Oil absorbent products

The GRAFYSORBER® oil absorbent products are engineered to make the most of the absorbent capacity of this revolutionary material.
The specially designed external fabric of barriers, pillows and socks is filled with GRAFYSORBER®, a super expanded graphite, produced through a patented and proprietary technology, able to absorb 100 times its own weight.
These products can be used to remove oil from the surface of water and from the ground, in case of oil spills or to prevent oil spread.
GRAFYSORBER® oil absorbent devices comply with the international regulations in terms of marine defence.

  • easy to handle and dispose
  • effective
  • lightweight
  • Sustainable

Applications

  • Oil spill containment
  • Oil slicks removal
  • Oil spills control during maintenance or clean-up operations
  • Superficial oil water filtration

Description

GRAFYSORBER®️ Oil-absorbent products deliver the fast and very high absorption capacity you need to quickly confine and soak up every type of oils, preferably medium viscosity oils.
The special external fabric in synergy with GRAFYSORBER®️ absorbs oils but repel water-based liquids, thus guaranteeing the floating of the absorbent devices, even when saturated.
Ideal for skimming oil off the surface of water or for any type of oil spills control, i.e. during maintenance or clean-up operations.
The products can be pressed to recover the absorbed hydrocarbons to drastically reduce wastes, both in terms of weight and volume.

Commercial consumer products

  • Loose materials or containment and absorbing systems (like barriers and pillows)
  • Industrial water treatment batch systems for different end-users

Mobile Production Unit

Our Mobile Production Unit (MPU) is a “plug and play” device that allows you to take patented plasma expansion technology wherever you need it, avoiding transport costs. The MPU can produce in a short time all the GRAFYSORBER®️ necessary to face emergencies and contaminations, even of great entity.

Case history

GRAFYSORBER® barriers and pillows for ENI SpA

GRAFYSORBER® absorbing barriers and pillows have been used by ENI SpA as a fixed defense barrier on a stream contaminated by hydrocarbons leaked for accidents or break-ins, in Morimondo, Italy.
They performed up to 16 times better than traditional polypropylene based product.

GRAFYSORBER®️ oil absorbent products have been tested in the North Sea by anti-pollution companies, active in the oil & gas sector, with extremely positive results. The strengths are the lightness, and therefore the simplicity in handling, the effectiveness of absorption and the reduction of the amount of plastic used.

Operator with GRAFYSORBER® barriers

During an ordinary remediation activity, the operator is deploying two adsorbing barriers to contain the oil spill and preserve the water, close to the electrical power plant. The two barriers are easy to handle thanks to their lower weight compared to the traditional ones.

Tier 2 Oil Spill Response Exercise with PDO Oman

Several liters of crude oil were poured in confined sea water and quickly removed using few GRAFYSORBER® barriers and pillows.
