Hydrocarbon Bioremediation – Cleaning fuels & motor oil spills on water - Case Study
Background Nanobite Products proved how effective they are in hydrocarbon bioremediation on water with the almost total remediationin one week offuel spillsfrom abandoned cars. Read on… On March 30 2006, in Black Sod Bay in County Mayo, between 45 and 50 cars were transported from a neighbouring island destined for scrap. They were deposited at low tide on the shoreline to await transportation. As soon as the tide came in, it became apparent that oil, diesel, petrol had begun to seep from the broken...
Nanobite remediates boyne river oil spill - Case study
On the 6 September 2007, an oil spill from a fuel dump leaks into the beautiful Boyne River, County Louth, Ireland. Local wild fowl and their nesting areas are endangered, as is the local water supply. The coastguards deploy conventional booms to contain the spill but decide against the use of conventional chemical detergents because of the obvious damage to flora and fauna. Drogheda Borough Council require a treatment that is 100% environmentally safe. They chooseNanobite Liquid, an inert, non-toxic and...
ALBANISA Oil Spill Equipment Setup - Case Study
As a part of the Bolivarian Alliance for the People of Our America (acronym in Spanish: ALBA), Nicaragua has received funds to build a new oil hub in the Caribbean. The hub will be available for oil companies in order to store their products before reaching its final destination. By doing that the profit will be increased as the costs for transportion is reduced. The updated environmental regulations and the plan to have industrial complexes forces many oil spill combating companies to have an oil spill contingenc...
USGS, NASA Study Finds Widespread Coastal Land Losses from Gulf Oil Spill
A new USGS-NASAstudy found widespread shoreline loss alongheavily oiledareas of Louisiana`s coast after the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill and compared the erosion from the spill with coastal changes Hurricane Isaac caused in 2012. A pattern of dramatic, widespread shoreline loss along Louisiana’s coast caused by the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill has been revealed by a new study by the U.S. Geological Survey and National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Researchers used NASA’s...
Solution blooming for fracking spills?
Blooming salts may clean up after brine spills North Dakota`s oil boom can have a salty side-effect. Wastewater from oil drilling and hydraulic fracturing – or fracking – is often laden with salts and can spill, contaminating soils. In 2014, for example, 42 such brine spills per week, on average, were recorded in North Dakota. Brine spills introduce so much salt into the soil that local vegetation cannot survive. The salts stay around for decades, even centuries. That prevents growth of plants,...
