Filtrexx Launches BioLoxx Natural Spill Absorbent

Sept. 24, 2020
Derived from flax, Filtrexx's BioLoxx is a natural, lightweight spill absorbent that offers an efficient way to clean up and dispose of spills.

Filtrexx International has announced a new product called BioLoxx, a natural, lightweight spill absorbent of oils and other fluids. Manufactured through a patent-pending process and derived from flax, BioLoxx offers a more efficient way to clean up and dispose of spills economically and safely. BioLoxx has been third-party tested to absorb oil, fuels, paint, antifreeze, and more. According to ASTM testing, BioLoxx is up to 400% more absorbent than clay-based sorbents by weight. This equates to BioLoxx being 75% more absorbent by volume and costing 75% less per spill than clay. In addition, BioLoxx minimizes dust and resists ignition prior to use, making it safer. 

“BioLoxx fills a need in the absorbent marketplace, specifically the need for a natural product that has higher performance vs today’s traditional absorbents. BioLoxx is a great new product for Filtrexx’s current customers and also allows Filtrexx to reach new markets and customers. BioLoxx emphasizes Filtrexx’s core beliefs to be grounded in science and be sustainability-conscious,” says Kip Vangsgard, senior product manager at Filtrexx.

Key features and benefits of BioLoxx include: 

  • Made from flax, an all-natural, sustainable and renewable material 
  • Lightweight and easy to handle, making it safer for workers 
  • Up to 75% more absorbent than clay-based products by volume and costs up to 75% less 
  • Absorb oil, fuels, paint, antifreeze, and more

BioLoxx can also be paired with EnviroSoxx Pollutant Filters for added pollutant protection. A passive filtration system ready to install on any site, EnviroSoxx targets the most common pollutants in stormwater runoff. EnviroSoxx is available in two different filter blends to target common pollutants. Simply block the flow with a length of EnviroSoxx, then cover and absorb the spill with BioLoxx.

BioLoxx will be available starting October 5, 2020, through distribution partners. For more information on BioLoxx or to locate a distributor, visit
