1. A flowing powdered composition comprising:

  • a. an oil and gas drilling fluid cuttings containing organic contaminants;

    b. a powdered free-flowing solidification agent adapteded for highly charged absorption and adapted to enable the organic contaminates of drilling fluid cuttings to adhere to the molecular surface of the powdered free-flowing solidification agent;

    c. a cell transport agent for combining with the powered free-flowing solidification agent and the organic contaminate of the oil and gas drilling fluid cuttings to form a free flowing absorptive metal citrate;

    d. a cellulosic additive consisting of an oleophilic fibrous agent forming a mixture; and

    wherein said mixture comprises enough powdered free flowing solidification agent to enable the powdered free flowing solidification agent to electrolytically attract substantially all of the organic contaminates in the oil and gas drilling fluid cuttings to the surface of the powdered free flowing solidification agent when hydrated.
