* Absorbs oil and other hydrocarbons while it rejects water!
* Absorbs 15 times as much hydrocarbon as the equivalent weight of clay, making it much more practical and less expensive!
* Completely safe and easy to use
* Dispose of Hydroweed in your Garden!
Made from a select type of peat moss, with processing that sterilizes the individual fibers and kills off insects, Hydro-Weed is a safe, environmentally friendly product.
Surprisingly it won't absorb water, and will not release the oil and other hydrocarbons that it absorbs so effectively, making it ideal for cleaning up any type of oil or chemical spill.
While peat moss is normally used in gardening to retain moisture around plant roots, Hydro-Weed differs in that it rejects water indefinitely, but instead locks up petroleum or chemicals and heavy metals, preventing them from leaking or washing out once they're absorbed.
Any type of hydrocarbon leak on the surface of water be it an ocean, lake, stream or river presents a danger of contamination to the water as well as all living creatures, vegetation and shore lines, but sprinkle Hydro-Weed on the top of the spill and it will be 'locked up' so that it cannot stick to any living creature, vegetation or shore line. It also prevents the chemical from sinking to the bottom once it is in its fiber.
A bird landing on the top of a spill treated with Hydro-Weed would simply take off again without a single drop of oil on its feathers.
One pound of Hydro-Weed will absorb eight to twelve times its weight in medium weight oil and that's fifteen times more than clay absorbers.
Hydro-Weed is non corrosive, non polluting and non toxic. It's completely safe and easy to use. Once the spill has been cleaned up, you can simply dispose of the Hydro-Weed by spreading it along a fence line or elsewhere for weed control. Nature will then provide the microbes who will eat the oil or chemical contained in it and the peat moss construction of the Hydro-Weed will benefit the soil just as any other peat moss would do.
Hydro-Weed is ideal for those living near a body of water, boat owners, and anyone else who regularly uses chemicals or encounters spills.
