DUALZORB, a product manufactured by LBI Renewable of Buffalo was recently listed as one of 21 products to meet Environmental Protection Agency standards for use in oil spill response.
According to a media release, LBI Renewable satisfied requirements of the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan, or NCP.
What theat means is their product can remain in the environment after clean up of an oil spill on Federal and State lands.
Shelly St. Pierre, owner and chief Financial officer for LBI, explains further.
LBI Renewable was founded in 2007 as Little Bits, Inc., a cat litter company that made a natural pellet from beetle-killed trees. They currently employ seven people in their Buffalo facility.
St. Pierre explains how the company shifted from cat litter to an environmentally-friendly industrial absorbent.
St. Pierre said the company still offers cat litter, but their main focus is on the industrial absorbents line.
