The Innovative Way to Remove Contaminants From Polluted Water
Seddons Plant & Engineers Ltd has launched an innovative eco-friendly Polymer Pillow which can remove contaminants such as oil, petrol and diesel from polluted water within minutes. Designed to clean up or dewater areas such as bunds, excavations, trenches and manholes, Polymer Pillows are simply placed in contaminated water to remove hydrocarbons to non-detectable levels and prevent the release of contaminants or hazardous fluids into the environment.
Polymer Pillows are designed to allow teams working in the field to immediately resolve contamination problems without having to shut down and wait for third party vacuum trucks and other solutions to arrive. Tankers can otherwise be used to pump out the water and take it off site for disposal, but each visit can cost up to £1,000.
Small and lightweight, Polymer Pillows contain a unique blend of polymer granules that solidify into a rubber-like solid upon contact with hydrocarbons. With the capacity for each Polymer Pillow to retain up to 1 litre of hydrocarbons, they can be left in-situ or used as part of a specific job. Once the Pillows are solidified, they can be removed from water by hand and be disposed of in standard hazardous waste bins. All hydrocarbons are ‘locked in’ to the polymer with no risk of leaching out or polluting the environment.
Organisations have legal and environmental responsibilities to avoid pollution occurring. Substances such as oil, diesel and petrol can cause pollution and this can happen accidentally or deliberately when substances are released to water, land or air. Those who cause pollution or allow it to occur may be committing a criminal offence and anyone involved can be prosecuted, receive a fine or even go to prison. Not only can pollutants put human health at risk, they can also affect drinking water supplies, business activities, wildlife and enjoyment of the environment.
