Product Detail

Amcor Sorbe, absorbent is manufactured from the dry stalk of a unique plant. The plant absorbent products are intended for Toxic spills, 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 bio-remediation. The Microbes in Amcor Sorbe are GOOD microbes.  These are single- celled living things that occur naturally.

They help clean up pollution faster, cheaper and better than any other way. No chemicals are added in Amcor Sorbe therefore there are no possible harmful microbes produced by it. Live Hungry Microbes that only eat 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.

These statements are backed by tests conducted by several big universities in the US. 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.

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.
