Just before Christmas of 2006, a home owner in New York found a heating oil spill on his hand and since it was not a very major oil spill, he decided to do his own Do-It-Yourself spill cleanup. The spill had reached a very large area in the basement and it was producing copious fumes and he had to use blowers and fans to get rid of the strong odor. Next thing he did was to surf the web and search for a working solution and he contacted us telling us that he would like to pick up 1 gallon of VaporRemed and that he is driving down and requested us to meet him at the nearest point near the freeway. He sent us photographs to give us an idea of the situation. He used VaporRemed and not only the odor was gone almost immediately he did not have to worry about any residual later on and has no complaint even to date. If the action is immediate the costs are lower as can be seen in the case of this resourceful home owner.
New DESMI Smart Boom - Superior Monitoring Boom Technology
The system combines proven DESMI oil spill containment boom with the Boom Guard Monitoring Buoy, an oil pollution monitoring device used to monitor for the presence of oil pollution within the boom containment area. If oil pollution is detected, the buoy transmits an alert via Iridium satellite in real time. The buoy also monitors location and heading and should the SMART BOOM drift, the buoy reports its current location and heading, transmits an alert, and continues to transmit hourly allowing users to locate...

Do you know the two most important words required to understand oil spill booming?
Much has been written (incorrectly) about how to deploy boom in order to protect, deflect or contain oil. We have long promoted using math and science when deploying spill countermeasures not only because it works, but because it’s faster, safer, more effective and it saves time, money and impact. What we’ll focus on in this article is the where of boom deployment. When it comes to understanding where to correctly deploy boom during an oil spill incident, it’s important to understand that...
