1 Recoverit The Worlds First Truely Environmentally Friendly Solution for Oil and Hydrocarbon Pollution Recover-Reduce-Recycle

2 What is Recoverit Recoverit comes as white or speckled granule that can ADSORB all types of oils/hydrocarbons be they Mineral, Vegetable, Animal or Synthetic Is Hydrophobic and Oliphilic Becomes a glutinous gel when attached to oil Can be used on Water, Sand and Soil or in the Atmosphere.-see diagrams Adsorbs up to 10 times its own weight I Kilo of Recoverit can pick up between 100 to 600 litres of oil through re-use Additionally picks up VOCs,H 2 SO 4, H 2 S Only absorbs 0.1% water

3 Recoverit and Recycling Separates very easily from collected oils Separates oil/water in emulsified state Recoverit can be reused many times by specific equipment developed for Recoverits unique continuous processes. Recoverit is environmentally friendly and reduces or completely eliminates secondary pollution by redeeming hydrocarbons from the process and eliminating need for landfill Recovered hydrocarbons can be easily transformed into bio-diesel Spent Recoverit may be recycled into hot mix bitumen

4 Recoverit in The Environment Is Non-Toxic, Non-Hazardous and Non- Flammable Reduces impact of oil spill on wild life as completely harmless to marine life, birds and humans Work in situ at sea Work in situ on beaches Eliminates need for detergents/dispersants

5 Recoverit at Sea Keeps collected oil afloat indefinitely allowing time for orderly pick-up Product can be coloured for easy spotting of oil spill by aircraft Works on all types of oil Works even in bad/rough weather Can refloat oil from sea bed Can maintain buoyancy of damaged vessel by pumping into hull

6 Recoverit-Application Small Spills-Simply apply by hand- completely safe Medium Spills-Can be air blown onto the surface or underneath the water, natural buoyancy will collect and float Large Spills-Can be dropped from air in large quantities where wave action helps mix and adsorb

7 Recoverit on Land Eliminates need for long wait from use of microbes and vapour release Removes need for transportation of contaminated sand or soil as can work continuously on site. By cleaning quickly, efficiently and in situ can add considerable value to real estate Combination of soil cleaning and air filters can be used to clean up contaminated sights in crowded environments such as old petrol stations in city areas Emergency spill kits for highways, service stations, power plants and telecommunication relay stations

8 Recoverit in Air Can extract fumes very easily from confined spaces such wings of aircraft Filter hydrocarbons from funnels, motorway tunnels, storage silos Extract fumes from spray booths and printing establishments Cleaning of industrial premises Extract fumes from tankers Filters in air conditioning vents, Filters in vents of storage silos for hydrocarbons

9 Recoverit Inland Recoverit can remove hydrocarbons in water treatment plants Efficiently clean lakes and rivers especially when water/oil emulsified. Remove hydrocarbons from bore/ground water

10 Existing Methods for Cleaning Oil Spills and Contaminated Land Detergents, Straw,Sawdust,Absorbent Pads, Kitty Litter, PolymersDetergents, Straw,Sawdust,Absorbent Pads, Kitty Litter, Polymers Single UseSingle Use CarcinogenicCarcinogenic Doesnt float on waterDoesnt float on water Soaks up water as well as oilSoaks up water as well as oil Dispersants just hide the problemDispersants just hide the problem You then have to dispose of the oil and the product you used in cleaning the spill through landfill or incinerationYou then have to dispose of the oil and the product you used in cleaning the spill through landfill or incineration

23 Where Recoverit can be Applied Water Rivers Lakes Contaminated Ground Water Treatment Plants Sewerage Plants Canals Drainage/Pipes

24 Where Recoverit can be Applied Land Disused Petrol/Gas Stations Petrochemical Plants Emulsified Oil from Drilling Process Sand/Beaches Oil Sands and Asphalt Telecommunication Stations Power Plants Runways Tanker Farms Grease Traps Docklands Transportation of Hazardous Chemicals in Semi-Dry State

25 Where Recoverit can be Applied Air Stacks from Motorway Tunnels Confined Spaces such as Wings of Aircraft and Tankers Fumes from Oil Storage Silos Power Plant Stacks Funnels

27 Environmental Benefits Minimising ecological damage due to Oil Spills Greatly reducing long term effect of Oil Spills Elimination of need for Landfill Safe for Animals and Marine Mammals Reduce risk of Personnel Hazards Recycling of Redeemed Hydrocarbons

28 Economical Benefits Work in Situ Reduction in Landfill, Transport, Disposal Reduce Insurance Costs Recovering and or Recycling of Oil/hydrocarbons Converted oils into bio-diesel financially viable Ease of Use of Equipment Transportability of System Reduction in Penalties from Environmental Agencies Reduce Workers Compensation Premiums

29 Recoverit Most importantly Recoverit does the job of cleaning up more effectively, more cost efficiently and more environmentally friendly than any other product or system. SIMPLE to understand and SIMPLE to use
