Top oil Spill Solutions Providers Cleaning Up the Spillage Mess

Mar 23, 2018

Oil is an essential commodity powering the transportation and energy needs of the world. However, it not present across all parts of the world. Only, few countries have oil reserves, and they transport the surplus oil to needed countries mostly through water routes. Additionally, oil is not only found in the land but also in ocean floors. Hence, oil exploration activities take place even in oceans. All such transportation and extraction activities pose a particular risk of the oil spill which not only harms the marine life but also pollutes the environments and affects the humans. Recently, there was a massive oil spill after an Iranian tanker sunk in the East China Sea after a fiery collision. An almost invisible type of petroleum has affected important fishing grounds from China to Japan and beyond. It is not the first oil spill instance with many notable incidents such as Exxon Valdez and Deepwater Horizon, and may indeed not be the last.

  • Oil dispersants using Corexit 9500 works almost the same way as dishwashing liquid. They break oil into tiny droplets which will then be consumed by naturally occurring bacteria
  • Water-oil separation technique skims the surface of the water and manually collects floating oil
  • An extreme attempt to remove the oil is to burn large areas of oil on the sea surface
  • Hyper absorbent peat moss soaks up nasty oil slicks as it can be scattered on the spill to absorb the oil, and then scooped right out of the water along with the oil

Although it may seem simple, controlling oil spills and cleaning the oceans is a daunting task. But few companies in the world perform these tasks efficiently. So who are the top companies providing oil spill solutions?
