Gulf Oil Spill Disaster




An oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico leaked an estimated 3 million barrels of oil. Environmental contractors were frantically evaluating options to remediating the oil spill.

Hydrosil supplied HS-200 to the environmental remediation contractor working on the cleanup of the oil spill. The environmental remediation contractor initially performed bench-scale testing, and from there designed a treatment system using the HS-200. The treatment system effectively remediated millions of gallons of contaminated water.
