Sustainable functionalized magnetic particles for efficient treatment of marine oil pollution

Oily wastewater production and discharge from different sources such as industries and daily human activities are the main sources of marine oil pollution. More importantly, accidental oil spills occurred in oil extraction/production, refining, and transportation stages can cause detrimental impacts on the aquatic ecosystems and marine environments. In this Lab2Market project, we apply a special coating solution provide a proper dispersibility aqueous/continuous in various environments to optimize the adsorption performance by considering all affective physiochemical variables to be improved for on-site purposes.
