In modern sea carriage industry, the collision accidents of oilers sometimes lead to oil spills, which bring about great catastrophes for ocean environment. Currently, marine pollution managements are under low efficiency. ‘Oil Absorption Seed’ is specially designed for ocean oil spills, which can rapidly stop oil diffusion. The inspiration of ‘Oil Absorption Seed’ comes from seeds. When thrown into ocean, its blades quickly unfold, with new mixed materials under those blades to soak up oil efficiently. When reaching the full capacity of adsorption, blades will fold and resume the original shape, which can be reclaimed conveniently.
