How effective is DissOil at “eating up” spills of oils and fuel under various conditions?
Active substance of DissOil “eats up” petroleum products, such as oils and diesel. This process is called biodegradation and the rate, i.e. how fast DissOil eats up absorbed spills, is dependent on certain factors. One is temperature and DissOil is active when the temperature is above freezing point. When below the active substance of DissOil is dormant. Absorption properties of DissOil still work for spills on snow and ice and the biodegradation will start again at temperatures above freezing point. The biodegradation rate increases further with rising temperatures, see results below.
Another factor that effects biodegradation rate is the texture of the surface where a spill happens. The rate differs a bit between spills on gravel, soil and water, see results below.
Third factor is moisture, i.e. access to water, which is the accelerator for the process. This means that biodegradation rate is fastest for spills on water. Read more at; How DissOil works or see results below.
