A proprietary blend of USDA food-grade polymers that are non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-carcinogenic, and non-hazardous. BCI Solidifying Polymer is listed on the EPA National Contingency Plan Product Schedule as a “Solidifier” for use on oil spills in the navigable waters of the United States. Oil Solidifying Polymer is sold in bulk containers or in spill kits.
Once solidified, hydrocarbons are bonded molecularly to the polymer and cannot leach out. Thus, the solidified polymer/hydrocarbon can be disposed of in landfills instead of being treated as hazardous waste.
