Biosorb

An oil-eating, biodegradable absorbent.

P
P

A bioremediation agent used on land, water, and hard surfaces.

We grow and harvest a plant called kenaf, which is then processed into our 100% natural, plant-based oil absorbent.
Kenaf contains natural microbes that eat oil and other hydrocarbons.
Its genetic purpose is to breakdown oil and then biodegrade!
Other absorbents smother the problem and must be retrieved after using. 
Biosorb is eco friendly, wallet-friendly, and rapidly absorbent.
So what's the catch? There simply isn't one...
Biodegradable

Biodegrades after cleaning up a spill and eradicating hydrocarbons. In many states, further disposal is not required.

100% Natural

Contains no carcinogens and is perfectly safe and pure. Using 1 bag of Kengro Biosorb can prevent 196 lbs of clay from going to a landfill.

Microbes that Eat Oil

Kenaf’s natural microbes=rapid bioremediation. Biosorb is one of the fastest-acting agents on the market.

Easy to Dispose

Can be thrown into the compost, into your child’s sandbox, or anywhere you’d like. Check your state regulations, but trust us--you won’t have to sweep this product under the rug.

Cost-Efficient

Yields extremely low labor and disposal costs.  Less Biosorb is needed to clean up one gallon of T-102 Light Crude than any of our competitors.

Reduced Labor Time

Due to its naturally absorbent properties, Biosorb requires little maintenance to work its magic once dispersed.

Absorbs Over 6x’s its Weight

Best absorbency capabilities available. For comparison, clay absorbs .063 times its weight. 


Hydrophobic

Does not absorb water. 100% of absorption is geared toward soaking up oil, not water, making it an ideal solution for all spills.

1 Bag Covers 40 sq. ft.

One bag goes a long way! Our product covers 40 square feet on a 1 inch spill, 20 square feet on a 2 inch spill, etc.

“It’s the best absorbent on the market.  It’s lightweight, easy to apply, and floats on water the best.  We don’t use anything else, and I don’t envision anything better coming along.”
