Ocean Oil Recycler / cleaning machine

Ocean Oil Recycler

Ocean oil recycler is a cleaning device to reduce the environmental and economic lost when ocean oil spills happen. The idea is to filter and collect oil, and directly use as fuel of the device, so the device can operate for a long period without recharging. The excess oil can also be stored in a tank and it can be separated from the device and collect the oil inside. Ocean oil recycler aims to provide a one-stop solution for oil spills.
