Coco Absorb Sorbents & Booms

CocoAbsorb is a 100% natural, coconut coir product with no additives, used for the absorption of many products including hydrocarbons, water – based products, and other products that may be expensive to remove or absorb.  CocoAbsorb has been approved to be disposed of in landfills in California, and Florida, for most commonly absorbed products.  It has been scientifically proven that the products absorbed by the CocoAbsorb product will not leach, or leak out.   CocoAbsorb is not a de-hydrated product, and does not contain any silica or harmful dust as do most of the absorbent products used today.

  • Test #2 is the CCR Metals SOP 7040 (Total Metals Concentration)
  • CocoAbsorb also Exceeded TTLC Limits (PASSED)
  •  And the Aquatic Testing Laboratories, Ventura CA
  • Test #3 required by California was the 96 hour CCR title 22 Fathead Minnow Hazardous Waste Screen Bioassay. The Sample used was one pound of CocoAbsorb saturated with one quart of 15W40 Used Oil. The results were 0 dead fish over a 96 hour period (PASSED)
How it works:
  • Coconut Coir, aka “coir fibre pith” is a by-product left after the coconut husks are processed for their long fibres, and edible contents
  • Coir is a natural renewable resource
  • Coir is free from any chemicals & toxins, or harmful micro-organisms
  • Coir is composed of millions of capillary micro-sponges
  • Coir has large surface area created by hollow channel structure
  • Demonstrates a preference for hydrocarbons over water (absorbing it faster)
