges, separation tanks, swamps, and grease traps.

  • Eco-Friendly Solution: With 85% of its composition coming from recycled (inert) materials, SorbEater turns potential landfill waste into a solution. Its development is a proactive response to the devastating impact on wetlands and forests caused by the mining of organic absorbents. 100% Biodegradable product and bag.

  • Non-Leaching Capability: SorbEater’s unmatched absorption ability and distinctive cellular structure mean it firmly holds onto what it absorbs.

  • Safety First: Being inert, SorbEater is safe for deployment even in ecologically sensitive zones.

  • Rapid Absorption: Its swift wicking action makes SorbEater the go-to product for prompt spill cleanups.

  • Reusability: Not only can SorbEater be compressed to extract and sell the absorbed oil, but it can also be used a second time. After its lifecycle, it can be pelletized into a fuel source, offering high energy output with minimal residue.

  • Aid for Sea Bird Rehabilitation: We’re committed to the environment and its inhabitants. We donate SorbEater to assist in cleaning oiled birds more efficiently and with reduced stress, thereby increasing survival rates.

  • Emergency Response: Can be employed during large-scale environmental accidents involving Solvents, Paints, Resins, and other hazardous liquids.

  • Food and Medical Industry: Efficient in absorbing spills like Blood, Molasses, and Edible Oils which are common in food processing units and medical facilities.

  • Automotive and Mechanical: Perfect for addressing spills of Brake Fluid, Transformer Oils, and Hydraulic Fluid in workshops, factories, or accident sites.

  • Water Treatment and Management: Beneficial for unique water problem areas such as bilges, separation tanks, swamps, and grease traps.

  • Environmental Cleanup: Due to its eco-friendly nature, it’s an ideal choice for remediation projects aimed at preserving or restoring natural habitats affected by pollutants.

SorbEater™ in Action

1. The Initial Crisis

This image captures the initial crisis—a significant oil spill has occurred at a depot. The oil, dark and slick, is spreading rapidly across the concrete ground. The sheer volume of the spill exemplifies the potential environmental and operational hazards associated with such accidents.

2. The Response

Depot staff are seen actively responding to the spill by scattering SorbEater granules over the affected area. Given SorbEater’s unique properties, the synthetic super-absorbent begins to effectively contain and absorb the oil, turning a shiny, slippery hazard into a manageable solid state.

3. The Results

The aftermath of the crisis is portrayed in this image. What was once a liquid oil spill is now transformed into solid waste thanks to SorbEater. Workers are seen using shovels to pick up the SorbEater-laden oil, which now resembles dark dirt or sediment. The focus here is on responsible disposal. The fact that this waste can be safely and efficiently managed—and even potentially reused as a fuel source or for other applications—underscores the dual benefits of SorbEater: immediate spill response and long-term environmental consideration.
