A Sticky Situation 2.0

Abstract:My science project is about whether cleaning oil spills with natural materials can be as effective as using man-made polypropylene. Last year, I tested 5 different natural sorbents to see which one would clean up oil best. I had two winners, cattails and dog fur. This year I'm testing these two sorbents against polypropylene, the man-made sorbent that is used now.
