Cost per litre of oil absorbed:
Saves you money in 3 ways
- EnviroPad® has the lowest cost per litre of oil absorbed (and is the only one that retains it permanently)
- Reduces the volume of waste you produce because contaminated rainwater doesn’t pool inside
- With 5 sizes, you can save £££s across a project
Industrial Spill Mats
Oil spill mats are used to capture oil leaks and refuelling spills when using motor-driven equipment like saws, ground breakers, generators, pumps, tower lights, fuel bowsers and construction vehicles. They are a legal requirement under pollution prevention legislation. Failure to implement effective spill control measures can lead to fines, site closures and even prosecution.
What Makes the Green Rhino EnviroPad Different?
Green Rhino has pioneered the use of smart polymer technology to capture and solidify oil, fuels and other hydrocarbons. The smart polymer inside EnviroPad reacts with spills and leaks converting them into an insoluble rubber-like substance which is trapped inside the pad. The solidified contaminants will not leak out and can’t be flushed out by rainfall or even jet washing. No liner or sidewalls are required.
The problem with most oil spill pads, trays and nappies is that they act like a sponge and are prone to leak when saturated. Most need an additional liner which operatives often forget. Not only that, products with sidewalls fill with oily rainwater which is classed as hazardous waste. The impracticality of moving and emptying these spill trays and nappies responsibly means that operatives often leave them to overflow or tip the polluted water straight onto the ground.
The proprietary CG1 polymer used inside EnviroPad has been specifically blended to attract a wide range of hydrocarbons including oil, diesel, petrol and hydraulic fluid.
Safe, Efficient and Cost Effective
EnviroPad is more cost-effective than other oil spill pads, mats and nappies. It delivers the lowest cost per litre of oil retained and only EnviroPad retains hydrocarbons permanently. There are five sizes of EnviroPad (retaining up to 44L oil) which means that you can find a size to fit all items of equipment.
The high-quality mesh outer fabric wicks hydrocarbons across the surface to areas of unused polymer, ensuring that you get the most out of every EnviroPad before it needs replacing.
With no sidewalls, no pools of contaminated rainwater are generated reducing your overflow risk and waste disposal costs.
Used EnviroPads can be safely and easily disposed of in a standard hazardous waste container. The polymers are non-toxic, non-carcinogenic and have no special COSHH requirements.
