Hydrophobic meshes are a promising technique for recovery of spilled oil in the ocean. It consists of a clean and efficient technique to recover and store oil. Amphos 21 developed an App in COMSOL Multiphysics® as an easy-to-use customizable tool for the design and optimization of these meshes.
- a) Conceptual model of a hydrophobic mesh
- b) field operation: a boom towed by boats hems in the oil while hydrophobic meshes collect it.
