The original SorbWeb™ Plus secondary oil containment system incorporates an oleophilic adsorbent layer, “SAM” is part of a developing green technology known as a permeable reactive barrier . It is an absorbent geocomposite with an exceptionally high affinity for hydrocarbons and it replaces the adsorbent layer in the SorbWeb™ Plus system giving it the extraordinary ability to manage chronic leaks, localize and isolate small accidental spills and making clean up quick and easy to save time and money .
Permeable reactive barrier SAM contains a proprietary oil immobilizer trapped between two layers of geotextile fabric designed to absorb, filter and lock in hydrocarbons. SAM will remain permeable to water even after exposure to the contaminant. These unique properties make this special geotextile the ideal solution for numerous applications including:
- Oil containment
- Environmental remediation
- Secondary containment
- In situ groundwater remediation
