CleanWay | Adsorption Booms
CleanWay® Adsorption Booms are an economical pollution and erosion control solution for parking lots and any impervious surfaces where oil and heavy metals such as zinc, copper and lead are prevalent. Adsorption Booms are highly efficient and easy to install, replace and move from one location to another, providing a barrier that reduces pollutants from moving downstream and ultimately entering a swale, detention / retention pond or constructed wetland.

For industrial facilities, commercial properties and construction projects where runoff is a concern, weighted adsorption booms stay in place while they cost effectively reduce pollutant loads. CleanWay offers a variety of tested, highly specialized media to capture the pollutants of concern. We work with you to identify the right media blend to help meet your site-specific water quality objectives.

How they work

Adsorption Booms are available in standard 6, 8 and 10 foot lengths and are flexible so they conform to uneven surfaces. When you identify an area to be treated, booms can be deployed to immediately capture and retain contaminants while allowing water to pass through. Booms provide a simple way to capture pollutants where no other means of filtration is practical.

Adsorption Booms dissipate the energy by spreading and slowing the flow, thereby reducing erosion. The weighted segment keeps the boom in contact with the ground to reduce bypass. They can also be staked to the ground for added stability.
