Integricote develops superhydrophobic/oleophilic absorbent material for crude oil cleanup

Integricote is proud to announce the launch of a new product that selectively absorbs hydrocarbons/oil from aqueous hydrocarbon/oil mixtures or emulsions. Rooted in nanotechnology developed three years ago, Integricote’s new oleophilic/hydrophobic materials are now ready for market after extensive trials and testing. This technology is immensely adept at recovering hydrocarbons/oils following environmentally/ecologically disastrous events (e.g., oil spills/leaks) – effectively reducing the risk of marine pollution while minimizing monetary losses by recovering lost hydrocarbons/oils.
