In the last 10 years oil recovery methods have advanced greatly with the development of many successful oil recovery technologies delivering a 99% removal rate. The true problem is the 1% of oil that can't be recovered as it sits within the water column. These minute oil particles cause the most long term environmental damage.
TWC is the final polishing treatment in all oil spill areas. This technology gives the basis to maintain hydrocarbon consuming bacteria that can deal with this one percent of toxic oil, removing it from the water column in a manner that is completely non toxic to the natural environment.
