Arctic Oil Spill Response Technology Joint Industry Programme (JIP) Infographics

Oil spills in the Arctic require specific clean-up techniques since the presence of ice has to be taken into account. Several techniques are employed, such as using booms to corral oil, in-situ burning to burn off most of the oil and chemical dispersants to diffuse oil. Take a look at JIP’s Arctic Response Technology website for descriptions of how they could employ each device or technique.
