Physicists developed detailed quantum mechanical simulations that accurately predict the outcomes of various additive combinations in water used for enhanced oil recovery.
Nanoparticles derived from green mango peel could be the key to remediating oil sludge in contaminated soil according to new research.
A new analysis looks at what it would take for oil companies to start pumping millions of tons of carbon dioxide into their wells to boost crude production — and what it would mean for the climate.
A new study finds that oysters likely suffered toxic effects from the oil dispersant Corexit® 9500 when it was used to clean up the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Researchers determined this by comparing the low levels of toxicity of oil, the dispersant and a mixture of the two on Eastern oysters.
