That’s A HazWOPER! Spill Acronyms Are No Joke

When was the last time you gave some TCLP to your spill clean up products?

Did you think we meant TLC, and that was a typo? Nope. TCLP is one of many tests and certifications XSORB has successfully passed to make our flagship product the industry standard for safe, effective spill containment and disposal, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Acronyms are everywhere.

Trapping Toxics Forever

So, TCLP. This stands for Toxic Characteristic Leaching Procedure, which determines leaching rates and toxicity levels as required by numerous state and federal agencies.

Our approval rating means you can trust XSORB totrap liquid indefinitely. XSORB will never biodegrade. A millennium from now, the spill will still be rendered harmless: non-toxic, non-flammable, absorbed by the most potent spill containment solution on the market today.

No Bumping the BMP!

Then there are BMP standards Best Management Practices. Spill clean up kits such as ourFiberLink Universal 6.5 gallon Spill Kitcomply with HazWOPER regulation 29 CFR 1910.120.

What does this mean? Basically, that we’re OSHA-approved (another acronym! Occupational Safety and Health Administration) to handle and dispose of hazardous spills in an economical, efficient, environmentally sound manner.

So while some spill products may claim they’re capable of handling even the most challenging spill scenarios, they could be telling whoppers. When it comes to smart spill solutions, choose the brand that’s certified with all the acronyms in the spill containment field. Impact Absorbents not only makes spill containment and spill clean up products that meet the standards for the EPA, OSHA, and BMP you can probably create additional inside jokes with all these acronyms.
