It All Flows Downstream
Elastec is the largest manufacturer of oil spill cleanup and surface water pollution equipment in North America. With headquarters in Carmi, Illinois, U.S.A. and three manufacturing facilities in southern Illinois and Cocoa, Florida, we are a global leader in the distribution of oil skimmers, oil boom, fire boom, dispersant application systems, work boats, vacuum systems, portable incinerators, turbidity curtains, and custom containment boom for floating trash, debris and aquatic weed control. For fifty years, our equipment has been operating in 155 countries. We share a passion for keeping our waterways, rivers and oceans clean with a network of partners around the globe.
From the Deepwater Horizon incident in the Gulf of Mexico to the first flush from stormwater runoff in Mumbai - surface water pollution - it all flows downstream into our waterways and oceans. Our mission is to develop solutions to clean up contaminants – oil spills, floating trash, debris, silt, sediment, drugs, aquatic weeds and F.O.G. (fats, oils and grease) – to keep our world clean.
It all began with a bucket.
Elastec offers workshops to share the knowledge of environmental and spill response industry experts in a comfortable classroom setting at our Illinois and Cocoa facilities. Responders learn to operate Elastec equipment on land and in water to augment response tactics. Engineers and consultants experience the “whys and hows” of product performance criteria and modeling principles.
