General Info

The primary tools used to respond to oil spill cleanups, are mechanical containment, recovery, and cleanup equipment. Such equipment includes a variety of booms, barriers and skimmers, as well as natural and synthetic sorbent materials. A key to effectively combating spilled oil is careful selection and the proper use of equipment and materials most suited to the type of oil and the conditions at the spill site. Most spill cleanup equipment and materials are greatly affected by such factors as conditions at sea, water currents and wind. Damage to spill-contaminated shore lines and dangers to wildlife and other threatened areas can be deduced by timely and proper use of containment and recovery equipment.
