"Ahoy Enterprises (Pty) Ltd is a Waste Management Company based in Mokopane (Limpopo). Our largest clients are in the mining industry. Ahoy is an Environmentally Conscious organisation and we thus strive to offer an environmentally friendly options to our clients. We focus on Zero Waste to Landfill solutions providing our clients options that promote environmental sustainability. That been said, we launched a Hydrocarbon Contaminated Soil Treatment Facility at Anglo American Mogalakwena in 2017. The idea was to treat the contaminated soils with Bio-Enzymes so that the soils can be remediated and returned to its origins, instead of been landfilled. We however found that even though the Bio-Enzyme processes was successful, it was time consuming, labour intensive and not cost effective. In search for alternative treatment methods we were introduced to a product called OilCap. It was promoted as a Hydrocarbon Converter, that would provide the same or better results than that of Bio-Enzymes in a fraction of the times and reduce labour. With some scepticism, we applied the OilCap to our hydrocarbon contaminated soils and after 14 days compared the results to an untreated sample, a Bio-Enzyme treated sample and the sample treated with OilCap. To our joy and amazement the OilCap treated sample passed all regulatory norms and standards and was given the green light and classed as fully remediated. We have been using OilCap at our Treatment Facility since 2018. This facility processes between 250 and 400 tons of Hydrocarbon Contaminated Soils every month. With the correct application of OilCap in relation to the level on contamination, we are proud to say that we have a 98% successful treatment rate and our samples are tested through an independent laboratory. OilCap has change the way we and our clients view the treatment of Hydrocarbon contamination and Spills and has become the go to product for us."

"I would like to thank Pineland Environmental on the Oil cap product – we here in Transnet would like to show our appreciation that this product is effective on our spillage that we attend and would like to recommend this product."



"Management at Engen - Oranje Convenience Centre faced an ever growing vehicle oil drip problem both on the concrete forecourt apron and on the interlocking brick parking area.

Not only was this unsightly but oil drops were found to be walked into the Woolworths and Qshop areas.
Since the introduction of Oil Cap some three years ago and following a Rules of Application I can report back that this has radically improved the cleanliness of these areas."

"Just wanted to let you know that the Oilcap product is phenomenal - we’ve used it at a 1:10 dilution in our raw materials storage so far, and the floors have literally never been cleaner."

"Ten years ago we started using OilCap and we were amazed at how fast total remediation could be attained. In cases where the spill is superficial, 3-4 days was enough. Cleaning of concrete surfaces could be done in one day. Our biggest challenge was convincing our clients that OilCap is not soap but a chemical that dries out the hydrocarbon and converts it to carbon and silicate In the 10 years that we have used OilCap we have had no comebacks on any project. It is the only product we have come across that will actually do more than the supplier dreams it can do. In not one case did we ever find any hydrocarbon (tph) in tests done on treated sites. In one case we treated the oil sludge from a oil separation pit. On completion the client planted pumpkins all over the heap of remediated soil, and believe you me they had a bumper crop.
OilCap is without doubt the best product to use to remediate hydrocarbon contamination in soil."
