Emergencies associated with a product such as oil require prompt intervention to prevent environmental disasters. A fairly complex process is the elimination of oil spills at sea, which is due to the specific nature of the work being carried out, especially if it is a question of eliminating accidents that occurred in difficult Arctic conditions.
Currently, there are various means of oil spill response, which should be used depending on a particular situation.
In the harsh climatic regions of the Arctic, the elimination of emergency oil spills is not an easy task, since the oil slick spreads very quickly and sinks under the ice. In order to prevent this and prevent oil products from submerging under ice, it is very important to apply the sorbent to the oil-contaminated surface as quickly as possible with all available means.
Oil treated with the sorbent VD-1 can be on the water surface for an unlimited time, therefore, the elimination of emergency oil spills becomes completely controlled by a person, which makes it possible to prepare and then collect the sorbed mass.
Further liquidation of accidental oil spills at sea: if it is not possible to locate and collect floating oil, the burning method is used. Using a sorbent VD-1, you can even burn out a thin layer of oil. Sea swell does not hinder, but only promotes the interaction of sorbent and oil, accelerates the sorption process.
