Plastic booms help clean up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico

the crude oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in the United States has attracted great attention from the international community. The phase 2 project of offshore crude oil floating in Pudong, Shanghai, has been completed and put into operation. The belt is 200 kilometers long and 100 kilometers wide, and it is still expanding further. The sewage discharge action may last for months. In order to help the United States eliminate the pollution caused by the crude oil spill, more than 10 countries and international organizations extended a helping hand to the United States. An oil company in Norway promised to provide degreasers, equipment and personnel. Iran will provide the United States with the technology to drill relief wells to prevent the continued leakage of crude oil. Berry, a plastic manufacturer, also delivered its PP oil containment booms and ropes to the Gulf of Mexico, which greatly improved the control accuracy and quality, as well as medium-sized bulk containers, to help clean up the oil pollution

permanent plugging work will start this week.

British Petroleum is scheduled to try the "static plugging method" to plug the leaking oil well in the Gulf of Mexico on August 3. The first step of permanently sealing the leaking oil well, "fixed plugging" is about to begin

"fixed plugging" refers to injecting a large amount of mud into the fractured oil well from above, which may be completed this week. Next is the "bottom plugging" work. The relief well will be used to inject mud and cement from the bottom. This work may take several days or weeks, depending on whether the "fixed plugging" works. The whole permanent sealing of the oil well is expected to be completed in mid August

general Allen of the U.S. Coast Guard, who is in charge of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, said that they would put forward a plan to clean up the oil spill that may continue to wash the beaches and marshes next week. The coast guard predicts that four to six weeks after the well is permanently sealed, there will be oil spills washing into the beach

there are many difficulties in cleaning up the oil spill

oil continues to flow from the sea, natural oil is easy to melt with seawater, and the viscous mixture produced is difficult to burn, or even difficult to clean up; There are a lot of marshes on the coastline that are difficult to clean up

strong winds and waves have prompted oil to flow directly to some of the most sensitive coastal areas: the marshes of Louisiana and surrounding states. There are three types of beaches: sandy beach, rock beach and swamp beach. For example, the oil slick on the sandy beach in Florida is the easiest to remove

the most difficult thing to remove is the oil slick on the marsh, which is the first place where the oil leaked from the Deepwater Horizon flows. The marsh is very fragile, and attempts to clean up the oil slick will cause serious damage to it. Once the oil slick seeps in, the grass on the marsh must be cut down. However, it can also penetrate into the soil, and it is difficult to remove oil in this case

Plastic booms play an important role

Berry Plastics, located in Evansville, Indiana, is deploying its PP booms, ropes and medium-sized bulk containers to the Gulf of Mexico region to clean up and contain the oil spilled in the Gulf of Mexico. According to the sales of x-sorbs brand, the company's oil boom and rope have better oil adsorption capacity than ordinary adsorbent products. Jordanu, retail marketing manager of Berry Plastics, said that although the company now has the ability and equipment to produce these oil cleaning plastic products, this is still a new and special project for the company. He said that at present, all products are in the process of continuous production and transportation

berry's x-sorbs brand oil boom

each oil suction rope is 50 feet long, designed to absorb 15-20 times its own weight of crude oil. When the heating part is found to be damaged or out of control, it should be replaced and repaired in time. 20 8-ounce, 22 inch long PP oil suction blocks are evenly distributed on the rope. The external structure of x-sorbs brand oil boom adopts PP material, and the interior is filled with PP fiber filament, with a diameter of 8 inches and a length of 10 feet. Berry said that the oil containment boom is a very ideal choice. It can enter the inaccessible water inlet, and can also be connected together for large-area coverage. In addition, the lined medium-sized container is also woven from PP material, which can be used as a container for oil pollution collection. Large containers can also be provided, mainly for small containers and other graphene, which is a material stronger than carbon fiber and contaminated by crude oil
