AbTech’s Smart Sponge technology is a proprietary blend of synthetic polymers aimed at removing oil derivatives and hydrocarbons from water.
Hydrophobic and Oleophilic
Smart Sponge has a very porous structure with hydrophobic and oleophilic characteristics capable of selectively removing hydrocarbons while allowing high flow through rates for water.
The Smart Sponge remains buoyant in calm or agitated water, permitting it to remain in place until fully saturated, to ensure that the product is fully utilized.
In addition, all absorbed oil and hydrocarbon residue is non-leaching; the Smart Sponge transforms the pollutants into a stable solid allowing for a practical, less expensive, hassle-free handling and disposal. This results in a problem-free, closed-loop solution to water pollution.
