Oil Spill Shore-line Clean Up

Graham Marshall - Tuesday, July 17, 2012

The majority of marine oil spills occur close to the coast and the techniques used for shoreline clean-up are relatively straightforward. 

Clean up operations on shorelines can be considered under three stages.  These are:

1. Emergency phase involving the collection of floating oil close to shore;

2. Project phase involving the removal of stranded oil and oiled shoreline materials; and

3. Polishing phase involving the final clean up of light contamination and removal of oil stains.

Enclosed here is an excellent technical information paper from the International Tanker Owners Federation dealing with techniques for clean-up of oil from shorelines across the three-phases of action.
