The Value of Marine Sanctuaries

Recreation is good for the economy, as visitors to the Monterey Bay marine sanctuary proved, pumping a staggering $1.2 billion into the regional economy in 2011, according to a new study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Clearly, caring for our waterways is good for both the planet and its inhabitants.

We agree, and have always done our part to ensure our marine environments remain pristine. Impact Absorbents offers fifteen spill kits for use on waterways, such as the XSORB Oil Absorbent 6.5 gallon Spill Kit, which meets all OSHA requirements and comes complete with a six quart bottle of XSORB Select Oil Absorbent, two FiberDuck Oil Absorbent Socks, ten FiberDuck Heavy-eight Oil Absorbent Sorbent Pads, two disposal bags, two hazmat labels, Nitrile protective gloves, a pair of splash goggles and a dust mask.

Of course, you might not need the full monty. Our Oil Absorbent Bilge Booms are a popular and economical way to clean water in sumps or reduce contamination from bilge discharge. Designed to work while floating, Oil Absorbent Bilge Booms repel water indefinitely and are safe and simple to use.

Dealing with static? Our Anti-Static Heavyweight Oil Absorbent Pads are constructed from meltblown polypropylene fibers that have been combined with a static-resistant additive and packaged in static dissipative bags. These pads absorb oil-based liquids, including jet fuel, gasoline, mineral spirits, and acetone. They’re perfect for catching drips and soaking up spills. The heavyweight construction makes them extremely resilient and absorbent, and the bright white color makes absorbed liquids easier to see

Whatever type of spill containment or spill clean up situation you may face in a marine environment, Impact Absorbents has you covered. And that’s a boon in any economy.
