Oil-absorption blankets for oil spills

Our oil-absorption blankets are made from peat moss, a natural, non-toxic, organic fibre. The water-resistant, oil-absorbent blankets absorb oil 15-20 times their dry weight. The easy-to-use blankets float on water, are efficient on asphalt and are stored in rolls or sheets.

Oil-absorption blankets are available in two sizes:

  • 40cm x 40cm (26 pieces/box)
  • 78cm x 116cm (60 pieces/EUR pallet box)

Absorption kits for vehicles and machines

The vehicle kit comprises oil absorption blankets (16l absorption capability), plastic bags and gloves. The kit is designed according to the latest oil-absorption qualifications and is easy to use in vehicles and machines.

Recyclable natural fibres for ecological processes

Our current product range is based on long-term development. Peat is a durable natural fibre, which has a unique capacity to either absorb or insulate, depending on the treatment.

Test results prove that Konto products are highly competitive, compared with similar products already on the market. Konto products are superior in terms of their ecological characteristics, as surface peat is safe, regenerative and recyclable.

Our patented manufacturing process uses fully ecological methods to create innovative products. All waste can be recycled back into the manufacturing process. No water is required in the manufacturing process and we can even warm factory facilities using process heat during winter.

Peat moss blanket for cleaning contaminated areas

Konto offers an ecological option for cleaning contaminated areas. The Konto oil-absorption peat moss blanket is a new product that uses peat moss for its non-toxic and organic properties.
