PRP Advanced hydrocarbon sorbent
UniremTech’s PRP® family of remedial agents use Nature to effectively manage and remediate releases of petroleum hydrocarbons in a green and sustainable manner. PRP® is the registered brand name of UniRemTech’s oil spill response sorbent created using a manufacturing application developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). NASA, working in conjunction with industry scientists, developed an encapsulation process that enables the production of hollow, buoyant capsules. This resulted in the development of Petroleum Remediation Product (PRP)®.
PRP® is a powder of formed, hollow wax microcapsules. The microcapsules average 50 microns in size and appear as a fine powder. PRP® has a natural affinity for hydrocarbons and will immediately combine to encapsulate petroleum molecules. PRP® is also highly hydro-phobic and cannot be mixed or dissolved in water even after absorbing spills. PRP® is composed of a proprietary blend of natural ingredients. One of the principle ingredients is beeswax which contains nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, nutrients for microbes which utilize the blend of PRP® and absorbed petroleum.
