Completely natural and eco-friendly bio-enzyme powder for the total absorption and remediation of all hydrocarbon spills such as oils, diesel, petrol, paraffin and much more. Works excellently for all land and water spills.

Product Description:

Oil Gobbler™ Absorbent is an eco-friendly, super absorbent, natural bio-enzyme powder that effectively cleans up and simultaneously remediates stubborn liquids such as oils, diesel, petrol, paraffin and many more other   nuisance liquids. Its super   absorbent properties stem from a   special proprietary highly   porous crystalline structure which when viewed under a microscope can be compared to the honeycomb structure of a super absorbent sponge. Furthermore, Oil Gobbler™ Absorbent powder has unique desiccating and cationic properties which unlike commercial air fresheners does not mask smells but rather eliminates them for good.   

Remediates Hydrocarbons:

By using combinations of proprietary enzyme producing bacteria practically any hydrocarbon (oil petrol, diesel, paraffin, crude oils, coal tar etc.) can be safely bio-degraded and removed quicker and more cost effectively than traditional harmful chemicals. Oil Gobbler™ Absorbent bacterial cultures are uniquely cultivated from South African soils giving them a massive home ground performance advantage. They metabolize much faster, reproduce quicker and survive longer. The hydrocarbon waste is incredibly converted into carbon dioxide and water.

Typical Applications:

• Clean-up and remediation of oil spills and other  liquid  hydrocarbons commonly found  in harbours, on beaches, rivers, dams, drive throughs, parking garages, petrol service stations, refineries, workshops, airports and much more.

• Mop up operations at road and airport accident scenes and sites where toxic materials have been spilt.

• Animal feedlots and poultry coops where hygiene and odour control is paramount. Powder Gobbler™ is completely inert and non-toxic and in the unused state may be safely ingested by animals.

• Septic tank and sewer overflow clean-up operations.

• Cleaning and odour suppression of carpeting and furniture contaminated by decaying organic matter and animal excretions.

• Oil and fat clean-up following cooking, a braai or barbeque.

Water Oil Spill Application:

Scatter a moderate amount of Powder Gobbler™ powder onto the oil. Powder Gobbler™ will immediately begin absorbing the oil and thereafter start coagulating into a contained mass of oil and powder. The coagulated oil and Powder Gobbler™ will after some time begin to sink, leaving a clean layer of water above. Coagulated material that has sunk should be brought to the surface and captured. As an alternative to the aforementioned, Powder Gobbler™ can be applied to sections of the oil spill and be contained before the coagulated mass of oil and powder begins to sink.

Solid Surface Spills:

For the application of spills onto solid surfaces such as service station forecourts, roads and highways, accident scenes, soil, ships, carpets, upholstery and more. Scatter a layer of Powder Gobbler™ directly onto the spill. Wait for a short period for the powder to begin absorbing the liquid and odour. Using a broom or brush sweep the powder back and forth over the spill. Sweeping ensures that maximum surface contact takes place between powder and spill. With every sweeping pass of Powder Gobbler™ one should notice a significant reduction of the spilt liquid. Should effective absorption cease, the initial quantity of Powder Gobbler™ has become saturated and a second layer should be applied. Repeat the steps above until the spill has been completely absorbed and contained. Sweep or vacuum the material and collect it.

Remediating Collections:

After the powder has been collected as per the above instructions for a water or solid surface spill, it should be and remediated in an environmentally friendly manner using Ecozyme Oil Spill Gobbler™ Powder, a bio-enzymatic product which uses enzyme producing bacteria which feed on oil and hydrocarbons, permanently turning them into carbon dioxide and water.

Remediate Onsite:

Collected powder from cleaning up water and land spills can simply and easily be remediated on site without further expensive transport to remediation sites. Not only is this a much more cost effective solution, but it is far more eco-friendly as there are no carbon dioxide gas emissions footprints from having to truck in to collect the waste, and then trucking the waste offsite.

Natural, Safe, Non-Toxic:

Powder Gobbler™ in its unused form is a completely natural product with no harmful effect on the environment whatsoever.

  Packaging and Storage:

Packaged in 24Kg sealed buckets. Custom bulk packaging for large exports is available. No special storage requirements are required.
