OIL BLITZ is the name for the range of consumer bioremediation products. It is used for the remediation of hydrocarbon spills, or leaks. It is a non-intrusive, cost effective remedy for the clean up of small domestic spills and splashes of petrol, diesel, oil, jet fuels, kerosene, lubricating oils, hydraulic oils and crude oils.
Oil Blitz is a remediation product that completely eradicates petrol, diesel and oil spills in situ – simply with a spray or a squirt from a bottle.
Oil Blitz is a completely natural, bioremediation accelerator that breaks down spilled oils and fuels – hydrocarbons – down into their constituent parts – carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O).Using the latest in NASA space technology, oil contamination can now be treated in situ, in a non-intrusive cleanup form called bioremediation. This process uses 100% environmentally friendly solutions, with completely natural, non-toxic liquid and powder treatments.
Fuel (petrol, diesel, crude oil, hydraulic oil, cresol) are all naturally occurring products called hydrocarbons – made up of elements that occur naturally in the environment – carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. When sprayed onto hydrocarbons, Oil Blitz absorbs the fuel, completely encapsulating it in its matrix. Once encapsulated, microbes in the environment start to break down / eat the hydrocarbon, until all that is left is carbon dioxide and water. This remediation is is done in situ with no toxic residue, and is a process that can take between 12 and 24 hours, depending on the type of fuel spill.
Coverage: We recommend one litre of Oil Blitz per one litre of hydrocarbon spilled.
How to Clean Hydrocarbon Spills from Forecourts, Pathways and Roads
Oil Blitz has proven to bioremediate almost 100% of hydrocarbon spills on solid ground is as little as 24 hours.
When there is a hydrocarbon spill on the footpath or on the forecourt it is slippery and there is a blue green sheen. Take a bottle of Oil Blitz and spray the liquid onto the petrol / diesel, covering the spill. Within a couple of minutes the hydrocarbon and Oil Blitz start to bond and the liquid on the ground starts to turn a milky white. What has happened is that the hydrocarbon has been absorbed by or encapsulated inside the Oil Blitz – taken inside the matrix – and the process of breaking down the diesel has already started.
Trapped inside the matrix with the diesel are microbes – micro organisms that exist in oxygen in the air – that will eat the diesel. The inside of the matrix is like a greenhouse, which help the microbes to multiple at many times the normal rate, and therefore the process of breaking down the diesel into its constituent parts – CO2 and H2O – will happen at many times the normal rate.
After 10 minutes or so, take a bucket of water or a hose and wash the milky white liquid away into the nearest drain. All of the diesel spill will have been absorbed by the Oil Blitz, and the ground will be completely clean and free of any diesel residue. The milky white liquid is completely inert and environmentally safe to wash away.
The matrix with the hydrocarbon inside will continue to work until all of the diesel has been remediated – approximately 24 hours.
How To Clean Petrol or Diesel Spills From Lorries or Cars
The Problem: When filling up tanks in cars or commercial vehicles fuel drips out of the nozzle and onto the tanks or down the side of the vehicle, leading to staining on the vehicle and contamination on the ground
The Solution: Have a 1l bottle of Oil Blitz (Oil Blitz) in the car as part of your safety kit. Simply spray the spill – either on the ground or on the vehicle, and walk away. The Oil Blitz will absorb the fuel in a number of minutes and render it inert and non viscous and it will be washed away in the next rain shower. Or after 20 minutes take a hose or a bucket of water and wash it clean. Meanwhile the Oil Blitz will start to 100% remediate the hydrocarbon spill.
