               Smart Sponge® Technology


•   Smart Sponge is an innovative filter media that:
    – Removes or eliminates contaminants such as hydrocarbons and
      bacteria at the street level on contact with limited or no infrastructure
    – Is deployed in specific quantities based on engineering calculation
    – Provides solutions that can help reduce beach closures
    – Utilizes non-invasive technology that requires no electricity or moving
      parts and is recyclable.
    – Fully encapsulates recovered oil, preventing it from leaching or leaking
      back into the environment

         ABSORPTION vs. ADSORPTION

• Absorption--Contaminant is trapped within the structure

•Adsorption—Contaminant is trapped on the surface of the structure

Westchester County, NY

 • Shortly after initial installation of
   35 filters in 2004 a fuel spill
   occurred and the Smart Sponge
   successfully captured the
   contamination before it entered
   the stormwater pipes.
 • This early capture prevented a
   costly cleanup and led to an
   airport wide implementation the
   following year.
