Castrol Heavy Duty Lubricants North America is offering the Castrol Emergency Spill Kit and oil recovery contact list to help keep workplaces and employees safe. This kit provides the materials to take immediate action in case of a minor spill (15 gallons or less).

This kit has simple instructions and color-coded contents, and it all comes in an easy-to-carry bag. The kit contains:
Drum plug compound, which in many cases makes it possible to seal the source of the leak
Booms that help to contain the spill and protect drains, gutters, and waterways
Absorbent pads to soak up the fluid
Disposable bags and ties
Flame-retardant sawdust to soak up residues
Special disposal bags with 15-gallon capacity to safely contain waste material
