2014 Research Edition–A Call for a Twenty-First-Century Solution in Oil Spill Response Now Available!
The Science & Technology Advisory Board of the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization (LAEO) herein presents a preview of its research paper entitled A Call for a Twenty-First-Century Solution in Oil Spill Response. The goal of this effort is to promote effective ecosystem restoration practices and to present cutting edge technology that is proven, safe, non-toxic, cost-effective, and easily adopted in contingency plans and response toolkits. We were especially interested in finding technology that would be capable of remedying major spills in navigable waters.
The material contained in this analysis and guide is a constructive offering for every oil company, oil spill response organization and environmental protection stakeholder in the world. The objective is to educate and help improve planning and management of potentially contaminated ecosystems.
This work brings a new analysis and assessment of oil-spill response and offers effective alternative technologies for replacing dispersant chemical application to an open water oil spill or deep-water drilling crisis like the 2010 BP blowout and oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It contains guidelines for the selection process for cleanup agents, along with an evaluation process (toxicity, effectiveness, speed, cost) that can be used to grade potential effectiveness of methods and agents.
We have written a short summary giving you a preview of the document and recommend that you read this as your first step.PREVIEW
