OilSorb Organoclay is a highly versatile, organically-modified clay filtration product to remove oil, grease, PCB, creosote and other organic hydrocarbons from water. It can be used stand-alone, or in combination with other treatment technologies as a pre-polisher.

OilSorbis a cost-saving filtration media - When used alone, OilSorb™ removes oil at 700% the rate of activated carbon and will reduce your operating costs by 50% or more. When used as a pre-treatment for activated carbon in applications involving oil and grease removal, OilSorb™ removes the oil and grease effectively, allowing the activated carbon to remove the soluble organic compounds more efficiently.

OilSorbincreases the efficiency of the treatment process - The quarternary amine-treated clay pellets have the ability to capture 50 - 60% of their weight in oil, grease and other low solubility organic compounds. Used upstream from activated carbon or downstream of other oil removal processes, OilSorb™ optimizes the overall system performance and reduces costs.

OilSorb™ can be easily disposed of in a variety of ways


A line of flocculants that are useful in treating waste water streams of 50,000 gallons per month (or less). They are able to remove oils, other organics and heavy metals simultaneously without the need for pre-treating with acids and salts.


An organically-modified clay that removes negatively-charged tannic and humic compounds that act as pre-cursors for trihalomethane (THM) formation.


An activated carbon containing product useful in the elimination of methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) from water.


An activated carbon containing product , EC-400 is beneficial for the removal of acetone in water streams.

Filtration Systems

In addition to providing filtration media, Biomin has engineered filtration systems that economically remove oil from water.
