Spill Tackle is a patented blend of agricultural/forestry commodities and oils that was founded in Mississippi and is made from 100% sustainable materials. Tackle Technologies, LLC. was launched in 2012 and was a development company for a wide range of products from injection molding to new absorption technology. After discovering the capabilities, characteristics, and applications for this absorbent product, Tackle decided to pursue this opportunity on a truly superior product. Tackle continued to maximize the development and performance of the absorbent while an automated production facility was developed to focus on volume and availability of the product now known as Spill Tackle. Spill Tackle was launched in 2015 with a goal to eliminate inefficient clay products and the expensive processes required to handle and dispose of them.
Spill Tackle is a superior performing absorbent product and is made from recycled/repurposed materials that would otherwise wind up in landfills. By taking these wastes and re purposing them, Spill Tackle offers an extremely sustainable, high performing product, that is cost effective for all levels of application. Spill Tackle is USDA bio-preferred, up to 6x more absorbent than clay, bio degrades simple hydrocarbon fluids like motor oil, and USEPA leachate tested. Spill Tackle has clients in a wide range of industries across the nation that include but are not limited to: Oil and Gas Exploration, Transportation/Logistics, Environmental Response, Haz-Waste Hauling, Food Processing Companies, Manufacturing, Fabrication, Rendering Plants, Solidification/Landfills, Scrapyards and Power Companies, Utility Companies, Cities and States, School Districts and many more.
