PetroGuard and PetroGuard-D Approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency

PetroGuard and PetroGuard-D Approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency


Our premier products PetroGuard and PetroGuard-D have been approved by the United States Environmental Protection Agency after passing a rigorous review process. PetroGuard has been certified by the USEPA for chemical spills and PetroGuard-D has been certified for oil spill response and remediation on water or land. These products fall under the USEPA as sorbents under Title 40 of the Code of Federal Regulation of the National Contingency Plan.

PetroGuard is an advanced absorption technology utilizing “enhanced molecular capture” to instantly hyper-immobilize, stabilize and solidify hydrocarbon based chemicals including most reactive compounds.

Examples of organics absorbed and immobilized by PetroGuard are:

  • Chlorosilanes and related chemicals
  • Titanium tetrachloride
  • Silicone oils
  • Polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons
  • Chlorinated hydrocarbons
  • Trichloroethylene
  • Styrene
  • Naphtha

Features of PetroGuard are its high absorbent capacity. As a matter of fact it is one of the most efficient absorbents available. PetroGuard is more efficient and cost effective than conventional “oil dry” or “kitty litter” type products due to speed of absorption and solidification and the manpower savings in time and lost productivity. The most unique and important characteristic of PetroGuard is it will not release or leach the chemicals EVEN UNDER PRESSURE.

PetroGuard-D is a high capacity instantly solidifying absorbent. It is used to immobilize liquid hydrocarbon and chlorocarbon (oil and common hydrocarbon based chemicals) spills to a recoverable solid. Like PetroGuard, PetroGuard-D will not release or leach even under pressure and PetroGuard-D will float indefinitely making it easier to skim from the surface of water.

Features of PetroGuard-D are:

  • Cost Effective
  • Fast Acting
  • Labor Saving
  • Hydrophobic and Oleophilic
  • Non-toxic
  • Permanently buoyant
  • Super absorbent
  • Easily collected and disposed of by incineration or land filling

According to our customers, the EPA certification substantiates their use of the product. However, they all feel the best reason to use PetroGuard or PetroGuard-D is because of its overall return on investment. One of our customers recently said: “there is no other product we have used that has a better return on investment than PetroGuard. The fact that these products don’t leach once they absorb the chemicals has saved us thousands of dollars in time, labor, ancillary products and lost productivity.
