Quick Licks for Oil Slicks
City:Mississauga, ON
School:Mentor College
Abstract:Oil spills in water can cause major environmental disasters. Our experiment tested the oil absorption of five sorbents - sponges, hair, shop towels, cotton and feathers - to remove oil from water effectively. Simulated crude oil was used. The results showed hair as the best sorbent. Hair is an effective clumper of oil and may be used in the future to clean-up oil spills.
