Foundation Working to Deploy Absorptive Smart Sponge® in the Gulf Oil Spill  

The Smart Sponge® permanently locks up the oil and will not release it under any amount of pressure. Once permanently absorbed into Smart Sponge®, becoming a stable, buoyant solid, it can be removed from the water when convenient with traditional fish net hauling equipment, creating no further environmental damage. The recovered product can then be recycled into a fuel source with a BTU value of 18,000, equivalent to coal. The CTC Foundation is working with the US Coast Guard, BP, among others, to accelerate its use with this catastrophic event. For more information, please contact Howard McClintic at (202) 689-4586.
