Industrial Oil-Absorbent Mats

Absorb spills with recyclable oil-absorbent mats.

Multiple industries, from construction to manufacturing, deal with many different liquids throughout the day. Water, oils, and coolants are constantly used around machinery and employees. Closed Loop Recycling offers the ideal absorbent solution should these liquids ever spill: reusable absorbent mats.

Oil-Absorbent Mats

Workplace absorbent mats are essential to keep your workplace free from accidents or frequent messes. CLR knows how much a clean work environment affects your employees and their quality of work. Placing an absorbent mat in critical locations keeps spaces clean without negatively impacting anyone’s schedule.

We offer cleaning for a variety of mats, from reusable absorbent socks to hydromats that can handle oil spills while repelling water. Each mat is recyclable, and we have options that take care of oils, coolants, and water spills with ease. Each situation and liquid require different responses. From oil-based liquids to hydraulic fluid, we offer many different mats for the job.

Industries That Benefit From Oil Spill Absorbents

CLR’s services are expansive and customizable. Unique offerings like our Minimal Liquid Discharge recycling method ensure your oil-absorbent pads, bilge booms, and absorbent pillows remain useful beyond their first application. We recycle for many businesses, from automotive to aerospace.

Here are some of the industries we proudly serve with high-absorbency spill control mats:


Critical manufacturing processes produce liquid waste, requiring protective materials and cleaning supplies to maintain a safe environment. CLR’s oil mats, pad rolls, and other spill response equipment contain messes, and our recycling services ensure your equipment remains in top condition.


Hazardous spills are inevitable when dealing with automotive repair. Liquids need to be managed to keep the garage floor clear of hazards. CLR’s industrial absorbent mats help you clean up oil waste quickly and completely. Our spill kits can handle heavy-duty spillage, and we recycle your supplies once they’re used, so you don’t have to waste time and money buying new equipment.

Oil and Gas

Oil fields and gas rigs deal with many hazardous materials that can negatively impact productivity and workspace safety if not addressed quickly. CLR’s oil spill absorbent mats keep your facility clean and safe. We maximize your productivity with recycling services that can save you up to 80% on material spending in the first month alone.

Absorbent Mat Disposal Compliance

To successfully and responsibly dispose of waste materials like used absorbent mats and other spill response equipment, you need to comply with regulations determined by various state agencies and stakeholders. The requirements for each interested party differ and are subject to change, so your research has to be thorough and frequent.

Here’s who regulates used oil-absorbent mat disposal:

  • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
  • The Occupational Health and Safety Association (OSHA)
  • Insurance Companies
  • The Department of Transportation
  • State Environmental Protection Agencies

The disposal of absorbent mats depends on whether a free-standing liquid is involved. Any spill response materials, from absorbent pillows to bilge booms, that contain used oil need to be addressed according to the waste management standards outlined by the agencies and organizations above.

Containers need to be protected against deterioration, leaks, and rust. Issues like cracking and pooling need to be handled before you can discard oil absorbent mats safely. If your labeling, record keeping, and container use are in order and you have no free-standing liquid, the EPA has no other requirements. However, some states might have further regulations you need to follow.

The Benefits of Laundering Oil-Absorbent Mats

With CLR’s laundering services, you don’t need to worry about compliance. Our recycling solutions meet every requirement for oil absorbent mat disposal. According to the EPA’s requirements for absorbent mat disposal, as long as facilities have drained their materials with no sign of free-standing liquid and intend to reuse the equipment, they don’t need to make a waste determination. This process requires further testing and research before you send the material to a landfill.

Our specialists handle all transportation, digital documentation, and any necessary on-site or virtual training. We simplify asset costs with flat-rate bundle pricing, reducing material spending on absorbent mats, jackets, gloves, and more. We also offer a custom cost analysis to help your organization find the most effective and budget-friendly solution for your recycling needs.

CLR’s facility service strategies keep your workforce focused and productive. We reduce the time it takes for workers to clean, improve workplace safety, and increase productivity across the company with innovative services like our Minimal Liquid Discharge (MLD) process.

Reusable Oil Spill Absorbent Mats

Your absorbent mats will eventually run out of absorbency. Closed Loop Recycling ensures you can reuse absorbent mats instead of throwing them out and buying new ones.

Spill Control Mats, Pads, and More

CLR offers a variety of mat recycling options to save your business money and help the environment. Instead of using up your various mats and throwing them away, we collect them in bulk and launder them for reusability.

We thoroughly clean your reusable oil absorbent mat, separating the liquids from the mat and securing it for further use. Once your absorbents are clean, we send them back to your facility, giving you a more cost-effective option than disposal and ordering a new batch of mats. CLR helps you save money and the environment at the same time with our innovative recycling process.

Minimal Liquid Discharge for Absorbent Mats

Closed Loop Recycling specializes in industrial textiles and helping companies achieve green initiatives through our services. Our revolutionary Minimal Liquid Discharge process is one of the main factors behind these green initiatives. We take your used mats, rags, and towels, launder them, and extract the liquids they’ve absorbed.

Not only do we thoroughly clean these products, but the extracted liquid is then recycled. This process saves you money on buying new disposable materials. Save time, money, and the environment with CLR.
