Corn cobs in a pile

Corn cobs can be used for spill cleanup of oil, grease, water, coolants, and most non-aggressive fluids. Cobs are more effective then clay and weigh less too. Its greater fluid holding capacity means you will use less of our product for clean-up. Cob products have a high Btu value and low ash content making them ideal for incinerator disposal/use.
