Motorway Oil Spill
Fast safe Oil Spill Eradication
S-200 Oilgone® utilises environmentally safe crystal technology to bond with any fresh spilled hydrocarbon (Oil, Fuels) in seconds and break the pollutant into carbon dioxide (inert gas) and water.
This allows for the ultra quick treatment of oil spills on Motorways where any delay in treatment can cause accidents, road closure and loss of revenue to motorway operators.
*The crystals encapsulate (surround) oil and fuel and and keeps them on the surface protecting the asphalt of the road surface,the water table and the environment. The crystals are non toxic, non flammable, non corrosive and 100% biodegradable. Fuel vapour is eradicated in minutes.
S-200 Oilgone® also acts as a fire retardant. Any oil or fuel which is fully encapsulate within its matrix will not catch fire. Encapsulation takes three to five minutes depending on the density of the liquid hydrocarbon,
S-200 Bonds to Oil
S-200 Oilgone® liquid can simply be sprayed onto any area covered in oil. It bonds with the oil on contact and therefore is not affected by wind or rain.
S-200 Oilgone® floats on the surface of the asphalt, pulling the oil into its structure. It does not soak into or degrade the asphalt over time.
The picture shows an area of the hard shoulder that has been treated with S-200. The milky white areas is the oil encapsulated within the S-200 matrix.
Oil is eradicated naturally
Once the oil /fuel is encapsulated within the S-200 OilGone it can be simply left to biodegrade in place or it can be hosed to the side. The picture shows the same area of the motorway hard shoulder 40 minutes after the spill treatment started.
Once S-200 OilGone has encapsulated the oil within its matrix it becomes non-toxic and non-viscous. Local occurring bacteria feast on the oil in an accelerated state, turning the oil into carbon dioxide and water. Then the bacteria eat the matrix itself and return unchanged to the local environment. There is no residue. Nothing to clean-up. IT is for this reason that encapsulated oil within the S-200 OilGone matrix can safely be hosed to the side or into drains.
Assigned to History
The picture demonstrates volunteers mopping up oil with rags and pads. This well meaning effort can be assigned to history as with S-200 OilGone technology all that is required is to Spray and drive away.
