Oil Spill Response, oil spill cleanup

Oil Spill Response

Oil spills bring to mind tanker disasters and pipeline accidents, yet these high-profile incidents make up only a small portion of the oil entering our oceans annually, accounting for just 8%. A much more significant contributor, responsible for tens of millions of gallons of oil infiltrating our waterways, is the persistent leakage and spills from industrial and commercial facilities. It is imperative to call oil spill cleanup companies with emergency response and hazmat cleanup. HazChem will respond 24/7 to assist with oil spill containment, oil spill clean up, hazmat cleanup, oil recycling & oil disposal.

Often referred to as “invisible oil pollution,” these smaller-scale spills often go unnoticed in contrast to the dramatic spills that grab headlines. The primary culprits behind this pollution are cars, trucks, fleet vehicles, and heavy equipment. These vehicles play a major role in introducing oil into soil and nearby bodies of water. Additionally, non-point sources like roads, parking lots, storm drains, wastewater treatment plants, and sewage systems serve as accessible pathways for oil to contaminate the environment.

Oil Spill Containment

Oil spills pose serious threats to public health, the environment, and the economy. Oil spill containment is necessary as our society becomes increasingly reliant on oil-based products for various purposes.  The risk of oil spills and their consequences grows. Products derived from petroleum, such as gasoline, heating oil, and plastics, serve vital roles in our daily lives. Even non-petroleum oils, like vegetable oils and animal fats, are being more widely used, carrying their own potential hazards.
