Unlike other technologies which are commonly used for open water spill response – such as dispersants and in situ burning – IMBIBER BEADS® has been proven by third party testing to be non-toxic and to present no risk to the environment or marine life.
Third party laboratory testing in two different locations have come back conclusive that IMBIBER BEADS® are non-toxic.
"In this case no toxicity was observed in any test concentration and the sample may be considered 'inert' even at the 100% sample extract concentration."
