Oil Absorbents and Lessons Learned From the Gulf Oil Spill.


“Speed is the key when it comes to oil spill cleanup” states Travis Zdrazil of, a partner in this 25 year old company that sells absorbents and oil spill clean up products.“ The Gulf of Mexico oil spill has made it very clear just how devastating an out-of-control oil spill can be not only for the environment but also to the reputation of a company.”

“This is an important lesson for any company that handles oil in large or small amounts. Even minor oil spills or leaks should never be underestimated,” says Zdrazil. “They can still cause damage and they need to be cleaned up -- fast. Oil absorbents are economical to purchase and come in many forms to help in the fast clean up of any spill.”

Zdrazil suggest four key steps that will help prevent or minimize damage from oil leaks and spills:

1) Prevention
Prevention is always preferable to clean up. It is easy to use secondary containment to minimize the chance that a spill or leak will even reach the floor.

2) Containment
If a spill does occur in spite of all preventive measures, the next step is to contain it as quickly as possible in order to minimize the damage.

Key to containment is having the right equipment, which includes oil absorbents.

3) Clean up
If the spill occurred on water as in the Gulf Oil Spill, oil absorbent booms and pads are the clean up tools of choice. If it occurred on land there are oil absorbent socks and pads designed to clean it up.

4) Preparation
The fourth part should really be the first part: preparation. In order to be able to contain and clean up an oil spill quickly, it is essential to have all of the needed equipment on hand. Going shopping for absorbents and spill containment products after the fact can result in delays that can cause a lot of needless environmental and reputation damage.

“If you have all of the equipment on hand, you’ll be able to contain and clean up any spill much more easily.” says Zdrazil.
