June 2, 2010 (KABC) -- A mine in Los Angeles County could prove instrumental in BP's clean-up efforts in the Gulf of Mexico. The mine
contains Zeolite, a volcanic rock that could be a green and effective
way to soak up the oil. Mark Troinoff of Zeo-Tech in Acton poured oil on a
chair to demonstrate the effectiveness of Zeolite in cleaning it up.
Troinoff's family has mined Zeolite in the canyons of Southe
California for years. He believes that Zeolite can do a better and safer
job of sponging up the oil leaking in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast
"It can be used as a disbursement agent. It can be sprayed in a
pattern to help disperse the oil and absorb it, and then it can be vacuumed up and taken ashore," said Troinoff. Zeolite is primarily composed
of calcium, aluminum and iron.
NEW USES FOR AbzorbAll AS OF MARCH 2015
All of us at Zeo-Tech want to thank ABC Leo Stallworth and Marie Producer Camera Operator Editor river for an excellent job.

to client, "any chance of getting a printout of the test results? ANSWER
"I'm still waiting for the actual sample reports" My question
Did you use the MM AbzorbAll zeolite by itself or was it mixed with other medium for filtration? I used the zeolite by itself. I put it in small bags made of geotextile fabric and placed the bags in the baskets inside the storm-drain holes. ANSWER
"I used 15lb to treat about 20,000 gal of water" Please go to SWPPPNow.com to see samples of our products. "The company is in Tacoma, WA. It was the first time in 10 years that they had results below the EPA benchmarks on Zinc and Copper"
In about 2 weeks, I'm going to use the MM AbzorbAll zeolite at a facility in OR with high levels of iron and phosphorus. I should know the results in about a month of so. I will keep you informed.
Cement Driveway Oil Clean up with no Water or Chemicals
Troinoff said it is all natural and environmentally friendly. "Zeolite is a n
aturally occurring product, and it has no harmful effects on the environment. It's actually a volcanic rock," it's over a million years old and was formed when the world was under water.
That means it was created before any pollution described Troinoff.
BP has used barrels of toxic chemicals to disperse the oil. There are reports that Louisiana fisherman helping with the clean-up effort are suffering health defects from those chemicals.
"Zeolites crystalline honeycomb structure is what gives it the ability to absorb and neutralize hydrocarbons and arsenic that is contained in natural occurring oil," said Troinoff.
Eyewitness News placed calls to the Environmental Protection Agency but received no answer. But Eyewitness News did speak with the Natural Resources Defense Council who said they've never heard of Zeolite. They promised to take a look at Zeolite as a potential product to clean up the oil in a better, safer manner.
Troinoff said that a representative from Zeo-Tech is Bruce from o3h2o4u is talking to BP about his product and ours . Bruce's plan is to use Zeolite, Hydrasep, and Ozon . Hydrosep is working with Bruce to provide the cylindrical oil/water separators. Zeo-Tech will provide the filtration media Zeolite. Bruce will provide the ozone equipment and management of the oil/water recovery system.
AbzorbAll - This
all-natural Zeolite absorbent product is a boon to the commercial and private
business alike. It replaces other absorbents, such as, cellulose,
corncob, peat moss or polypropylene. No need to determine the kinds of
liquids you are using AbzorbAll combines many benefits of these other
types of absorbents in one, easy-to-use absorbent product. Our
AbzorbAll Zeolite (Laumontite) is a natural producer of ion exchange. AbzorbAll is used
as an absorbent especially for neutralizing toxins and odors. AbzorbAll is of a structure
that it will not change shape or value when hydrated, but continues to
work. AbzorbAll does not release toxins or odors, but neutralizes them.
AbzorbAll - is a
natural absorbent; it is non-carcinogen, environmentally friendly where
many other absorbents are not.
It is a porous, highly absorbent mineral with remarkable honeycomb structure and chemical properties that make it valuable in a growing number of applications: storm drain run off filtration, surface clean up (parking lots) and pollution control.
AbzorbAll - absorbs most spills better then other absorbents. Can be very useful in high traffic areas because it’s never slippery, due to its hardness. 3-4 times extra longevity, capacity and saturation for oil, chemical and acid absorption, including hydrocarbons.
