Mount Crawford firm cleaning up – literally

newspaper-headerEastern BioPlastics in Mount Crawford has invented a breakthrough absorbent and in February launched sales of the product, Environmental BioProtector oil absorbent, which is made from 100% recycled poultry products.

Environmental BioProtector has been approved by the EPA and is 99 percent bio-based per the USDA. The absorbent absorbs more than seven times its weight in oil or oil like materials and comes in bags of loose absorbent, in spill pillows, or spill socs.

The performance of the product is far about typical clay, cellulose, or other absorbents and it is priced well below the market price for absorbents creating a significant economic benefit to its use to clean up oil spills or drips around the home, shop, or factory.
