De-OIL-It, a Hydrocarbon “Degrader”
De-Oil-It is an exceptional hydrocarbon cleaner and is regarded as a DEGRADER. A degrader is far superior than a degreaser or ordinary detergent. Degreasers, soaps, detergents, solvents, etc. clean by attaching to the hydrocarbon (fuel, oil, etc.) essentially just moving the contamination from one place to another requiring further hazmat handling, costs and time; a degrader on the other hand disassembles and then transforms hydrocarbons into a detoxified, simpler chemical structure, thereby being much more environmentally responsible and safe. Best of all De-Oil-It can be used “in-situ”, meaning the spill treatment can be done on site without necessarily the need to move contaminated soils somewhere else for treatment. On water, if approved by FOSC (“Federal On-Scene Coordinator”), De-Oil-It can be applied surrounding the spill (to contain and prevent further spreading of an oil slick), plus broadcasted (usually sprayed or pumped) on top of the soil slick to enhance remediation processes by breaking down (“degrading”) the hydrocarbon pollution.
Note: “detoxified” claim based on hydrocarbon measuring equipment producing Parts per Million, PPM, to quantify contamination levels. De-Oil-It has been used to reduce hydrocarbon contamination (“pollution”) to below regulated levels to nearly negligent levels. Detoxification (“reducing hydrocarbon PPM levels”) is based on data from 350+ remediation projects, many supervised by the EPA. These projects were conducted mainly in Texas, on land, and averaged 4-6 weeks versus conventional remediation timelines of 3-4 months.
De-Oil-It breaks down complex hydrocarbon chemical structures up to C40.
Water “activates” De-Oil-It as the ingredients utilizes H2O to disassemble the hydrocarbon chain (oil, fuel, hydraulic, etc.).
Degreasers soaps detergents solvents, etc. have a propensity to form weak bonds when attaching to oil and fuel (hydrocarbons); the De-Oil-It technology forms strong bonds such that the disassembled smaller molecular structures will not reattach and form another hydrocarbon structure!
De-Oil-It is non-hazardous, removes flash point (no fire, no more odors), while also disassembling large complex hydrocarbon chains into elementary soluble carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.
De-Oil-It not a dispersant, rather De-Oil-It is a miscellaneous oil spill control agent (the category we have submitted to the EPA’s NCP – “National Contingency Plan” list.) De-Oil-it enhances oil spill cleanup; either by being part of a larger process, possibly in coordination with an accelerant such as enzymes or extra bacteria introduced in addition to existing indigenous bacteria.
While we regard De-Oil-It as a tool that enhances other hydrocarbon cleaning processes and solutions; De-Oil-It has a long history of being used on it’s own merit as the only cleaning solution for residential, industrial, and large scale remediation projects.
Fuels of all kind such as gasoline, diesel, kerosene, aviation, etc. are no match for De-Oil-It, which instantly decomposes and eradicates fuels. De-Oil-It can act as a fire extinguisher or as a fire prevention around fuel spills as De-Oil-It eliminates flash point (spill will not catch fire), and removes odor (fuel vapor is highly flammatory / explosive, and toxic to breathe in)
What’s the big buzz about De-Oil-It?
De-Oil-It detoxifies hydrocarbon contamination below regulated levels or down to negligent pollution detected.
De-Oil-It keeps working even after being washed away keeping run-off water safe, and preserving the ecosystem affected by the run-off.
Is your cleaning solution this environmentally responsible ??
Why should hydrocarbon cleaning products / solutions / methods embrace environmental protection and preservation? Recall the Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the chosen solution, a dispersant, sank oil and the by-product of naturally occurring bacteria was more toxic than the spill itself. Reference 1, Reference 2 and Reference 3.

How much De-Oil-It do you need ?
Our ready to use formula is prepared to just APPLY, WAIT, RINSE… Ready to Use containers have an unlimited shelf life as long as you keep the product capped.
We suggest waiting at least 15 minutes to allow the De-Oil-It solution to degrade the hydrocarbon contamination (the longer you wait the more complex chemical structures are dissembled into smaller, simpler, and far less toxic formats)
We offer Ready-to-Use in 22oz, 1 gal, 2.5 gal, 5 gal, 55 gal, and 275 gal sizes (pictured below is 1 gallon, 5 gallon, and 22 oz spray bottle).
Industrial Strength Concentrate is perfect forthe hard to clean or larger spills of oil, fuel, etc. In many cases ISC will be more economic than RTU because you can dilute to many ratios specific to your task at hand.
Use our dilution guide to add water in a ratio recommended for your task (H2O activates De-Oil-It); there is an unlimited shelf life of the concentrate formula, and the activated dilution is also unlimited as long as the container is capped.
Use our CONTACT US form to describe your project and we can help explain the dilution guide if you have questions or we can provide you a HOW TO guide on remediation or many other kinds of hydrocarbon cleaning needs.
We offer industrial concentrate blend in 5 gallon, 55 gallon and 275 gallon sizes..

DE-OIL-IT WILL DEGRADE THE FOLLOWING
- Fuels : gasoline, diesel, kerosene (heating and aviation quality), etc.
- Hydraulic, transmission (ATF), brake, power steering fluids

- TCE – Tricloroethylene
- PCB – Polychlorinated Bi-Phenyls
- PAH – Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
- Benzene, Xylene, Toluene, Glycols
Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a volatile, colorless liquid organic chemical. TCE does not occur naturally and is created by chemical synthesis. It is used primarily to make refrigerants and other hydrofluorocarbons and as a degreasing solvent for metal equipment. TCE is carcinogenic
TCE is used in
- Spot removal in dry cleaning industry
- Pepper Spray
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are a group of more than 100 chemicals that are also called polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons. PAHs are released from burning coal, oil, gasoline, trash, tobacco, and wood.
PAHs are found in industries that produce or use coal tar, coke, or bitumen (asphalt). They are emitted by coal and gasification plants, smokehouses, municipal incinerators, and some aluminum production facilities.
Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) are a group of manmade chemicals. They are oily liquids or solids, clear to yellow in color, with no smell or taste. PCBs are very stable mixtures that are resistant to extreme temperature and pressure. PCBs were used widely in electrical equipment like capacitors and transformers.
Products that may contain PCBs include:
- Transformers and capacitors
- Electrical equipment including voltage regulators, switches, re-closers, bushings, and electromagnets
- Oil used in motors and hydraulic systems

Disclaimer: Chemical countermeasures (“cleaning”) oil and fuel spills on navigable waters must be authorized by a Federal On-Scene Coordinator (FOSC). If you witness, caused, or are effected by an oil / fuel spill please contact appropriate personnel as the public at large is not authorized to initiate or take on (“countermeasures”) a reportable spill according to the EPA.
For your reference CFR 40 (“Code of Federal Regulations) to determine responsibilities concerning oil and hazardous substance pollution.
Report oil and fuel spills to the marina office and the U.S. Coast Guard National Response Center 800.424.8802 and Office of Emergency Services in your jurisdiction immediately. The NRC is the federal government’s centralized reporting center, which is staffed 24 hours per day by U.S. Coast Guard personnel.
Report unusually large spills that enter or have potential to enter the storm drain system or a water body to your local authorities including the Regional Water Board and the Department of Fish and Game (800-852-7550 OES).
We asked many times can De-Oil-It be used in navigable waters for oil spill cleanup if we are not yet on the NCP list; the short answer is it depends and the people responsible for a possible use of a product not on the NCP list resides with FOSC and EPA. For CFR 40 regulations on use of non-NCP list products see this document.
We are pursuing inclusion into the NCP list and will report updates when available.
If / When De-Oil-It is placed on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s NCP Product Schedule, i.e. “NCP list”. This listing does NOT mean that EPA approves, recommends, licenses, certifies, or authorizes the use of De-Oil-It on an oil discharge. This listing means only that data have been submitted to EPA as required by subpart J of the National Contingency Plan, §300.915.
