Efficient methods of cleanup
and breaking down 
crude oil in seawater

Every year a variety of accidents to oil tanker ships and other oil related facilities in the sea contaminates seawater with billions of gallons of crude oil. Each crude oil spill accident destroys marine life and makes the shore line unusable for humans and other animals. There are known mechanical methods for controlling the oil spill and the recovery of oil, however a large amount of oil will remain and must be treated to reduce its harm.
 Project description:
In this project you research mechanical methods of cleanup and chemical methods of treating what is left from an oil spill after an initial mechanical cleanup. The purpose of such treatment is to reduce or stop the harmful effects of oil or destroy the oil by converting it to other safe forms.
