An effective response to an oil spill is a combination of preparation, procedures
and products (equipment and consumables).
ROSCUE represents the following lines of products in Canada. (Click on the links for more
Eco-Tec ADsorb-it reusable hydrocarbon filter fabric
in a wide variety of form factors. Traps hydrocarbons in the fabric, which can be recovered
by squeezing (wringing) the material. Prevents particulate matter from passing through,
while cleansed water flows through.
Oil Spill Eater International OSE II bioremediant
(sold as liquid concentrate) mixed with local wild (untreated) water uses native microbes to reduce
hydrocarbons into water and carbon-dioxide after initially rendering the oil product
non-flammable and non-toxic, and shuts down evaporation of volatiles (eliminating the oil smell).
Also works to remediate soil contaminated by oil products (brownfields).
Oil Solutions polymer powder oil binder
and 2-step liquid hard surface cleaner work to
microencapsulate oil rendering it non-toxic and non-flammable on contact. The powder
produces an inert mat which can be collected by hand or mechanically, while the hard surface
cleaner produces an environmentally benign powder which can be swept up and safely landfilled.
Extreme Spill Technology gravity-based oil spill recovery
vessels (from 5 metres LOA and up) pick up over 90% of oil encountered on open water,
even in waves, near-gale conditions and in darkness. EST vessels are designed to be multi-functional
so they can earn a living as real work boats, and switch to oil recovery mode in
less than an hour when required.
N.B. ROSCUE does not provide emergency spill response services. We equip first
responders, spill response organizations, communities, vehicle and home owners so that they can provide
superior, effective, first line response to spills of oil products.
