For the Waters of the World–Earth Day 2015
In observance of Earth Day 2015 and the 5-year mark of the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill disaster, LAEO is re-releasing its oil spill response research paper to make this vital information more broadly available.
We all have a stake in strengthening the protections and preservation of Earth’s waters and interdependent life eco systems.
A Call for a Twenty-First-Century Solution in Oil Spill Response
In the spirit of Cooperative Ecology and finding a better way forward, the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization Science and Technology Committee is seeking collaborative partnerships for advancing research in this field. We truly hope that Oil Spill Response Professionals will accept our help and avail themselves of this information as critical to their decision-making process when selecting methods to be used for removing oil and other chemical spills from our oceans and waters.
The Science & Technology Advisory Board of the Lawrence Anthony Earth Organization (LAEO) herein presents a preview of its research paper entitled
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
