Submission + - Oil at sea is recoverable with greasy wool (bloomberg.com)

tchernobog writes: "Sometimes simple ideas are the best ones. An Italian group from Biella has developed a new method to clean oil spilled at sea by using greasy wool. Up to 950,000 tons of oil can be collected with 10,000 tons of inexpensive wool, without the risk of polluting the sea any further. The method has been presented to BP to be employed in the recovery of the Gulf of Mexico."
