Title: Cytosol Method for Oil Spill Cleanup
The increasing number of oil transports caused by the steadily rising demand endangers humans, animals and plants. In the case of damage, the oil not only destroys or damages people’s livelihood but also the sensitive living space of rare animal and plants for a long time. The Cytosol project seeks to help in minimizing the consequences of unavoidable catastrophes by eliminating oil contaminations in an environmentally friendly and biological way. Flora and fauna recover within a short time, as do affected humans. Furthermore the Cytosol method minimizes the ecological damage and the costs that arise from the treatment of the produced destruction mass through recycling the oil as an energy source. The water used for the purification is returned to the water cycle without further treatment.
