Manvers Engineering Ltd is a family run company that was established in the 1990s (creating separation equipment for the tunnelling industries), but it wasn’t until 2008 that development commenced of what is now the market-leading product, Plant Nappy. Derived following feedback from exacerbated environmental managers about the lack of adequate oil/spill containment on sites, the thinking around creating a viable long-term solution ignited the creativity of the managing director, Colin Ibbotson. Not content with solely achieving this solution, he was eager to take it one step further by developing a product that would not only retain the contaminant but also allow rain water to be filtered out contaminante- free, allowing it to safely pass back into the environment.

This means that getting it under any type of machinery is easy.

It can either be placed under by hand (if you know where the machine may leak oil from) or the machine/equipment could be driven or rolled onto the Plant Nappy whereby the entire machine would then be guarded against spillage. This is great for large equipment on construction sites, such as generators. It can be used outdoors in all weather conditions and on any terrain, meaning
