A Sustainable Alternative to Oil Spill Dispersants
When compared to traditional dispersants Envirofluid’s Triple7 BioConcentrate works differently. It does not create a persistent emulsion that can descend in the water column towards the ocean floor. Instead the product is designed to create very short-lived micro emulsions that break up an oil spill on the surface from where it evaporates due to exposure to sunlight or biodegrades due to natural action. Thus we manage to keep the oil on the surface and decrease the negative impacts on marine life .
4-in-1 Oil Spill Clean-up and Herding Agent
Triple7 BioConcentrate works in 4 different ways., as an Oil Herding Agent, Marine Degreaser, a Surface Cleaning Agent and Oil dispersant.
Safe for Marine Life and the Environment
Unlike traditional methods of Oil Herding and clean up, Triple7 BioConcentrate offers a powerful, safe and effective oil separation action without the potential for the serious environmental effects.
Triple7 BioConcentrate is formulated with renewable resources and works in a way not to effect marine plant or animal life . The product has undergone testing and and has no known adverse effects on sea water quality. Accordingly this product is listed by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) for use on oil spills in Australian waters. There are no known restrictions on its use in general marine environments.
Triple7 BioConcentrate is available in:
Triple7 BioConcentrate can be diluted effectively with a wide range of oil spills crude oil, heavy oil, residual fuels, diesel, kerosene, white spirits and lubricants including mineral oils.
Oil Herding in Open Ocean & Uncontained Environments of the Seas
In open-ocean and uncontained bodies of water Triple7 BioConcentrate can be applied as a spray from surface vessels or aircraft in a similar way to any dispersant. When applied to the centre of the spill the product causes oil to rapidly herd outwards into thin bands, which are then further broken up by wind and wave action.
Oil Herding In Sea or Ocean Shore
When a spill reaches the shores and is contained by structures and/or booms ., Triple7 BioConcentrate can be applied directly to the oil slick . Hence Once applied at 10-12% concentrations the agent forces the oil to rapidly migrate in an outwards direction where it collects against the booms. The concentrations or dilution Ratios depend on the thickness of Crude and its viscosity. In such an application the product actually concentrates the oil spill into a smaller surface area where it can be more effectively collected and/or burnt. If burning or igniting the crude for disposal purposes is contemplated, then please note that the oil Triple7 BioConcentrate will not affect the burn efficiency.
The most common method of capturing the oil is with the use of lipophilic booms (high or low density polyethylene), oil/ water phase separation systems (fabric, flood, filtration or centrifugal) or other oil collection systems.
A Surface Cleaning Agent (SCA) is a product which, when applied to oil on shorelines or other firm surfaces facilitates the removal of the oil by natural processes or cleanup activities.
In this type of application Triple7 BioConcentrate functions like a ‘quick break’ degreaser by rapidly lifting oil soiling from surfaces without forming a permanent emulsion. The product may be applied as a broad spectrum spray, metered into the oil body or boom applied by saturating hydrophobic booms with the Triple7 BioConcentrate solution.
Shelf Life & Stockpiling
An ideal cleaner and marine degreaser for oil based soiling and oil spills on all types on natural and man-made surfaces including: piers. It is non corrosive and does not react with the cleaning surface. The product can also be used for tank cleaning and as an effective oil vapour dispersant.
Because Triple7 BioConcentrate is safe for release into marine environments it is the marine degreaser of choice where waste water run-off is difficult to manage.
Safe for Equipment
Unlike caustic based cleaners, Triple7 BioConcentrate releases soiling without reacting with the cleaning surface, making it safe for metals, plastics, rubbers and fabrics
Free from any Regulatory RestrictionsTriple 7 BioConcentrate has no known application or recorded restrictions in a water environment and no known legal restrictions limiting the use of Triple7 BioConcentrate.
Case Studies & More
With strong evidence suggesting that chemical oil spill dispersants may be causing far more environmental damage than they prevent the search is on for better methods to clean up oil spills. Envirofluid has been at the forefront in Australia in pioneering these new methods and has developed a break through product in the fight against oil spills.
