SorbWeb™ Plus is a double patented multi-layer passive secondary oil containment system. At the heart of the system is a permeable oil immobilizing fabric – a result of a partnership with Kinetrics, a leading testing, inspection, certification and consulting company that provides life cycle management solutions for the electricity industry.
The secret to SorbWeb™ Plus is in its construction. The system is built around a smart fabric, consisting of two designed geotextiles interlocked with polymer to form a continuous mat, known as an “oilmat.” Under normal conditions, the system and its layers are designed to allow water to move freely through the oilmat without accumulating to pass all the way back into the native ground. When hydrocarbons come into contact with the oilmat it will congeal and seal, preventing oil from escaping the containment area.
SorbWeb™ Plus significantly reduces the environmental and economic liabilities associated with an oil spill. Our proprietary polymer blends are non-toxic, non-hazardous and environmentally friendly. The system contributes to sustainability and environmental leadership by protecting our water, land and wildlife from potential oil contamination or exposure.
