Incorporated in Canada in 1983, Hi-Point Industries produces environmentally safe, all natural oil absorbents for the containment of hydrocarbon spills. Through research and the construction of a custom-built factory, Oclansorb® was born and the process patented in 1984.
Oclansorb® is an organic, nontoxic, non-abrasive, lightweight industrial oil absorbent. Oclansorb® is made from naturally occurring blonde sphagnum peat moss harvested from the bogs of Newfoundland - it is the original peat based absorbent.
Oclansorb® has proven to be effective in large spills worldwide. Oclansorb® has helped mitigate environmental damage at major spills such as the Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska, the Iron Baron spill in Australia, and at a catascropic spill in Uruguay to mention a few.
EMCO is the sole representtive of Hi-Point Industries for its premier Oclansorb® and other allied products in Nigeria.
