14 Oct DissOil – Forest Research Institute Report 986-2018 – is now published
Skogforsk (The central research body for the Swedish forestry sector) and BillerudKorsnäs, together with OneCleanEarth, have evaluated DissOil, an oil-absorbing organic absorbent for use on oil spills in forestry settings. In the study, DissOil was compared with Zugol, a commonly used absorbent in forestry, regarding absorption and degradation of oils as well as bleeding under pressure. Synthetic and mineral-based hydraulic oil spilled on woodland (moraine), gravel road and forest water were included in the trials.
DissOil absorbs and breaks down hydraulic oils to 100% within 7 to 14 days when spilled on moraine, gravel and water at low temperatures, 9 ° – 12 ° C.
No bleeding from oil-saturated DissOil occurs at 90 kg pressure for 15 minutes.
Zugol showed no comparable properties.
