OSR™ (Oil Spill Remedy) is an earth conscious, cost effective waste treatment solution that prevents oil from clumping and/or clinging to marine life, equipment and shorelines.
O-S-R safely* separates the oil particles from the water surface and deconstructs the oil molecules so that they can easy flow into the water column and become excellent food for hungry plankton.
Chemicals commonly used for treating an oil spill for open waters and riparian areas—such as detergents and dispersants—break apart the surface oil into smaller particles or droplets so that the oil no longer remains in a layer on the water's surface.
Other emulsifiers and dispersants actually cause the oils to blend in with water creating a "disappearing" effect and can also cause clumping. Most dispersants themselves harm marine life and the oil they disperse can remain in the body of water, sink to the sea floor or wash onto the wetlands poisoning marine life.
The combined value of the O-S-R application is that it:
- Is 100% biodegradable
- Is GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe) Certified
- Is non-toxic and a corrosion inhibitor
- Works in fresh and salt water
- Contains no enzymes and is not an emulsifier
