His aim was to develop a system that could capture the oil right at its source, before it disperses on the surface of the ocean.
Oil Spills: A Deep Water Solution
Oil Spills: A Deep Water Solution
Oil is less dense than water and therefore the oil escaping the sea bed travels up to the water surface. Dr. Fivos Andritsos and his colleagues from the Joint Research Center in Ispra, Italy have now developed a reservoir which can be applied on top of the leakage.
