Recommended Uses and Product Description
Shamantra Green can also be used in booms, sacks, and pillows.
For large spills on fresh or salt water, Shamantra Green can be deployed into the spill using an air or water stream.
Shamantra Green will remove oils and other hazardous hydrocarbon based materials from both salt and fresh water very effectively using an encapsulation process on the spilled oil. Once encapsulated into the carbon matrix of Shamantra Green, the spilled oil will not leach out, even under pressure. The humic acid then acts as a nutrient to stimulate microbial activity and enhance the bioremediation of the spilled oil.
Any encapsulated residue can be removed from the water with hand vacuums, vacuum barges, commercial nets, centrifuges, etc. Encapsulated materials can be sent to landfill or used as a fuel source for generating heat ensuring that any material disposed of is in accordance with all applicable federal, state, and local regulations.
To recover encapsulated oil or hazardous materials from spills on land, the encapsulated product can be collected and removed efficiently and effectively using a variety of manual and mechanical methods including picking up by hand, using brooms, rakes and shovels to remove and pick up encapsulated petroleum waste product. Mechanical means include using hand held vacuums, portable vacuum units, and vacuum vehicles.
Once the Shamantra Green has been saturated with oil or hazardous materials, it will not leach the contaminants, even under pressure, so any encapsulated materials can be disposed of appropriately or used as a fuel source for generating heat ensuring that any material disposed of is in accordance with all applicable federal, state, and local regulations.
Proper precautions, including testing as necessary to identify the characteristics of wastes encapsulated by Shamantra Green should be taken to determine the safe and legally required means of recovering, handling, storing, transporting, treating, recycling, or disposing of materials on land in accordance with all applicable federal, state, and local regulations.
