Amcor Sorbe, absorbent is manufactured from the dry stalk of a unique plant. It is a member of the hibiscus family (Hibiscus cannabinus L.), is related to cotton, hemp, and okra. The stalk of the plant is comprised of two fiber types. About one-third of the stalk’s dry weight is bark fiber known as bast. The remaining fiber is the white inner core. Refined bast fibers, similar to softwood fibers, are used to make writing paper, cigarette paper, filtration paper, and, with the addition of polypropylene, a fiberglass-like product. The refined core fibers, similar to hardwood tree fibers, are used to make a range of paper products including composite panels, animal bedding, potting media, and oil absorbent materials. The plant grows quickly, often reaching 12-14 feet in as little as about five months. The plant is collected into loose bales or “modules” and usually stored outside, open to the elements until processing. The plant absorbent products are intended for oil spills on land, water, or hard surfaces such as floors. No chemicals or biological organisms are added during or after processing.
However, there are Indigenous MICROBES in the plant that feed on HYDROCARBONS and harmful CARCINOGENS ONLY that promote bioremediation. Also a white rot fungus is added to further enhance the bioremediation properties. The Microbes in Amcor Sorbe are GOOD microbes. There are 13 known microbes in Amcor Sorbe and they are all produced from all natural materials and is 100 % biodegradable. These are single- celled living things that occur naturally. They help clean up pollution faster, cheaper and better than any other way. We also have the ability to increase the number of good microbes in Amcor Sorbe to accelerate the bioremediation process for up to 200 to 300 %. No chemicals are added in Amcor Sorbe therefore there are no possible harmful microbes produced by it. They are Live Hungry Microbes that only eats harmful Hydrocarbons and Carcinogens pollutants in water and land. It is non-Toxic and can never produce any adverse effect on humans, animals and the environment. Once applied directly onto the pollutants, it attacks and kills the hydrocarbons and eat them until all the pollutants are gone. Once the carcinogens and hydrocarbons are eaten, the pollution is gone, any leftover residue is rendered harmless and all of its harmful qualities are gone and the Microbes die because there are no more pollutants to kill and consume.
The right combinations of helpful microbes which are present in Amcor Sorbe can eat pollution until the pollution disappears. Then the microbes disappear, because there’s no more pollution for them to eat.These statements are backed by tests conducted by several big universities in the US, by the US AIR FORCE and by the US NAVY wherein they spent over $500 thousand dollars in research of Amcor Sorbe and also in conjunction with the Department of Defense who authorized the research and the US government agency like Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Amcor Sorbe also meets Executive Order 13101 identifying our products as environmentally preferable for Government Purchasing. Meets and exceeds US EPA federal requirements. Meets or exceeds U.S, Coast Guards requirements for usage of natural absorbent. These government agencies set up their own standards for products to meet. They DO NOT endorse any product or certify any individual brand. You either meet their requirements or you don’t and Amcor Sorbe meets and even exceeds their standards.
Amcor Sorbe and its microbes works best with people who really understand microbes, and know how much microbes like to eat pollution. The people who know us best are environmental engineers and environmental site managers. They analyze the pollution at contaminated sites, until they know exactly how much pollution and what types of pollution need to be eliminated. Then they write reports explaining how they plan to clean-up the pollution. Sometimes (but not often enough), the plans include using friendly microbes to reduce pollution. The engineers give their plans to government agencies for review. Then the engineers simply follow the approved plan, with the government or the landowner paying for their work. We’re glad to work together with the environmental engineers and environmental site managers to reduce the amount of pollution to levels that the government considers safe. When the pollution is gone, so are the microbes because there’s nothing left for them to eat. Then our microbes are ready to start over at the next place the engineers send them, and have another meal of stuff microbes like to eat, the same stuff that we all call “pollution.”
