Harena Technical Information

Fuel and oil spillage

Our Harena product is able to fully bond with hydrocarbons found naturally in fuels and oils, including synthetics. Fuel and oil is adsorbed by a unique coating until it is fully and permanently bonded.

Harena will adsorb from a wide variety of surfaces including concrete and asphalt, providing a complete clean without residue or staining. Due to its hydrophobic properties, it is effective in both wet and dry conditions.

Highly flammable spillages such as petrol are rendered safe once fully bonded to Harena, thereby reducing the risk of secondary accidents during cleanup. The adsorbed material is bonded irreversibly to the surface coating preventing release into the local environment.

Used Harena will become a dry, non-toxic crumb and unlike many alternative absorbents, will not form a mud or leach over time. Harena will remain fully hydrophobic even after use.


Highway construction and accident safety

Used at an accident site, Harena will greatly increase site safety. The rapid adsorption of fuels and oils will minimise the risk of environmental damage, slippage and fire. Reducing the potential of secondary accidents.

Our Harena product is able to bond with and remove fresh bitumen from the highway surface to assist with an accident cleanup process or with highway repair and construction.application_harena002


Aviation and airport safety

Our Harena product has the ability to improve safety and reduce the risk of potential accidents at airports hangers, and aircraft maintenance depots. In an industry where the safety is the top priority, Harena is the best solution to reduce accident risk from slippage, fire or environmental damage.

Polymer spillage

Harena has the ability to adsorb many liquid form polymer spills, containing the spill permanently within its unique coating and allowing for easy removal from the site.


Environmental cleanup – land and water

Harena can be very effective in an environmental cleanup operation, including the cleanup of waterborne spillage. Used on a water surface, Harena will float until it has adsorbed the spillage. Once adsorbed the used product will drop to the bottom and naturally biodegrade safely. Our product is effective on both fresh and saltwater enabling an effective clean of spillages of any environmental scale.
