Use and disposal

Öl-Ex products on polyurethane basis

practically absorb no water, therefore, an expensive disposal of such an oil and water mixture is not necessary.  This results in an unbeatable cost-effectiveness advantage over water-oil mixtures and when used outside during rain or under wet conditions.  Öl-Ex can easily be exploited for generating thermal energy and therefore does not need to be disposed of perforce.  This saves on costly primary energy and provides replacement fuel.

Generally, oil-saturated Öl-Ex burns almost with no residue, leaving a minimum ash content of approx. 2 %.

Öl-Ex rigid

per se is not combustible.  The exceptionally stable granular structure of Öl-Ex rigid ensures that the binding agent does not release any oil even under high pressure.  This ensures its safe deposit, in turn preventing oil being discharged from causing pollution.
