Summary
Technology has existed for 40 years to clean up oil spills via a skimming system. However, the technology would not work in rough water with high waves. David Pryor of Extreme Spill Technology has improved this technology so that it will work in rough waves, and he hopes that BP will use this technology to cope with the deep water oil spill.
It’s a mechanical skimmer – a flat-bottomed barge with a hole in the bottom. The barge runs over the oil. Vacuum pumps create a column of water that’s above the ocean, this works like a straw and sucks up the oil and pumps it into storage tanks.
