Current State logoTwo and a half years later, oil spill clean-up continues on Kalamazoo River

It’s been two and a half years since an oil pipeline owned by the Canadian company Enbridge ruptured near Marshall, spewing hundreds of thousands of gallons of heavy crude oil into the Kalamazoo River. The incident has been one of the costliest oil spills in U.S. history and the clean-up is still ongoing.

Steve Hamilton, an MSU scientist who has been monitoring the clean-up, updates Great Lakes Echo and Current State on the situation.

    Someone from Enbridge needs to call me.

    I represent Monarch Green Inc., a new start-up company, located in Newport Beach, CA. We recently developed and patented a line of oil sorption products that are the most efficient cost effective products available on the market today.

    Our Oilinator Super Sorbent mats, socks and booms only absorb oil and they will never ever sink. Our products can also be reused multiple times. 55 gallon waste disposal drums equiped with a wringer can squeeze the oil from our products and collect the be recylced, refined or re-refined. Our products work fast and the extremely cost effective.

    We also sell our IncrediSorb granular product. One gallon of our IncrediSorb will pick up 1 gallon of oil, a 1 to 1 ratio without adsorbing a single drop of oil. We use this product to fill our Oilinator Super Sorbent mats, socks and booms.

    Please give me a call.

    Warmest regards,
