FOSS – Fats, Oils and Solvents
Ecological sorbent of emulsified mineral oils, animal and vegetable fats and solvents. Absorbs short and long carbon chain lipophilic molecules to porous granules for easy removal from process water, effluents and similar. The saturated product most often has a high-energy value and very little water, and is suitable as fuel. FOSS is designed for non-pressurized and pressurized filter systems and fits in with conventional skimmers and separation pumps for removal from aqueous phases.
