Introduction to Spill Absorbents

Spill absorbents are critical elements in the fight against spills and environmental pollution. Their role is to absorb a liquid spill so that it can easily be cleaned up. Using absorbents also prevents spills from spreading further or seeping into the ground.

Most often, absorbents are supplied as part of a spill kit. These kits may also contain booms to contain a spill, brushes to sweep up the contaminated absorbent, and waste bags to collect and dispose of the used absorbent.

There are different types of absorbents available for different types of spills. It is important to select the right absorbent for your application. Choosing an incompatible absorbent may make a spill worse or even add the risk of fire due to reactions between the absorbent and the chemical involved.
