Test 1 srl

Company Information

Description

Test 1 srl has developed a unique sponge-like material that only soaks up oil and hugely outperforms existing spill absorbing materials. In only a few minutes, the material absorbs every kind of hydrocarbon up to 35 times its own weight and can be reused more than 100 times. One kilogram of PUFF sponge can absorb three tonnes of oil in any weather and sea condition and in any location. The absorbed oil can be recovered for recovery and processing instead of disposing it, like current methods.

There is also an opportunity to use the product in revolutionary filters for areas such as produced water to further recover oil in the process
