Oil Absorbent Blankets

How to Clean an Oil Spill in Water with Oil Spill Blankets

Oil Spill BlanketThe oil absorbent blanket installs along the shoreline or beach to absorb oil as it washes up to land. The flexible design floats with the current and traps oil as water passes through it. The oil spill blanket is made of one of the few materials that absorb oil from water, both emulsified and non-emulsified oils as well as other hydrocarbons.

The oil absorbent blanket features a total capacity of 3.9 gallons and a large 10' x 5' area to increase the extent of coastline coverage. The 25' tethers and two 36" wooden stake anchors make sure the oil spill blanket doesn't go beyond the affected area.

Kraken Oil Containment Boom from GEI Works is another great option for oil spill containment and clean up.

Microbes in an Oil Spill Beach Clean Up

Oil Spill MicrobesAn option for your oil spill blanket includes microbe infusion. Microbes are nature's way of dispersing oil seepage and spills. On their own, microbes provide a slow, natural healing process. When added to the oil absorbent blanket, they help speed up the rate of bio-remediation in the contaminated area. These microbes are on the EPA National Contingency List, so there no worries about your oil spill blankets hurting the environment or running afoul of federal regulations.
