The MYCELX wet weather emergency response kit helps catch harmful contaminant spills before they have a chance to damage marine environments. The kit can be used for on-water spills or those that occur during wet weather and can remove oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, transmission fluids, sheen and chlorinated solvents from streams, rivers and stormwater runoff. Products infused with MYCELX passed the California Department of Fish and Game's rigid aquatic toxicity tests, which determined MYCELX could safely be used in marine environments when used for spill response.
MYCELX can be infused into numerous substrates and is able to remove pollutants from water to below detectable limits in a single pass. Once pollutants come in contact with MYCELX, they bond instantly to the material and become extremely hydrophobic (repellent to water) and viscoelastic (thickened), which removes them entirely from the water stream. This kit includes MYCELX-infused booms, immobilant pads, Viscochips, and PowerSolve all-purpose cleaner. The products, none of which absorb water, are strong, lightweight and easy to maneuver and contain.
