A new type of industrial absorbent, which is said to soak up oil and fuel spills faster than traditional clay granules, is available from Yorkshire-based Northern Insulation Pipeline Stockists (NIPS).
Isol8 is made from biodegradable coconut husk and has already been supplied to tank installation company Fuelsafe.NIPS director Jeremy Bent (pictured below left) says: "It's an extremely light, compact and natural product, making it easier to use without lifting a heavy weight, easier to dispose of and easier to store.""While it is more expensive than clay granules, it's amazingly rapid and effective absorbency means it still works out four times more cost-effective than anything else on the market," he claims. 01423 871794
