Containment booms and pom-poms for marine applications

MBT containment booms and oil only pom-poms offer a one-two punch for tackling marine oil spills. Containment booms stop oil spills from spreading by keeping the oil contained to a small area. Our oil-only pom-poms selectively absorb oil (hydrocarbon based fluids) while repelling water.
