New ‘Sponge’ Material Is Like a ShamWow for Oil Spills

(Credit: jukurae/Shutterstock) When an oil tanker runs aground or a deep-sea good suffers a leak, millions of gallons of oil can inundate into a ocean. Once there, oil slicks can be tremendously formidable to contain, and poise risks to ocean-dwellers and coastlines when they rinse ashore in waves of gummy sludge. Normal containment measures engage […]
