OilOff combines non‐petroleum and bio‐based surfactants with oily hydrocarbon degrading bacteria to create an effective cleaning and bioremediation tool for multiple applications. It is primarily designed to treat porous surfaces where chemistry penetrates the structure changing the properties of bound oils thus making them easier to remove. The oily hydrocarbon degrading bacteria are then capable of producing their own biosurfactant to aid this process and then to degrade the oils in situ over time.
OilOff is effective immediately upon application and can be used to remove oils from on a variety of hard surfaces and can replace many existing products as an all‐in‐one cleaner
The formulation is readily biodegradable and with an excellent environmental profile. It is also non‐corrosive to skin and does not require assignment of a UN number. The formulation also includes ingredients that actively reduce re‐deposition of oils.
OilOff is not an oil dispersant. The ‘quick split nature’ of the formulation means that removed oils can be readily separated from wash liquor and disposed of via different waste streams as required. Also, OilOff will not interfere with the operation of land ‐based oily water interceptors nor bilge handing systems on ships.
