EnviroMop Announces Worldwide Availability of Patented Oil Sorbent

EnviroMop™ LLC, announces the worldwide availability of revolutionary patented Maximum Oil Pickup™ (MOP) product. This hydrophobic cellulose-based sorbent material can absorb up to 30 times its own weight in oil or other hydrocarbons.

Highland Park, NJ (PRWEB) September 10, 2005 -- EnviroMop™ LLC, a manufacturer of hydrophobic cellulose-based sorbent material, announces the worldwide availability of revolutionary patented Maximum Oil Pickup™ (MOP) product. Accidental oil spills, whether large or small or on land or water, are a common occurrence that must be dealt with quickly and effectively to avoid serious environmental damage.

EnviroMop improves upon the existing arsenal of oil spill absorbent products. This unique patented product:
- Works on water and land; in all types of weather conditions.
- Is 100% biodegradable, non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-irritating – it is safe to plants and animals.
- Cleanly recovers up to 95% of the absorbed oil simply by squeezing. The remaining material can be burned to recover 100% of the available energy, while leaving as low as 0.1% ash.
- Absorbs up to 30 times its own weight in oil offering superior absorbent performance.
- It is treated to be a fire retardant. And is lightweight; easy to handle.
- Has traction restoring grit, so treated hard surfaces are immediately safe and not slippery.
- It is lightweight; easy to handle.
- Cost effective in comparison to other sorbents.
- MOP is available in bags (loose), pillows, and booms.

“To immediately stop all the harmful effects of an oil spill, MOP is clearly the best option,” said David Levine, President of EnviroMop. “We challenge any company charged with cleaning up spills to test our product against anything else in your arsenal of sorbents for oil, or any other liquid hydrocarbons.”

Once MOP is applied, the oil will not leach out and it halts further contamination of land or water. The aggressive oil-holding action will not allow MOP to release its grip on the oil to the environment. It is designed for optimum performance on each and every possible surface where oil spills can occur.

In addition, the oil holding action of MOP is not affected by foul weather. MOP holds the oil in rain, sleet or snow until it is picked up. MOP can be retrieved quickly and easily. The MOP-treated area is now restored without contamination and is free of oil. MOP contains a traction-restoring grit that immediately re-establishes safe footing on hard surfaces after being treated.

Remarkably clean oil in large volumes can be recovered from oil saturated MOP simply by squeezing. Up to 95% of the oil can be re-used. MOP actually cleans the oil so it is available without contamination by water or debris. And with the high cost of oil, this is a good thing. Furthermore, the remaining MOP can be burned to recover 100% of the available energy while leaving an ash residue as low as 0.1%.

Liquids Absorbed Are: Jet Fuel, Gasoline, Diesel Fuel, Motor Oil, Hydraulic Fluid, Transformer Oil, Mineral Oil, Viscosity Enhancers, Surfactants, Ethyl Alcohol, Methyl Alcohol, Isopropyl Alcohol, Methyl Ethyl, Ketone, Thinner, and any other liquid hydrocarbons.

Performs Reliably In: Oil & Gas Production, Petroleum Transportation, Petroleum Refineries, Gas Transmission, Petrochemical Plants, Utility Generating Plants, Health Care Facilities, Oil-Fired Furnaces, Manufacturing Plants, Marine Terminals, Rail Transportation, Service Stations, Rental Yards, Airports, Fleet Maintenance, Heavy Construction, Pulp & Paper Mills, Food Processing Plants, and many other industrial and service applications.
