All of us understand just how damaging oil spills can be if they reach our coastal marsh areas and shorelines. The developers and suppliers of Cytosol™ BioSolvent are committed to creating and providing effective methods of removing the damaging oil from these areas in a safe and environmentally sound manner. The CytoSol™ BioSolvent was specifically chosen for its unique oil-removing abilities and green, low toxic characteristics.
The CytoSol™ team have increased their efforts to assist in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. A regional response center has been set up in Lafayette, Louisiana along with CytoSol™ BioSolvent product staged in New Orleans, Louisiana.
CytoSol™ BioSolvent is a renewable biosolvent. It is a non-volatile biosolvent produced from vegetable oils. It presents a low toxicity element into the environment, and contains no surfactants or petroleum distillates. When applied onto oil affected areas, the CytoSol™ BioSolvent is able to aid in the removal of oil. We generally refer to it's oil removing nature as a "lift and float" action making the oil available for easier recovery. The oil is typically removed from the environment using conventional oil/water skimmers and absorbent boom products. Once collected the oil along with residual CytoSol™ BioSolvent can be recycled as a burner fuel product.
We can provide the EPA marine toxicity studies along with field application case history reports where CytoSol™ BioSolvent was used to remove oil from mussel beds, oiled marsh plants, oiled creek beds, and oiled shorelines along the San Francisco Bay are in California.
In 1997, CytoSol BioSolvent was listed on the EPA's National Contingency Plan (NCP) Schedule of Products and licensed by OSPR in the State of California as a shoreline cleaner.
