Greensorb Products

Safer for people and the environment, GreenSorb® is a clay based, highly efficient absorbent ideal for a variety of marine applications, from deck cleaning to handling spills in shipyards. GreenSorb works by encapsulating liquids, which may allow the absorbent to be reused. Ultimately, there’s less material to dispose of after cleanups, reducing the cost of disposal (particularly with hazardous materials), which makes GreenSorb more economical than other absorbent solutions. Not to mention, it works better. Crushed clay and alumina silicate both pose respiratory health risks to employees, sorbent pads are time-consuming and Diatomaceous Earth powder and alternatives made of plant byproducts are lightweight and overly dusty. In addition to being non-leaching and low dusting (GreenSorb improves workplace safety through 20 times dust reduction when compared to a typical crushed clay absorbent), this proven product consists of a gritty, non-slip material – resulting in safe cleaning of both indoor and outdoor spills. Plus, it can be used to absorb any industrial oils, solvents, hydraulic fluids or grease. And GreenSorb is perfect for use with SAFECARE® SuperSolv™ Safety Solvent or CSR-3000 Solvent Cleaner – powerful, water miscible cleaners that remove most organic and inorganic materials without damaging cleaning surfaces.
