American Green Ventures: SpillFix

American Green Ventures Inc. will exhibit and demonstrate the revolutionary SpillFix® Industrial Organic Absorbent at booth No. 2165 during the Railway Interchange trade show through Oct. 7 in Minneapolis.

"Whether it's a commuter train or a freight train, time is money and it’s important to stay on schedule," said David Roache, chief executive officer of Galuku Group North America, the parent company of American Green Ventures. "With SpillFix, operators can quickly and efficiently clean up any oil or fuel spill around railroad tracks that could potentially injure commuters or railroad workers. Plus, SpillFix is an organic, renewable resource that is non-carcinogenic and contains no chemicals, so it’s environmentally safe."

When compared to clay-based absorbents, SpillFix clients need 80 percent less product to clean up spills in less than half the time, according to the company. SpillFix is dust-free, non-abrasive and there is no after residue that’s often left with heavy sticky clay or absorbent pads. SpillFix can be reused to clean up more than one spill due to its absorbency, further adding to its cost savings. SpillFix is also landfill safe, providing lower disposal cost than other absorbent products with no environmental impact.
