Oleophilic Clay

A modified clay specially designed to trap hydrocarbons like Non-Aqueous Phase Liquid (NAPL) through adhesion while allowing water to pass through. This material is effective in many multi-layer engineered capping applications to prevent transport of NAPLs into the water column. Commonly found bentonite or hectorite clay is altered to produce the oleophilic clay.
