Macromin Kentish Minerals


Key Facts

  • ALGANITE is produced from an oil shale mineral after the oil has been extracted to produce power and energy, leaving a porous absorbent lattice. 
  • ALGANITE is arguably the only mineral granule which can claim to have a negative carbon footprint, in that it yields more energy in its production than it consumes.
  • ALGANITE is a light-weight granular product which remains hard when wetted, is resistant to bacterial growth.  
  • It is effective and clean as an oil spillage absorbent and works well as a basic low cost cat litter.
