Adler & Allan – on the shortlist

Adler and Allan’s Sockit system has been shortlisted for the Energy Institute’s Innovation category awards.

Used by the Environment Agency, National Grid, BP and Scottish Power, Sockit is a portable sock like device that harnesses multi-stage filtration, removing hydrocarbons and sediment to almost non-detectable levels as water is being pumped away – on average 99% removal. The system is reusable and recyclable and can be used in a wide range of de-watering applications such as oil tank bunds, trenches and boreholes without slowing the pumping process.

Group sales and marketing manager, Alan Scrafton said: “We are extremely pleased to be shortlisted and of course, hope we win! Sockit is an excellent product that has made a significant impact to the effectiveness of contaminated water clean-up, while reducing cost and logistical issues.”

EI award winners will be announced on the 14th November, at a ceremony in London.

The Sockit system is among the products available on Adler & Allan’s spill care website –
