Magic Nano in the Gulf of Mexico

Abstract:
British Petrol is still trying to stop the leaking of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Meanwhile, since the previous attemtps have not proven overall successful so far, the ecological and economic catastrophe in the region is growing, and quick alternatives to minimise the dramatic impacts of the oil on the aquatic life and the coastlines are needed. Is nanotechnology one of them?

A private US company named "Green Earth Technologies" (GET) has offered the EPA an oil dispersant product which is not only the solution for the Gulf oil spill disaster, but also "ultimate biodegradable" and based on "NANO emulsion technology". According to information given by GET, the product is composed of a different plant, tree, fruit and vegetable extracts which are processed into a colloidal micelle solution of less than 5 nanometers particle size.
