A distributor of Sorbent Green introduced Sorbent Green’s products to their client.
The following is a demonstration of Safegrade 320 and Greensorb, cleaning an oil stain on concrete surface outside the main facility building at one location.
There was no excess use of water and/or pressure washing involved.
Greensorb™ material was developed to solve a need for individuals, companies, as well as Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) teams to safely and responsibly mitigate a variety of liquids spilled in commercial or industrial facilities. The product is being used in a variety of applications and is in widespread distribution.

STEP 1: Safegrade 320 is applied to a 14-year-old diesel fuel & oily residue on concrete, where a tractor is generally parked at the Repair Center. The Safegrade 320 is spread evenly with a pump sprayer over the entire residue footprint.
STEP 2: Safegrade 320 is spread around the residue and agitated with a firm nylon brush. Once the entire residue has been worked, the Safegrade 320 is left to soak further into the concrete for three minutes.
STEP 3: After the three minute soak time, Greensorb is applied to the entire residue area.
STEP 4: Greensorb is spread evenly around the entire residue area with a standard medium cleaning broom and allowed a soak time of three minutes.
STEP 5: After the three minute soak time, the Greensorb is worked over the entire residue area with the reverse side of the firm brush for another three minutes.
STEP 6: The Greensorb is removed from the residue area with the medium cleaning broom revealing clean concrete.
STEP 7: The Greensorb absorbs and encapsulates contaminants causing the residue, and 100% of the used Greensorb is returned to the Greensorb Caddy for reuse. Please note that the Greensorb is still a light beige color, indicating substantial absorbent capacity is remaining. The process requires no water, and this diesel oily residue was removed in approximately 15 minutes.
