13 Feb BillerudKorsnäs – First to use DissOil commercially
BillerudKorsnäs, one of Sweden’s largest forestry company, has decided to use DissOil as solution for oil cleanups in the forestry section. The use of DissOil in forestry is a big leap forward in order to achieve sustainable forestry.
We have during 2018 conducted a scientific study together with Skogforsk (The Forestry Research Institute of Sweden) and BillerudKorsnäs. This study showed how efficient DissOil is for cleanup of oil spill in forest settings. The fact that BillerudKorsnäs now has introduced DissOil is a receipt that they also believe that this is a win-win solution! More efficient, cost saving and environmental-friendly.
“In the past, waste from an oil or diesel spill from a forest machine had to be collected, transported away and disposed of as hazardous waste. A laborious and expensive work. Now that time is over thanks to a revolutionary and environmental-friendly product.
DissOil, an absorbent made of natural cork, absorbs the spill that in turn is eaten/broken down by enzymes into carbon dioxide and water. What remains is the cork – a pure natural product. This means that the absorbent can be left in the forest, as it does not have to be collected and transported away.” – BillerudKorsnäs
“We at OneCleanEarth, the company behind DissOil, are very happy that BillerudKorsnäs has chosen DissOil. We are grateful that BillerudKorsnäs has the courage to try new products and it proves that they are willing to try new and innovative solutions in order to achieve sustainable forestry” – Tommy Blom, CEO, OneCleanEarth
