MSDS – Greasweep
2065 HWY 99, Cottage Grove
Wyoming Leech Test
Energy Laboratory measurement of analytes considered field parameters that require analysis within 15 minutes of sampling such as pH, Dissolved Oxygen and Residual Chlorine, are qualified as being analyzed outside of recommended holding time.
Solid/soil samples are reported on a wet weight basis (as received) unless specifically indicated. If moisture corrected, data units are typically noted as –dry. For agricultural and mining soil parameters/characteristics, all samples are dried and ground prior to sample analysis.
Department of Health Approval Letter – August/2014
- This beneficial use approval is solely for the specific material and source identified.
- Transportation and handling of this material and any wastes treated with this material must be in accordance with the North Dakota Solid Waste Management Rules and Law and with the North Dakota Industrial Commission’s (NDIC) Oil and Gas Division.
- Any person transporting this material or any waste stabilized with this material must have a Solid Waste Transporter Permit.
- Contractors, end users, transporters, and any persons handling or using this material must be trained in its proper management and spill reporting procedures.
- Any changes in the nature of the material must be reported to the Department. Waste must be stabilized with sufficient material to prevent the release of any free liquids when transported to a solid waste facility.
Instructions Solidifying Solution
Instruction on how to use GREASWEEP as solidifying solution Greasweep is a unique absorbent. The equation for Greasweep capability to absorb and capsulate is 1:1 by volume. 1 cubic feet of Greasweep will absorb and capsulate 7.5 gallons of liquid. That’s approximately 22 pounds. Safety equipment= goggles and face mask.
When Greasweep is mixed properly with the waste it will turn into a material similar to granule sand; this means it is ready for transport. What makes Greasweep so unique and efficient is its ability to absorb and capsulate as quickly as it is distributed and mixed. Even though invert and brine cuttings have the same moisture, Brine cuttings need a little bit more product to stabilize.
Greasweep must be mixed at correct ratio in order for it to be transported safely. Make sure there are no holes in truck bed or tailgate. We will be taking samples once a year to make sure Greasweep is adequate for the material that is being absorbed.
Please refer to table: 1 yard of Greasweep that’s 27 cubic feet will absorb and capsulate 202.2 gallons of liquid. Also if you absorb 1 yard of liquid with 1 yard of Greasweep that’s 54 cubic feet you will have 1.1 yards of waste when stabilization is done that’s 29.7 cubic feet of waste to be removed.

Rice Hull reduced to its simplest form
Greasweep is rice hull reduced to the simplest ash (little or no carbon). These rice hulls are mostly silica and cellulose. The burning process consumes the cellulose and leaves the skeleton of silica. This skeleton resembles a bundle of drinking straws which are used to suck up any liquids, especially oils. Greasweep is inert, contains no contaminants, no corrosives or chemicals.
Cleaning up Greasweep is as easy as pushing a broom. And because Greasweep is capable of absorbing up to three times its weight in oil, it can be reused over and over until saturated. The food industry is so confident this product is effective and safe, it can be found in many food processing plants where contamination is a concern with other products. A Queensland, Australia racetrack has found Greasweep to be so effective in oil absorption and for providing traction it uses this product on the track during races.
Independent Engineering Comparison Test
In the course of testing, a variety of absorbents were testing to determine their performance in immobilizing drained fluids. The visibility of the puncture with Non-Destructive Examination techniques were also reviewed.
5. Fire Fighting Measures
This product is non-combustible and not an explosion hazard. Consult with the MSDS of the absorbed substance in the event of emergency.
6. Accidental Release Measures
Procedures for Cleanup: Control source of spillage if possible to do so safely. Sweep thoroughly to collect spilled material. Return uncontaminated spilled material to the process if possible. Place contaminated material in appropriate container for disposal, based on the MSDS of contaminate material. In all events, comply with all local, state and federal regulations.
