My name is Vicki Kleu. I am a grade 11 student from Victoria, BC. I've lived in Canada for six years. My South African accent, though still present, is now mingled with a Canadian drawl. This is my fifth year participating in science fair and my third time attending the CWSF. I now spend more waking hours in a lab during science fair season than in my own house. When not in the lab, I can be found actively engaged in leadership projects or in the dance studio. Though my career choices are pointing me toward oncology or cardiology, I am also passionate about the health of our oceans. This year I successfully produced a reuseable and fully biodegradable pad capable of adsorbing fifty times its weight in spilled outboard motor oil. Currently I am patenting my work and hoping to make the pads readily available to marinas throughout the world.

Fully Biodegradable Adsorbent Pads to Clean Small Scale Marine Oil Spills
Région:Vancouver Island
Ville:Victoria, BC
École:Lambrick Park Secondary
Sommaire:A reusable and fully biodegradable pad was built to adsorb spilled outboard motor oil in our harbors. The pad, currently being patented, adsorbs nearly fifty times its weight in motor oil and 90 to 95% of this oil can be easily wrung out. An additional 3 to 5% of the oil could be washed out of the pad using a canola oil rinse.
