America’s Most Trusted Absorbent!

ZORBENT®

America’s Most Trusted Absorbent!

Zorbent® was originally developed to clean up the Rocky Flats Nuclear plant in Colorado, helping to remove 1.3 million cubic meters of waste. The formulation had to be 100% environmentally safe, non-toxic, non-hazardous, and non-irritating, and that same formulation safely cleans up household messes today.

Zorbent® was developed in the 1990s by Richard J. “Doc” Kraemer, Ph.D. Dr. Kraemer was formerly  Dean of the University of Colorado’s School of Pharmacology, having served on the faculty at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine, following  a Post Doctoral Fellow at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Through his research, laboratory work and encouragement by the EPA, Dr. Kraemer developed the proprietary formulation for Zorbent® to assist in the cleanup of the Rocky Flats Nuclear Arsenal, a plant located between Denver and Boulder, Colorado. 

At the direction of the EPA, Dr. Kraemer worked with EPA-approved independent laboratories to rigorously test Zorbent® using the EPA’s TCLP (Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure) test for leachability. The results were outstanding! Zorbent®, an all-natural product, was found to retain 99.9% of seven volatile compounds (VOCs) tested and 99.8% of the remaining liquids in a simulated, 20-year decomposition landfill process. The rest is history, as Rocky Flats was returned to public use in 2018 when it was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a model for reuse of contaminated land. Also winning the National Federal Facility Excellence in Site Reuse award and becoming the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge.
