ABSTRACT
The article focuses on technological innovations to ease recent oil spills, like the one in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010. It says that one of the responses is the use of large fire booms. However, while it has been already recognized in the U.S. since 1990s as a viable oil spill response tool, burning of marine oil spill has become infrequent and costly. It tells that a joint project, involving U.S. Coast Guard Research & Development Center, was created to evaluate several fire-resistant booms.
