OIL SPILLS ON WATER
Bear River Zeolite (BRZ™) is a naturally
occurring very high-quality zeolite that is
being mined in
The proposed product would be in the size of
20-25 microns. Alternatively or in addition
coarser BRZ™ product could be used.
The products have a huge surface area --
24.9 square meters per gram.
BRZ™ will hold up to 30% of its weight as
BRZ™ is sold as an absorbent for oil for
floor applications, spills, and many other
OIL SHEEN APPLICATION
BRZ™ can be applied as a dust on the surface
of water that has an oil- sheen or thicker
oil by various methods.
The dust floats by virtue of the air in the
numerous channel-ways in the mineral.
The floating mineral adsorbs the oil and the
specific gravity of the mineral increases.
At a saturated level,
the mineral coagulates into a clump and
sinks. The oil sheen is removed.
BRZ™ will also sinks heavier concentrations
of oil from the surface of the water.
BRZ™ could be applied from aircraft or from
BRZ™ can be dispersed by disc distributors,
pneumatic-venturi guns, or many other
methods as a dust.
The advantage of the BRZ™ is that it would
be dispersed from aircraft in the form of a
dust cloud that would cover huge swaths
depending on the altitude of the aircraft.
For instance a C-130 aircraft might cover a
swath of several miles.
