From the beginning, George Alther (Biomin's founder) envisioned a company that would provide more than just a "product for a price" to customers.
Based on his vision, we have dedicated years to building a company that is viewed not only as a maker of an excellent product but also as a provider of valuable technical information. We manufacture a product line that has proven itself in both laboratory and field testing. One of Biomin's more well-known products, OilSorb™, has an impressive list of benefits and surpasses the operational and cost efficiency of other traditionally-used filtration media. Because we have dedicated so much time and effort in developing OilSorb™, we know more about organically-modified clay filtration/adsorption media than our competition. This translates into Biomin being a superior technical resource for customers. Mr. Alther's CV Reducing environmental clean-up costs is our business and yours! Additional information on OilSorb™ and its performance, as well as specifications on the other Biomin products, can be found at our "Products" page.
