Calculations to know how much Amcor Sorbe is required to clean a spill:
Weights of different liquids;
1 Gal of crude oil – 7.21 Lbs
1 Gal of Water – 8.33 Lbs
1 Lbs = 0.4535 Kg
1 Kg = 2.204 Lbs
1 Metric Ton = 1,000 Kg
1 Metric Ton = 2,204 Lbs
How much Amcor Sorbe required to clean the 90K gal of oil spill
1 bag of Amcor Sorbe = 35Lbs
90,000 Gal X 7.21 Lbs = 648,900 Lbs Amcor Sorbe
648,900 Lbs of Oil / 35 Lbs of Bag = 18,540 Bags
18,540 Bags = 648,900 Lbs / 2,204 Lbs = 294.4 Metric Tons
If we say that our product cleans 6X’s the volume, then 294.4 Metric Tons /6 = 49 Metric Tons of Amcor Sorbe required to clean the 90,000 Gal of crude oil spill
