Oil Spills in Ports - Equally Damaging!


									<div class="KonaBody">
        <p>Large oil tankers load and discharge oil at ports, and there's
every possibility for oil to spill out.<a rel="nofollow"
pollution-prevention-at-home"> Oil spill pollution</a> in ports should be
taken care of immediately as it can cause direct damage to the marine
ecosystem. It causes toxic accumulation, and even death of the marine
plants and animals within a very short period of time.<br><br> Oil spill
cleanup methods in ports are same as that of other spill cleaning
strategies; the only difference is the requirement of instantaneous
response. Whenever there is oil spill in a port, the first response is to
find out its source and secure the spill. Any leaking tanker valve or
loose-fitting nozzle should be identified and fixed. Immediate steps
should be taken to bring the spill under control and also the removed oil
should be degraded in a safe way.<br><br> Large wharves present in ports
can accumulate oil under their surfaces, and it becomes too difficult to
find out the oil spill unless they show up themselves. Ship propellers or
vacuum pumps are used to suck out the oil that is hidden underneath.
Again, the recovered oil should be treated in an appropriate way to
prevent any possible damage to the environment.<br><br> If oil dispersing
agents are harsh on the environment, then what could be an effective oil
spill cleanup strategy? Use of oil spill containment products that adopt
green technology is a better option. Oil Gone Easy S-200 is one such
green product that makes use of hydrocarbon eating bacteria for effective

spill cleanup</a>. It can give oil spill free clean ports in a matter of
days! This product has been used in the cleanup of the Port of
Pensacola.<br><br> It's always better to avoid spills. But, in a place
where there are hundreds of oil tankers loading and bunkering all types
of oil, completely preventing oil spills is almost next to impossible.
Even so, giving a good try is always feasible. A good waste management
system in ports with adequate resources to handle oil leaks and other
oily wastes is necessary. Careful handling of greasy materials is also
equally important. <a rel="nofollow"
