A Sticky Situation
Region:East Parry Sound
City:Emsdale, ON
School:Evergreen Heights Education Centre
Abstract:This experiment shows that natural materials can be used to clean up oil by absorbing it. Cattails, dog fur, phragmites, sawdust and clay are tested for their ability to absorb oil floating on top of water. Cattails and dog fur are the best sorbents - absorbing lots of oil and little water.
