Scientists have developed a simple, cheap and environment-friendly system that can effectively remove crude oil from sea that can pollute and even destroy marine ecosystems. Marine oil spills are disasters that cannot be completely avoided as long as we drill for oil or transport it across the ocean, researchers said. An effective measure would be to remove oil slicks by absorption into a separable solid phase.

Now, scientists from the Indian Institute of Science, Education and Research (IISER) in Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala have found that the congealed oil created a rigid gel within impregnated cellulose and scooping the particles out is possible.
