Environmental Spill Response

.

Typical Problems with Response to Spill

  • Amount of material used for storage and usage.
  • Clean up materials become hazardous waste (drives up costs and increases risk for litigation)
  • Contamination is simply moved from one place to another (never actually resolve the problem, just contaminate another area)
  • Ineffective products (most spill products are made from the same material no matter the manufacturer and are not very effective)

Our Solutions to Typical Spill Response Problems

ReAbsorbent™ Foam

One of our primary technologies is the ReAbsorbent. The Elephant Sponge was proven to outperform all competitive products. It was reusable with pick-up ratios of almost a 1 quart per foot of material. This video shows the effectiveness and historical longevity of a great technology. Our updated technology is the ReAbsorbent™. These foams are an technological advancement in production and formulation but retain the same superior performance as its predecessor. Below is an original video of our foam technology used in a major spill clean up.

Problem and Solution Table

 

Problem

 I. Oil leaking on open water


 

Solution

Disperse and increase natural biodegration before reaches other resources 


Completely remove oil and 
sheen from water

 

Technology

Saf-Ron Gold Dispersant™: EPA NCP-Listed dispersant with low toxicity and most effective on heavy crude

ReAbsorbent™: Hydrocarbon recovery foams attract oil and rejects water; reusable material (recycle or reuse recovered oil)

 

II. Protecting shoreline and 
 coastline resources from oil

 

Completely remove oil and 
sheen from water before it reaches other resources

 

ReAbsorbent™: Hydrocarbon recovery foams attract oil and rejects water; reusable material (recycle or reuse recovered oil)

 

 III. Contaminated marshes, 
 estuaries, and wetlands

 

Completely remove oil and 
sheen from water

 

ReAbsorbent™ hydrocarbon recovery foams attract oil and rejects water; reusable material (recycle or reuse recovered oil)

 

IV. Contaminated rocks, soil, or 

water 

 

Completely remove oil and 
sheen from water  


Wash with non-hazardous LA/FL 
state approved bioremediation 
agent 

 

ReAbsorbent™ hydrocarbon recovery foams attract oil and rejects water; reusable material (recycle or reuse recovered oil)

Gold EnviroRemediant™: Liquid Remedial Agent that degrades hazardous organics in water/soil on site 

 

V. Recovered hazardous oils 
 and oily water mix

 

Recover Energy source by converting oil waste into burnable 
fuel

Dispose of Oil Waste and mitigate future contamination risk

 

Waste Oil To Energy™(W.O.T.E.): Converts recovered oil to burnable fuel at 8600 BTUs


Waste Eliminator™: Converts oil to non-hazardous waste that bioremediates in 3 months

 

VI. Recovery of material 
hazardous waste creation

 

Use recovery materials that 
minimize amount of material 
needed to remove oil (efficient) 

Use materials that can wring out recovered hazardous waste 
(effective) 

Use materials that biodegrade, are burnable, or considered non-hazardous after recovery use

 

ReAbsorbent™: Reusable 25 times; 
2 gal per 24” pad, per use; 
3 pads cleanup per 100 gal spill 

ReAbsorbent™: Reusable 25 times; 
2 gal per 24”pad, per use; 
3 pads cleanup per 100 gal spill 

Waste Eliminator™: Biodegrade; Waste Oil To Energy™: Burnable; ReAbsorbent: Non-hazardous



Oil Spill Dispersant 

Saf-Ron Gold Dispersant is a US EPA NCP listed and Singapore Maritime Authority listed dispersant that is non-hazardous to people, animals, and environment.


Technology Description

Gold does not work or react as other dispersants where the expectation is to break oils apart into smaller particles only.  SF-Gold breaks the organic bonds of the oil/hydrocarbon, hydrogen bonds of water and changes the chemical structure. SF-Gold will not push oil into the water column but immediately rearranges the chemical structure of molecular geometry of the hydrocarbons where the oils loose their identity, dissipate and any remaining particle will naturally biodegrade. Simultaneously, these physical and chemical mechanisms degrade the contaminants on contact.     SF-Gold will itself biodegrade in the environment.


General Properties

  • Officially accepted to US EPA’s NCP List – January 2005
  • Officially accepted to the Singapore Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) – September 2009
  • Highly effective due to the colloid based chemistries
  • #1 performing dispersant on the US EPA NCP List on heavy crude - 85% dispersion 

Physical Properties

  • Water-based colloidal low toxicity dispersant (no hydrocarbons or solvents)
  • Low toxicity – consumer cosmetic grade formulation
  • UK Classification Type 3 – 3rd generation concentrate
  • 100% biodedgradable
  • Non-Caustic & Non-Corrosive
  • Non-Flammable
  • Non-Fuming
  • Non-Toxic

SafRon Gold Dispersant is the most effective product on the US NCP List at 85% dispersal compared to the industry average of 45% on heavy crude oil.
