Silver con Oil Eating Microbes (OEM)
Petrozorb – Silver is made up of 100% of renewable organic cellulose fibers with the addition of Oil Eating Microbes (OEM), that is, microorganisms that can metabolize oils and hydrocarbons. An important significant advantage of Pètrozorb Silver compared to ordinary materials used in oil absorption is the fact that it is 100% biodegradable, consisting of a mixture of 5 different types of plants that also have the advantage of rendering the product non-abrasive and regenerating.
Its high absorption capacity is due to the ultra porous structure that allows the product to absorb hydrocarbons while maintaining the pollutant fluid inside the granule.
Petrozorb Silver has the ability to quickly absorb dispersions by by using its oleophilous qualities. And it has the ability to restore and make reusable the polluted area
The structure allows it to float on each liquid to be absorbed. It acts immediately at the contact.
In the first few minutes that are the most critical for a quick cleaning reaction Petrozorb Silver absorbs 90% of its capacity. The product continues to absorb for a long time and does not allow any release process of the absorbed.
Petrozorb – Silver contains microorganisms natural and added in the laboratory and all the macro and microelements (nutrients) that can support life in the soil and that facilitate bioremediation.
These nutrients support the colony of Petrozorb – Silver ‘s microorganisms enabling them to proliferate in an otherwise sterile environment. From the time these microorganisms metabolize hydrocarbons stimulate and increase the growth of new plants by acting as fertilizer.
The above properties allow Petrozorb – Silver to be a perfect balanced solution: when a spillage of oils or chemicals occurs, the soil is sterilized and deprived of any form of life and nutrient. Petrozorb – Silver encapsulates the pollutant, restores the microorganisms useful to the soil and provides them with all the nutrients needed to support them, allowing them to multiply rapidly. These microorganisms then feed and lower hydrocarbons and consequently supply the soil and renew plant growth.
• Our biological microorganisms are produced in a structure that has been recorded in accordance with ISO 9002. Strict controls and very stringent tests are an integral part of the manufacturing process and are carried out in order to ensure that the products are manufactured with the highest quality standard.
• Microorganisms in our active microbial products belong to Class I as defined in the Center for Disease Control (CDC)
• This group consists of biological agents that represent a low individual risk and for the community since it
is highly unlikely to cause disease or danger to the health of humans and animals.
• Logs are sent regularly to an independent body for its verification, identification and classification

Petrozorb – Silver can be used to clean up oil spills on solid surfaces such as highways, concrete slabs and ground, and on liquid surfaces. Petrozorb – Silver floats on the water, preferably absorbs more oil than water and floats even when oil saturates without altering its molecular structure.
Petrozorb – Silver absorbs oils, coolants, solvents and other oily materials floating on the water. An additional advantage is that it maintains its consistency even when used on water and oil saturated. Once saturated with oil, it does not become “muddy”. This feature allows the saturated oil product to be harvested or raked without much difficulty. Petrozorb – Silver is not absolutely toxic.
