Remediation of Oil Products Spillage During Transportation

This proposal aims to mitigate the oil spill from the road and water surface using commercial and sustainable dispersants. Frequent spillage of crude oils and refined products during transportation pollutes the transportation lines, sewages, and surface waters, which can have serious environmental consequences. The prevalent technique for treating oil spills is to apply chemical dispersants to the floating crude oil on the surface of the water. Dispersants break up the oil slicks into smaller droplets, enhancing their natural dispersion and degradation in the water, which in turn reduces the toxicity of the oil products.
