Oil Selective absorbent spill kits absorb hydrocarbons (oil) and repel water. They are designed for use on spills of hydrocarbons (oil, fuel oil, petrol, diesel, vegetable oil etc.) that can occur outdoors in rainy conditions and for taking oil off water if a spill has accessed a drain or water course.
The Environment Agencies states that spill kits should be located both within and near storage areas as well as remote from them (in case during an event it is not possible to access some or all of the spill kit). We have absorbent spill kits for most situations.
