USING
OIL BLOOMS

The use of oil booms is a straightforward and popular method of controlling oil spills.

USING SKIMMERS

Once the oil has been confined by using oil booms, skimmers or oil scoops can be deployed.

USING
 SORBNETS

Sorbents are materials that soak up liquids by either absorption or adsorption.

BURNING
IN-SITU

In this method, the oil floating on the surface is ignited to burn it off.

USING DISPERSANTS

Dispersal agents, such as Corexit 9500, are sprayed upon the spill, which aid the natural breakdown of oil components.

HOT WATER & HIGH PRESSURE WASHING


This is used in situations where the oil is inaccessible to mechanical removal methods such as booms and skimmers.

USING MANUAL LABOUR

This method requires hand-held tools and manual labour to clean up the contaminants.

BIOREMEDIATION

It refers to the use of specific microorganisms to remove any toxic or harmful substances.

CHEMICAL STABILSATION

It is used to prevent the oil from spreading and contaminating the adjacent areas. 

NATURAL
RECOVERY

The simplest method of dealing with oil spill cleanup operation is to use the vagaries of nature like the sun, the wind, etc.
