Traffic accidents related with the appearance of dangerous materials, i.e. escaping driving fuel and car liquids, often happen on the Slovak roads. Most often, these are crude oil products as diesel, gas and motor oil. Oil products undesirable in contaminations contaminate impacted environment, especially soil, water and air. Units of Fire Department of the SR assisting by the traffic accident related with escaping of dangerous liquids make their identification, localization and consistent liquidation by means of powder sorbents. Experimental modeling of motor oil escaping into the soil with consistent interaction with powder absorbing materials have a goal to achieve the minimization of negative impacts on environment.
