The Manual was developed to provide information for the selection and use of sorbents for cleanup or control of liquid hazardous substances. Literature reviews, sorbent manufacturer data, and experiences of On-Scene Coordinators were reviewed in conjunction with laboratory studies. The laboratory studies determined the compatibility and sorption capacity of selected representative hazardous liquid-sorbent pairs. The combined experimental and literature data were used to prepare the Manual. On-Scene Coordinators and their technical support personnel are the primary target audience for the Manual.
