To see a video for separation of crude oil from sea water, both from the Mexico Gulf, see this link: watch?v=kfRKjiOXVWE
Very low viscosity oil my friend. Try that with gulf crude
semi(/selectively)-permeable membranes are not new news..sorry..do you think they are not using pretty crafty stuff on that spill? that mess involves a lot more water and a lot more oil than a method like this could handle. one word. efficiency.
“developed a chemistry”, what does that even mean? people develop chemical reactions, or chemical processes, but people do not develop chemistry. chemistry is the science of matter and describes reactions and properties.
Spread the Truth and listen
pass it along
AWESOME! The Next BIllionaire!
The coating on the fabric is most likely a silica-based combined superhydrophilic–superoleophobic system. For more discussion of this, see Ceramics Tech Today.
cool. all we need is one big ass cup to do the same thing in the gulf of mexico. but wait I am not too sure yet until the scientist drinks the blue water first!
to jaggedsoul: as far as i know, the material used for skimming repels both water and oil. but the textile used here repels only oil but is permeable to water. in other words, this textile may significantly increase the efficiency of skimming. but i believe methods much better than skimming may be developed based on this material.
So that’s basically how ’skimming’ works, right? Aren’t they attempting that now? Of course they’re not getting very far with this weather we’ve been having down here, but that’s the plan anyways.
you should contact the White House. Act now to reduce the impact of the environmental catastrophe at Mexico Gulf
i have seen filters that oil can pass but water can not. they don’t work well because oil is lighter and will flow on top of water. this filter is a lot better. water at the bottom will pass the filter while leaving oil on the top. i can see many uses of this filter. nice job!
This is amazing. Cheap, easy, and fast. The government should use it right away to clean the mess in the Gulf.
