Dulromabsorb sorbent for recovery of petroleum products from sites of accidental spills
- 24 Downloads
The Mozambique sorbent of plant origin, DULROMABSORB, was investigated. Due to the high-tech oleophilic and hydrophobic properties, it can be used as an absorbing substance in eliminating accidental spills of crude oil and a broad spectrum of petroleum products on the surface of water and soil in a wide temperature range. The sorbent can be used in both disperse form and as a filler for oil-absorbing mats and blankets. The sorbent is highly competitive with respect to specialized sorbents for recovery of petroleum products and many potential natural and industrial sorbents.
