This is an older article from 2012. MIT discusses using nanotechnology and magnets to separate oil from the water for cleaning on oil spills.

Oil spills seem to happen annually.



Always remember "Planned obsolescence."

I always wondered why oil pipelines are not built with an oil catch basin built under them.Should be law. Like double wall hulls for oil tankers.

If a pipeline ruptures and spills a couple hundred thousand litres, you're going to need a heck of a catch basin.
