Abstract Current paper reports the research conducted at Riga Technical University and Rezekne Higher Education Institution on the development of sorbent material - closed hollow microspheres with ferromagnetic properties and high specific surface. Existing sorbents for oil products collection are reviewed and compared . The manufacturing process of the proposed composite sorbent is described and its structure and morphology are discussed. It was found that it allows an efficient and safe way for surface water cleaning contaminated byspilled oil products. In particular, it shows a storing effect on a thin oil film (1-2 mm). Adsorption capacity towards motor oil is investigated and compared with other magnetic sorbents on metal powders base. Newly proposed sorbent demonstrates a significantlyhigher adsorption capacity comparing to iron powders. Sorbent saturated by spilled oil can be removed by means of magnetic (or electromagnetic) captures.
