Made in the Republic of Belarus by Belarus-UK joint venture AridGrow Production Ltd. in accordance with TR BY 490421644.001-2006 | ТR BY 490421644.003-2016 | ТR BY 490421644.006-2020 under the license and control of the AridGrow Laboratories Ltd.

Store in a dry place with temperature range from -50°С to +50°С, preventing from direct sunlight and unwanted encapsulation of moisture.


OIL ABSORBENT AridGrow® - is a highly versatile tool for removing thin film of oil and petroleum products on various surfaces. Highly effective to both soil and water. Surface Cleaner for oiled steel, transport equipment, breakwaters, piers, ramps and other surfaces contaminated with petroleum products and non-polar hydrocarbons. Highly effective for rapid absorption and fixation of petroleum, oil, fuel oil and other liquid non-polar organic pollutants by hydrocarbon nature. Ecologically pure, environmentally friendly, completely non-toxic, fire & explosion proof powder substance black by colour without any smell.

  • Cleaning up contaminated surfaces of piers, rocks, jetties, storage tanks, oily production facilities in an environmentally safe manner.
  • Water repellent, do not get wet or dissolve in water and work as a barrier, narrowing contamination zones and absorbing oil irreversibly, preclude contaminant from spreading both in breadth and depth.
  • Not less than 24–25 days flotation ability guarantees collection of the used sorbent by physical methods. In the case of deposition on the bottom of the absorbed oil sorbent is not a threat, since it is contained within the sorbent particles in encapsulated form, where there is a gradual biodegradation.
  • Absorption velocity of oil products is up to 4 times than in weight: stock-tank oil of medium viscosity at +20ºС is 15–30 sec, gasoline and thin (iridescent) hydrocarbonic films from water surface 1–2 sec, engine oil 5–8 sec.
  • Sterile, do not contain pathogenic germs and explosion-proof.
  • Provide accelerated remediation of territories, contaminated with oil products, because sorbents are work further as soil ameliorants and soil improvers.
  • Has no limitation on use and do not require hygiene rating.

Developed by the Institute for Nature Management of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus jointly with the Belarusian Research and Design Oil Institute. Has passed successful comprehensive tests during 15 years in Belarus, Russia and the Middle East.
