OIL SPILLS ON WATER

·         Bear River Zeolite (BRZ™) is a naturally occurring very high-quality zeolite that is being mined in
southern Idaho.

·         The proposed product would be in the size of 20-25 microns. Alternatively or in addition a slightly
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 oil.

·         BRZ™ is sold as an absorbent for oil for floor applications, spills, and many other applications.

OIL SHEEN APPLICATION

·         BRZ™ can be applied as a dust on the surface of water that has an oil- sheen or thicker amounts of
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.

APPLICATION METHODS

·        BRZ™ could be applied from aircraft or from vessels.

·        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.
