Using Fleets Of Microsubmarines To Clean Up Oil Spills
Scientists from the University of California-San Diego, along with some colleagues based in Spain, have developed a new method for removing oil from water. They used self-propelled microsubmarines to capture oil droplets and transport them through the water in a system that could help clear up oil spills.The study, which appeared in the journal ACS Nano, was led by Joseph Wang, and is the first of its kind to try using the tiny machines, normally used in biology as receptors or drug delivery systems, as environmental helpers.The cone-shaped machines… Read more...
