Green Rhino manufactures innovative spill control solutions for the construction, civil engineering, utility and transport sectors. Where oil, fuel or sediment is a contamination risk, Green Rhino products will prevent pollution.
In a market crowded with companies claiming to ‘care for the environment’ but selling products that are demonstrably flawed, Green Rhino set out to develop spill control solutions that would deliver on the promise.
We pioneered the use of smart polymers to neutralise hydrocarbons. Our smart polymer technology delivers 100% effective spill control at a significantly lower price than established spill control solutions. If you use oil absorbents, nappy-style spill trays, oil-water separators, settlement tanks or vacuum tankers, Green Rhino can improve your risk mitigation and/or save you money.
Why smart polymers are better than absorbents
In the field of spill containment, absorbent spill products are commonly used. These products do not retain hydrocarbons permanently. Absorbents act like a sponge; pollutants can go in, but they can come out again. So if used outside when it rains, or used to soak spills up from water, these products simply become another spill risk.
Green Rhino smart polymer products retain hydrocarbons permanently. Whether capturing leaks or spills directly, or filtering contaminated water, our smart polymer reacts with hydrocarbons to form a solid rubber-like substance. In this state, the pollutants are trapped inside the product. Contaminants won’t leak out and can’t be flushed out by rainwater or jet washing.
Our proprietary blends of smart polymer are uniquely effective in attracting and retaining a wide range of hydrocarbons including oil, diesel, petrol, hydraulic fluid and transformer liquid. Smart polymers are non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and have no special COSHH requirements.
Why you should choose Green Rhino
The primary reason you use spill containment products is to protect the environment and, by extension, protect your employer from prosecution for pollution offences. Using products that retain hydrocarbons permanently instead of products that don’t makes a lot of sense. When these products are also cheaper, it’s a no-brainer.
