Case study – Re-purposing waste to soak up oil spills and mercury pollution

A reusable and buoyant polymer created from industrial waste products could be used as a sponge to soak up oil spills, reducing marine devastation while safely recovering the crude oil.

The polymer is created by reacting sulphur and used cooking oil – both waste products that are easily available, affordable, and abundant.
