Abstract

Oil spill pollution a severe environmental problem, which persists in marine environment or in inland water across the world, has grown to an alarming magnitude with increased levels of oil production and transport. Causes of it is either accidental or due to operation wherever oil is produced, transported, stored and used on sea or land. Hence, it is almost impossible for marine life to be free from the danger of an oil spill, though the discharge of oil is controlled by international convention. Prime concern for marine health life has created an instinct for undertaking this type of study by the authors. Objectives of the present work include testing of four different materials in separating oil from water having different oil concentrations along with its efficiency of removal. The work focuses on effect of time of contact and dosage of materials used for oil removal. Corchorus depressus locally available has proved to be more effective in addressing this problem and at the same time its byproduct does not give rise to unwanted hazard to the marine life.
