Oil spills collection from water
In the video you can see how to collect used engine oil from the surface of the water.
This powder, in its particular application, acts as an absorbent that absorbs any oil product containing oils and paraffin’s.
The amount of absorbent used to collect the oil depends on the density of the oil product. To collect one liter of oil from the surface of the water will require 100 g of expanded graphite powder (volume, 4 l).
The powder quickly absorbs engine oil and is easy to collect from the surface of the water. The collected material can be squeezed out or pressed into briquettes, burned or used as fuel.
The powder can be reused.
