SAPROPEL – ORGANIC FERTILIZER
Dear Customers and Partners!
Term "sapropel" means "putrid slime", it was proposed by Lautenberg in 1901 and by G. Potogne in
1904 irrespectively. Term as Gyttia may occur, but it didn’t expand through the scientific literature. In
therapeutic muds group they are consolidated under common name peloids, which means slimes.
Sapropel is bottom sediments of freshwater basins, originated as a result of oxygenless decaying of
faded aquatic vegetation, life forms reminders and soil pieces drifted by water.
Sapropel relates to renewable natural resources and is a unique natural organic feedstock. Its
sediments are typical only for freshwater basins. Its accumulation processes continue nowadays and
moreover for majority of water basins it is a progressive character. Sapropel’s chemical compound and
peculiarities of different minefields are significantly different and defined by its formation conditions
and by lakes’ flora and fauna. Three main components are detached in sapropel: water (from 60 to
97%), ash part (sand, loam, carbonates, phosphates silica and iron compounds, etc.) and organic
compound of very complicated and non-uniform structure (not less than 15%). In general sapropel is
composed by water, organic and non-organic parts. Depending on mineral part quantitative content
sapropel is differentiated as organic, where non-organic (ash) part composes less than 30% in-
equivalent of dry substance and multi-ashes sapropel as a result of various mineral compounds
domination. The last are subdivided for carbonates (СаО), silica (SiO2) and mixed, containing
approximately equal parts of SiO2 and СаО. Besides silica and calcium mineral part of sapropel may
contain compounds of iron, magnesium, potassium, aluminium, sulphur, phosphorous and other
elements. Sapropel’s mineral part contains great part of microelements as Со, Мn, Сu, В, Zn, I, Вг,
Мо, Cr, Ве, Ni, Аg, Sn, Рb, Sr, Тi, which are significant for sapropel valuation as fertilizers,
therapeutic agents, supplements for farm livestock.
The most valuable part of sapropel is biologically active substances and a set of microelements, which
positively influence on people, animals and plants soundness. It contains albumen, fats, protein,
vitamins, hormones, carotenoids, antioxidants, growth promotants and a range of other substances.
These substances set and their concentration is stipulated by sapropel’s sediment conditions, lakes’
flora and fauna composition, biochemical zone and bedding deepness. Lack of oxygen and
insignificant temperature variations create specific conditions for bottom sediments, where all alive
and faded cells of animals, microalgae, humus, fungus, etc. are incurred to slow dispensation for
components – amino acids, low molecular peptides, nucleotides, nucleosides with output of “half
dead” cells and tissues of high active biological substances.
Compare to lignum fossil sapropel’s organic mass differs by higher content of easy hydrolyzing
materials, including hemicellulose nitrogen compounds. Sapropel are exclusively rich with nitrogen.
None of fossils as lignum fossil, shale or crude contains such nitrogen concentration as sapropel does.
Sapropel’s mineral part contains great part of microelements as Со, Мn, Сu, В, Zn, etc.
Sapropel’s organic element represents aggregate of plans and animals remains and their decay
products. A compound of organic materials includes:
- Plans and animals remains of different decaying stage
- Monomeric compounding – biopolymer hydrolyze products
- Microorganisms’ vital functions products, vitamins and other biologically active compounds
- Polymeric compounding, occurred as a result of biotic and abiotic destruction and organic materials
A lot of microorganisms colonizing sapropel sediments synthesize vitamins, ferments, antibiotics and
other biologically active substances. Sapropel contain B complex vitamins (В1, В12, ВЗ, В6), Е, С, В,
Р, carotinoids. Many of ferments as catalase, peroxidase, reductase and protease were identified in
Sapropeles are related to natural biopolymers and are valuable natural feedstock for industry, medicine
SAPROPEL BASED FERTILIZER
Sapropel fertilizers are produced of freshwater basins’ bottom
sediments, which were formed by fade aquatic vegetation, living
organisms remains and elements of soil humus, lignum fossil,
loam and send.
Sapropel’s mineral part representing the major part of sapropel
fertilizer contains large scale of microelements as: Со, Мn, Сu,
В, Zn, Вr, Мо, V, Сr, Ве, Ni, Аg, Sn, РЬ, Аs, Ва, Sr, Тi.
High quality organic and mineral fertilizers are produced of
sapropel sediments. They are used for all soil types and plants
kinds purposely to increase humus, nitrogen and microelements
content in soil. Sapropel using as fertilizer improves g-mechanic
soil structure, its humidity and aeration. Sapropel fertilizer contributes to soil composition
mobilization, leads to self-purification from disease-causing plants, fungus and harmful
microorganisms. Sapropel fertilizer usage improves soil structure, positively impacts on water and air
modes. As a consequence of sapropel fertilizer usage heavy metals harmfulness threshold significantly
decreases in plant’s knots. Depending on soil type grain crop, vegetables and root crop yields increase
for 40-50% after sapropel treatment as plants growth natural biostimulant. Albumen and carotene
quantity increases sharply in plants receiving sapropel fertilizer, starch quantity in potato increases for
15% and sugar in beet for 40%.
Sapropel fertilizer is rich with B complex vitamins (В1, В12, ВЗ, В6), Е, С, О, Р, caratinoids, ferments
as catalase, peroxidase, reductase and protease.
Sapropel fertilizers is irreplaceable product using for soil radical improvement, its remediation and
Organic sapropel fertilizer placement
Sapropel average norms efficiency increases after preliminary sweetening of acid soil and placement
of mineral fertilizer in N60Р60К60 norm upon condition of using ridge-forming tillage and work in
surface tiller of organic and mineral fertilizers, observing minimum tillage principals and fertilizers are
concentrated in roots and tuber formation zone developed by ridges.
Sapropel placement methods influenced on soil agrochemical indicators within plough-layer. N a year
of sapropel fertilizer work in surface humus content increasing from 3,2% to 5,0% was admitted, at the
same time organic fertilizer spread within profile at moldboard plowing shown an increase of efficient
organic substance only for 0,6% .
During sapropel work in surface and its concentration in ridge zone it was observed more active
mineralization of organic and plow layer saturation with phosphor slip forms and exchange potassium.
Phosphor, potassium, magnesium and starch content increased in tubers. At sapropel buried dressing,
especially of its high norms, tuber starch content decreasing was observed.
Heavy metals accumulation influenced by
sapropel was not distinguished as in soil as in
Sapropel fertilizers have a range of advantages
over other fertilizers types, specifically:
- Over lignum fossil – sapropel contains larger
range of organic materials necessary for plants.
Sapropel are extremely rich with nitrogen. None
of fossils as lignum fossil, shale or crude contains
such nitrogen concentration as sapropel does.
Sapropel are notable for higher thermal capacity
than lignum fossil (up to 0,95 cal/g degree).
- Over other zoogenous composted fertilizers – sapropel contains less weed plants, is not infected with
malignant bacterium and flora. During long-term storage in packing nitrogen losses were not observed.
- In contradiction from chemical fertilizers environmentally friendly sapropel does not influence in
harmful and toxic manner on people and animals, but alternately decreases niter, nitrite, sol and heavy
- Sapropel application terms and placement into soil methods are not differ from terms and methods of
other organic fertilizers application, but there are some advantages: during sapropel application
“randomly” along an area before plowing the losses of nitrogen were not observed even at tilling long
Fertilizer validity period is traced up to 14 years. Sapropel fertilizer is used for soil rehabilitation and
- At application into soil it improves soil’s mechanical structure, it’s water consuming and water
retaining ability, gives humus increasing in soil on 2nd-3d year, activates soil processes. In
consequence of slow solvability of product’s acting compounds provides plants balanced nutrition with
all fertilizer elements.
- Fertilizer application increases grain-crops’ yields, vegetables and root crops; it increases albumen
and protein quantity in plants cultivation products. Also the product can be used as conserving agent
for potato tuber storage (tubers should be covered with thin layer of sapropel). The highest efficiency
was observed at light sandy and stony soils, at soils supersaturated with mineral fertilizers.
- It should be mentioned that during mutual application of mineral fertilizers simultaneously with
sapropel heavy metals harmfulness threshold is decreased, tubers remain clean and do not accumulate

Feeding sapropel is useful supplement for animals and poultry, it contains a set of biologically active
substances increasing pigs, cattle stock and poultry’s productivity, and it improves resistance to
diseases of different kinds.
Feeding sapropel was designed as a supplement for all kinds of animals and poultry’s diet naturally
with humidity not more than 65%.
Dry feeding sapropel may be used in compound feed industry for all kinds of combined feed
production as an organic and mineral supplement (premix) and as filler for vitamin premixes.
Our animals are cared by the nature. During millenniums it has been created unique supplementary
fertilizer containing not only all necessary nourishments, but also healing components normalizing
metabolic activity, reproductive and immunoresistance functions. At all times such natural formations
as sapropel, lignum fossile, bentonite clays and malmstone have been used for animals with a
preventive goal. Sapropel is used as a supplement not only for feeding stuff reduction, but also for the
purpose of diet beneficiation with mineral materials, amino acids, vitamins, and biologically active
materials. Sapropel represents valuable vitamin and
Replacement of sapropel’s OR part provides nutrient
budget cheapening for 7 - 10% and in case of 10%
replacement provides poultry broiler meat production
profitability on a level of control group and expensive
nutrition ingredients saving. According to economic
indicators additional usage of sapropel with humidity
of 60% added to the main ration is more efficient -
profit of 11,18% over control level was received from
the average usage.
Sapropel usage efficiency at broiler-chicken feeding depends on feeding method (feed to appetite, OR
part replacement, feed mix applicator), on its dosage added into ration and on sapropel humidity.
Sapropel usage influences on feed mix eatability, digestibility and nutrition, growth rate, meat
productivity and poultry meat production economic indicators. Sapropel added in broiler diet decreases
feedstuff general cost for 7,24 - 17,74 % in experimental groups vs. control groups.
Also experiments were performed with line C “Brown Loman” cross laying hens. One control and two
experimental groups of laying hens were created by adding of 5,10, 15 % of sapropel supplement into
ration replacing compound feed. Sapropel added in laying hens’ ration increased eggs persistence for
3-6%, eggs quality (vitamins and carotinoids containment, shell-thickness), hatching eggs yields.
According to conducted researches sapropel added in poultry’s ration promotes chicken growth rate
and their vital capacity, eggs quality increasing and depending on using ration structure saves
compound feed-stuff and decreases product general costs. Sapropel usage in poultry nutrition
according ZOSP is attached.
Usage of sapropel vitamin feed supplements in cattle-breeding and pig-breeding agricultural sectors
during winter period allows considerable costs savings required for livestock nursing and preservation.
The following results can be achieved during sapropel usage in cattle and poultry’s ration:
- Costs spending on livestock growth were decreased in 8 times as a result of 10%-15% of compound
feed-stuff is replaced with sapropel.
- General physiological parameters as immunity, feeding-stuff eatability, etc. are improved as a result
of sapropel application.
- Unconditional refusal from necessity to add chalk, malmstone and other supplements in animals’
- Morbidity rate decreasing and livestock preservation improvement. It is a result of influence of
biologically active materials containing in sapropel. During scientific researches conduction none of
disease-producing factor related to human or animal’s life activity was found out.
- Feeding sapropel positively influences on all physiological processes in organism, in particular calf
and pigling’s rachitis prevention, increases animal’s reproductive functions.

Sapropel essence is a biologically active preparation for internal and external usage purposely to treat
chronic inflammable livestock diseases (arthronosos, gynecology, gastric ulcer, gastritis, duodenum
ulcer, etc.) and activate weakened organism immunity, especially for youngsters.
Sapropel essence is related to non-specific doping preparation of natural origin; it involves energetic
and bacteriostatic action. It was produced by means of harmless organic extraction in applied dosages
of extragent sapropel extracted from Omsk region lakes. It contains water and alcohol-soluble mineral
and organic materials.
Sapropel essence biological features
Sapropel essence is biologically active materials exert local and general influence on animals’
organism because of vitamins (Е, В12) containing in it, irreplaceable amino acids set, minerals, humic
acids and other biologically active materials originated in sapropel by anaerobic autolythis of organic
residues with minerals in sweet lakes of Northern part of Omsk region. Components complex
influence normalizes vitamin and mineral metabolism, stimulates blood circulatory system and
Sapropel essence promotes womb and endometrium mucous coat fast recovery after expulsion of fetus,
womb muscularity hypertension and yellow body absorption stimulation with further ovulation
activation. Sapropel essence takes off postpartum hypoglycemic state because of its nutritional
properties equal to 20% of dextrose solution. At endometrial injection of sapropel essence uterus
muscularity contractility is activated, which prevents afterbirth retention. And bacteriostatic features of
the preparation and stimulation of local protective reactions prevent puerperal endometritis
Currently there are no any preparations able to be compared with sapropel essence in its complexity of
physiological and pharmacological effect. Familiar preparations for endometrial injections offer, as a
rule, one or two pharmacological properties of short term action time (from couple of hours to one
day). For example, the best of such preparations as “Exuter” and "Geomicin" containing synthetic
cholinomimetic (proserin) and antibiotic (tetracycline). Appliance of them leads to overexertion of
uterus muscle “tired” after delivery and deprives its cavity of normal microflora, as a result it can
cause prolongation of uterus involution period completion and open period, also deprives uterus
internal environment of its natural pro-biologic protection. Exactly these negative factors lead to uterus
cavity attack by opportunistic microflora, subinvolution and, as a result, lead to prolongation of open
period and chronic endometritis. Symptomatic agenesis may be developed in such a manner and it
may disappear only after intensive therapy or after long full trance-humans grazing.
Contemporary prevention of puerperal endometritis and uterus subinvolution at cows allow decreasing
nonbearing period duration; providing optimal conditions for reproduction and preservation of
youngsters by calving rational distribution and increase youngsters’ yields and cows milking capacity.
Sapropel essence internal injection for newly born calfs, especially for weak and hypotrophic,
promotes immune system fast ripening and further increases body resistance to external environment
Relative mechanism of biological activity and sapropel essence appliance efficiency along with
other sources in cows’ postpartum complications prevention
1. Usage basis.
Sapropel essence promotes uterus and endometrium mucous coat fast recovery after expulsion of fetus.
It promotes uterus muscle hypersthenia and yellow body absorption stimulation with further ovulation
activation. Sapropel essence’s biological action is conditioned by biologically active materials
contained in it. Among them are anaerobic hydrolyze products of limnoplankton, ichthyol-like
materials, vitamins, microelements salts, ferments and hormones exhibiting their features as
nonspecific doping with bacteriostatic properties. Sapropel essence kills postpartum hypoglycemic
state because of its nutritional properties equal to 20% of dextrose solution.
1. Coal tar-like agents
In specific concentrations coil tars are able to invoke either catheresis to mucous coats or stimulate
their regeneration (recovery). At that coal tars always restrain disease-causing microorganisms’
development which is the reason of the majority of uterus diseases causing symptomatic agenesia.
2. Ichthyol-like agents
Ichthyol-like agents’ biologically active mechanism is similar to coal tar, but it has more “soft” and
more expressed stimulating effect to mucous coats and uterus muscle locally. As opposed to coal tar it
positively influence on animal’s entire organism. At that its local bacteriostatic activity remains.
3. Hormones-like agents and peptides
Under condition of plants and animals’ tissues anaerobic hydrolyze highly active biological agents are
accumulated. These agents are direct participants of metabolism, its mediators and background for
synthesis. These agents influence first of all on internal secretion system (hormones output
stimulation), immunity and hematogenesis. They show general regenerative stimulation for organism’s
tissues and organs.
Accumulated ferments are necessary for recovery and protection of uterus cover cells together with
their membranes optimal functioning, which is extremely important because of these cells deep
alteration during puerperal period.
Oxygen absence in sapropel prevents accumulation of oxides and other agents, which is a condition for
accumulation of natural tocopherol-like agents with expressed protective action for organism’s cells.
They take part in antimicrobic and antiperoxide protection.
6. Energetic agents
Extragent turns into dextrose in animals’ organism. Dextrose is enormously important and critical for
cows during puerperal period.
Sapropel essence dosage and application method
For cows at endometritis prevention 300-500 ml of the preparation is injected intrauterinal once after
6-12 hours since calving depending on expulsion of afterbirth. Before injection the preparation should
be heated to body temperature. As a rule there is no need to inject the preparation once more. Animals
tolerate the preparation easily; it does not cause any by-effects. Uterus hypersthenia does not require
appliance of preparations intensifying uterus involution after injection.
200-300 ml of heated to body temperature
preparation is injected at open womb neck with
medical purposes at acute and chronic
Saprepel essence is given to calfs with
preventative purpose; 40-80 ml once a day with
first or second portion of colostral milk and
repeat this on the second and third day. Then
after 3-4 days the treatment should be repeated
once a day during next three days.
With medical purpose at acute digestive disorders 50-100 ml of decreased or replaced with physical
solution or water preparation is given to colostric calfs 2-3 times in day till complete recovery.
This treatment method is based on appliance of mineral and organic origin muds and mud-like
materials (clay, etc.). Their therapeutic effect is stipulated by temperature and mechanic factors
influence, natural physical features and chemical composition.
The treatment is conducted mainly at resorts located nearby therapeutic muds minefields, although the
usage of imported muds outside resorts is widely spread. Following are the most frequently used in our
country: hydrosulphuric silt muds (bottom sediments of saline ponds), sapropels (bottom sediments of
sweet ponds), decomposed mineralized and sweetwater lignum fossile, clay silts, hydrothermal muds
(clay formation, originated in areas of dynamic volcanic activity), mount therapeutic muds (semiliquid
uliginous mass, originated as a result of rocks destruction and cropping up by Earth crust cracks at
gas/oil bearing regions).
Therapeutic muds are composed of mud solution, skeleton and so called colloid complex. Different
muds have different mineral and organic materials in mud water solution.
Mud treatment stimulates metabolism, promotes inflammatory tissues dispersion. Improving
lymphotrophy it causes scars softening, accelerates the bones accretion process after fracture,
decreases stiffness and increases joint range of motions, improves adrenal bodies activity. Therapeutic
mud has antimicrobic effect: enclosed to skin or mucous coat it absorbs bacterium on surface;
antibiotic-like agents occur in mud.
Mud baths and applications are used as procedures. The most widely spread is local (partial)
applications when mud of relatively stiff consistency is applied on any part of a body. Organism
response in this case is stipulated not only by mud temperature and physiological and chemical
features but also the area of mud application, place of application, for example on reflexogenic zones
(“collar” and “bikini” areas, some areas of upper and lower limbs).
Applications of bigger areas influence on organism more intensively.
In gynecologic practice mud applications on stomach and pelvis areas (so called “semi-bikini” or
“bikini”) are often combined with mud vulval pads which can be prescribed as a separate procedure.
At chronic inflammatory diseases of straight intestine (proctitis, periproctitis) and male organs
inflammation (prostatitis, epididymitis, funiculitis), and also for female organs diseases, sometimes for
intestinal tract diseases (e.g. irritable colon) mud pads into straight intestine can be prescribed.
There are methods of simultaneous influence on organism by therapeutic mud and current electricity.
Such methods include electrotype mud cure, electrophoresis of mud solution, mud cure combined with
inductothermy, etc. These procedures influence on organism in complicated way stipulated by
therapeutic mud and current electricity influence on skin receptors and therapeutic chemically active
elements contained in mud and entering into patient’s organism.
It is not recommended to combine mud cure and hydrotherapeutic, luminance, solar and other
procedures leading to overheat or cooling an organism. Mud therapy is included into complex therapy
for chronic diseases of locomotor system, at complications after limbs or spinal column injuries
especially at limited mobility cases; also consequences of peripherial and central neourvous system
diseases and injuries, male and female sexual organs diseases, some digestive tract diseases, perepheric
vessels diseases (phlebitis, thombophlebitis consequences, etc.); residual effects after burns and
freezing injuries, range of skin diseases, chronic bronchitis and pneumonia.
Counter-indications to mud therapy are acute and chronic inflammable processes on exacerbation
stage, cancerous and innocent neoformations, ovaries disfunction with increased formation of female
sex hormones (if necessary applications placed on small pelvis area or nearby), TB, some heart-
vascular system diseases (expressed atherosclerosis, hypertensive disease of II and III stage, aortic or
heart aneurysm, blood circulation disorder of ІІ-ІІІ stage, varicose veins), tendency to repeated
bleeding, kidneys’ diseases, thyrotoxicosis, infectious diseases including venereal at acute and
infetious stages, pronounced abrosia. Mud therapy is absolutely contraindicated during pregnancy of
more than 5 month term.
SAPROPEL THERAPEUTIC MUD
SAPROPEL – medical and cosmetic sapropel mud of Volovoe lake in Kiev region.
Infusive force of nature is contained in therapeutic muds. Yet ancient Egyptians used mud’s healing
properties for cure, cosmetic purposes and for organism youth renewal. Recently muds of the Dead
Sea, Spain and Hungary became very popular. However not all have an opportunity to recover their
health not only at international but also at local resorts.
Sapropel muds composition is complicated. Its basis is composed of calcium, magnesium, ferrum,
zinc, selenium and manganese salines; aluminium and silicium colloidal complexes, up to 50
microelements, amino acids, eicosanoic acids, phospholipids, groups of B, A, D, E vitamins, folic acid,
antioxidants, hormons-like agents, antibiotic-like agents, microorganisms physiological group,
carotenoids, bitumens, lignin, cellulose, phenolics and flavonoids. Sapropel acid-base balance (PH)
level is close to human ideal PH (5.5 . 6.05).
Sapropel mud is fine mass with particulates size up to 25 micron, which allows them to penetrate
deeply through skin sweat and oil glands. Optimal interchangeable process is taken place: an organism
ingests sapropel healing properties returning accumulated toxins and poisons often appearing as a
reason of various skin and allergic diseases. Besides chemical and thermal influence factor also there is
informational influence of sapropel on an organism by means of accumulated energy of primeval
nature. This energy has been accumulated in sapropel muds during millenniums, therefore their
healing action is appreciated even after first procedures.
Sapropel muds do not cause complications; their influence is very tender:
- they improve lymph and blood circulation, strengthen vascular paries, improve oxygen exchange;
- they stimulate functions of involuntary nervous system;
- they possess expressed antibacterial and antimicrobic action;
- they enrich organism with calcium, ferrum, magnesium, bromine, iodine, potassium, amino acids; -
possess atioxidant action (slow ageing process);
- restore immunity, strengthen protective features of skin integument;
- bind and excrete slags, toxines, heavy metals and radionuclides form organism;
- Sapropel colloid structures preserve water and prevent skin cell structure dry out (rejuvenating
- they influence on nervous fibres, promote impulses more efficient conduction, relax nervous system.
Sapropel is applied for treatment of:
- rheumatoid arthritis; distort osteoarthrosis; poliarthritis of different etiology
- osteochondrosis of spinal column’s different sections;
- pherepherial nervous system diseases (radiculitis, neuritis);
- injuries’ residual effects;
- chronic gynecologic diseases (adnexitis, tubo-ovaritis, infertility, peritoneal commissures,
- andrologic diseases (prostatitis)
- chronic bronchitis, chronic pneumonia, nasal catarrh, frontal sinusitis, genuantritis and tonzillitis;
stomach and duodenum ulcer disease;
- psoriasis, dermatitis, neurodermatitis, seborrhea and acne eruption;
Contraindication: oncological diseases, acute form of tuberculosis, thrombophlebitis, acute purulent
processes, with reserve at heart-vascular diseases. Sapropel can be combined with electrotherapy
methods in clinic conditions.
Domiciliary treatment should be conducted only after doctor consultation service!

For seborrhea and dandruff heated to 37°С sapropel is applied on scalp with soft brush between hair
locks. Head should be wrapped in towel for 20-25 minutes. Then sapropel should be washed off with
warm water and shampoo. Course consists of 15-20 procedures daily or every other day.
- Sapropel can be used in sauna or in steam bath for organism recovery.
2mm of mud should be applied on steamed face and body and stay in anteroom for 10-15 minutes.
Sapropel should be washed off without soap and then visit sweating-room. After sweating-room take
warm shower, then relaxation for 40-60 minutes. Course consists of 15-20 procedures daily or every
- Anticellulite effect.
In sauna (or after hot bath) 2mm of sapropel (37-39°С) should be applied on steam cleaned body
(problem areas) with soft brush. Wrap in with polyethylene foil and cover with warm blanket for 30-60
min (greenhouse effect is created!). After the procedure sapropel is washed off with warm water and
anticellulite cream or gel is applied on skin. During the procedure for water exchange regulation and
sweat secretion increase light tea or herbal tea is recommended (4-5 warm or hot tea cups). Course
consists of 15-20 procedures daily or every other day.
The course can be repeated in 3-4 month.
Cure applying vaginal and rectal tampons should be conducted only after doctor consultation service!
SAPROPEL BASED HYDROPHOBIC ORANIC AND MINERAL ABSORBENTS
Oil sorbents intended for removal of oil, lubes, fuel-oil and other water-insoluble organic pollutants as
from water surface as from any other solid surface within temperatures of wide range and for oil
product foil of any thickness. The product is used for oil and oil products localization and gathering
from water bodies’ surface, for soils polluted with crude oil detoxication locally without polluted layer
preliminary removal and soils polluted with crude oil detoxification and also for crude oil and lubes
wastes deactivation and pressurization.
Absorbents major application fields are:
- Clearing of water and earth surface from pollutants originated as a result of emergency crude oil and
oil products spills during crude oil output, transportation and processing, at oil sea ports and railways
terminals, oil depots, refineries and energy producing plants;
- Absorbents usage as crude oil pollution liquidation means at water treatment plants, truck fleets,
retail petroleum sites, boiler houses, etc.;
- Individual usage by people in living conditions in garages, workshops and other service rooms as one
of the means for pollutants liquidation and environment protection.
Oil absorbents advantages are:
- Ecological cleanness stipulated by natural organic feed-stock usage and reagentless technology of its
- High hydrophobic properties, providing absorbent long term flotation before and after crude
- Worked out absorbent utilization simplicity;
- Low temperatures tolerance (to - 20-30 0 С).
According to its main aspects SORBENTA is not inferior to foreign analogues presented on Russian
market, which can be seen at the table below.
“Price/oil capacity” range defining economic efficiency of absorbents usage for oil pollution
liquidation, these absorbents overtop other powder absorbents presented at Russian market.
Oil absorbents usage is similar to other powder absorbents usage. During oil pollution liquidation at
water surface first of all spilled crude oil or oil products is liquidated by slick bars, which is necessary
for any purification technology. Then the absorbent is applied on polluted surface by any mechanical
means or manually till oil film complete absorption and floating aggregate formation. After that slick
bars are tied up focusing absorbent with involved crude oil nearby a place convenient for gathering,
and worked out absorbent is liquidated by different means from the water surface.
Time reserve for oil spill liquidation without significant damage of environment depending on weather
conditions should not exceed 24-27 hours since the accident happened. Usage of powder absorbents as
SIBSORBENT preserving long term flotation allows considerably increase time reserves for
preparation events conduction and crude oil gathering.
Oil absorbents are completely compatible with all basic kinds of specialized equipment for application
and gathering of worked out powder absorbents, traditionally used for crude oil pollutions liquidation.
Worked out absorbents utilization:
- Burning purposely to obtain thermal energy
- Oil products preliminary extraction with further burning or absorbent soil application
Mainly all options of worked out absorbents utilization are environmental friendly and do not require
considerable economic expenditures.
Package: 5 kg packed in multilayer paper bags.
Crude oil capacity can be increased up to 10 g/g at customer’s desire.
SAPROPEL HUMIC EXTRACT DESCRIPTION
Sapropel extract compound includes organic and non-organic agents’ complex – lipides, saturated and
unsaturated acids, sterol, pigments, phospholipids, albuminous compounds, free amino acids and high
Sapropel contains all vital macro- and microelements as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, ferrum,
magnesium, silicium, sulphur, copper, zinc, manganese included into metalloenzymes and
metalloproteins providing motion of different physiologic processes in human organism, including
skin cells. Vitamins, hormonal agents and antibiotics are accumulated in sapropel due to plants and
animals’ (sapropel generators) decay products and micriflora. Special place in organic material
structure is obtained by humic compounds including humic acids.
Due to skin cells’ essential construction materials as methionine amino acids, lyzin, threonine and
cysteine containing in humic extract, due to vitamins as riboflavin, thiamin, ascorbic acid, carotin,
retinol, humic acids and fulvic acids it enforces reductive-oxidative fermentative systems action, due
to this fact it directly influences on oxygen exchange, increases cell’s energy potential regulating skin
cells’ feeding conditions. Humic acids’ low-polymeric fraction possessing great mobility and including
organic and mineral forms; they penetrate though epidermis and transports physiologically active
materials into derma and subcutaneous fat.
Sapropel humic extract positive effect is especially notable during negative external factors influence
causing skin stress: temperature difference, cold or unfavorable environmental situation. In such cases
himic materials present adaptive properties which related to skin cells’ fermentative systems activity
Sapropel extract presents adsorption
properties also, due to them it excretes and
incepts metabolism products and toxins
causing allergic and skin diseases from skin
surface, thereby cleaning skin and
normalizing its function.
Sapropel extract favorably influences on skin
when included into cosmetics’ compound if
herbal extracts were added there.
Researches conducted on basis of Military
Medicine Academy established that sapropel
extract has antimicribic action directed to
pathogenic microorganisms, at the same time it does not damage saprophyte microflora.
Anti-inflammatory effect is peculiar for it. This effect decreases hyperemia, water retention,
infiltration, macrophage and T, B lymphocytes faster origination. It stimulates cell’s regeneration,
protects skin from negative environmental factors influence. It may be applied in compounds of all
type skin care cosmetics.
Hopefully for the long-term mutualy beneficial cooperation.
