Foam glass and glassy materials (polyurethanes) are studied for use as oil sorbents. The specific character of the kinetic curves of oil absorption determined by the glassy state of the surface irrespective of its nature (inorganic or organic) is determined. Promising practical applications of the results obtained are found.
