Selection Criteria and Laboratory Evaluation of Oil Spill Sorbents - Update III

A number of commercially available oil spill sorbents, some not previously tested, were tested using three different petroleum products and two hydrocarbon solvents. The sorbents were evaluated in terms of initial and maximum capacities, water pickup, and reuse potential. Combined with practical field experience, this study serves as a useful guide to sorbent selection for spill conditions. - OUT OF STOCK
