Preliminary project progress- March 2014

With close cooperation with the SMEs, the RTDs in the project have accomplished in depth literature study and preliminary laboratory investigations that provides  enhanced understanding on the characteristics of bilge and slope water and SOA treatment methods, especially  application of electrolysis for separation of oil from bilge and/or slope water as a basis for the technical work in the development of the OileClear technology. Further to this, the scientific basis that has been established includes new knowledge on relevant parameters that impact on the electrochemical process, global design criteria and analytical methods for estimation of hydrocarbon index in the water to be treated by OileClear as well as potential generation of explosive and toxic gases under electrolysis of bilge water.
