We assist with clean-up.
Sorbent materials help with mopping up oil spills. They are generally used after major oil removal procedures to capture remaining traces of oils.
Absorbent vs. Adsorbent
They can be absorbent or adsorbent in nature. Absorbent materials soak up the oils. Adsorbent materials attract the oil molecules which cling to their surface rather than permeating the material. In many instances both types of sorbents are used during an oil spill clean-up.
While prevention is the best way to address oil leaks and spills, it is not always possible. Sorbents provide yet another method of minimizing the negative impacts of everything from small leaks to major oil spills.
