Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
WHAT IS PEAT SORB?
PEAT SORB comes from environmentally managed and harvested peat bogs. Peat Sorb is a revolutionary hydrocarbon aBsorbent made from Canadian Spagnum Peat Moss. When dehydrated through a proprietary heating process, it becomes a product with unparalleled aBsorption capabilities. Peat Sorb is not to be confused with Horticultural peat. PEAT SORB HAS A 30 YEAR HISTORY OF SUCCESSFULLY ABSORBING HYDROCARBON SPILLS!
IS IT A SUSTAINABLE PRODUCT?
Peat moss is a renewable resource. There are 270,000,000 acred and peat in Canada. Only 40,000 acres are being harvested! Only .02% of the peat moss areas are being used! Peat moss is growing at a rate of 70 times faster than it is being harvested! Peat moss will not run out, at this rate for generations and will be able to provide our aBsorbent products for generations to come. SOURCE: North American Wetlands Council and The Canadian Spagnum Peat Moss Association.
WHERE IS IT USED?
Wherever there is a hydrocarbon spill ON LAND or on WATER!
LAND: As this product is a highly efficient aBsorbent, you will require less Peat Sorb than any other product to clean up a spill. Simply apply Peat Sorb around the perimeter of the spill. This will disallowed the spill to spread further. If it is a hydrocarbon, the Peat Sorb will begin to change colour from light brown to black. Apply Peat Sorb to the remainder of the spill. Once it stops changing colour simply sweep or rake the peat sorb and dispose. PEAT SORB has approximately 10 times more absorbance than Clay based aDsorbents. One pound of Peat Sorb will absorb approximately 1 US gallon or 4 litres of a hydrocarbon. Peat Sorb absorbs on contact and the hydrocarbon is encapsulated. No leaching or leaking occurs!
WATER: Peat Sorb is hydrophobic and therefore it floats on water. It will float for several days, before it starts to re-hydrate. The absorbed and encapsulated hydrocarbon, however, will not leach or leak! Peat Sorb has a proven history of working on water from shorelines to smaller spills. It can be easily be removed with skimmers, where required.
IS IT EXPENSIVE?
No! If one considers, in addition to its tremendous ability to clean up spills; it is light weight; and its absorption abilities make it lower cost to ship; and reduce the amount of absorbing material required. Therefore, warehousing costs are reduced substantially. Person hours required to clean up a hydrocarbon spill, are greatly reduced compared to clay-based products. You may be permitted to dispose used PEAT SORB in a Sanitary Landfill depending on local regulations. We recommend checking with your landfill on their classifications and requirements.
