Thursday the 6th of September, 2007 the local media report on what is considered to be the largest oil spill ever seen on the River Boyne in Drogheda, Ireland. The spill is reported to the environment sections of Drogheda Borough Council and subsequently Louth County Council.
Due to the environmentally sensitive nature of the Boyne, with its fresh water / salt water interface, its unique habitat and bird sanctuaries a product that would break-up and clean the spill without damaging the habitat or wildlife was needed. S-200 OilGone Bioremediation solution met and surpassed all these requirements
A coastguard helicopter was summoned to locate the source and size of the slick. Booms were laid across the river by the attending Fire Brigade and Coastguard so as to contain the oil as much as possible. Local volunteer groups helped in the spraying of S-200 OilGone onto the water surface.
S-200 OilGone encapsulates the oil on contact within its matrix. Local occurring bacteria feast on the oil in an accelerated state, turning the oil into carbon dioxide and water. Then the bacteria eat the matrix itself and return unchanged to the local environment. There is no residue. Nothing to clean-up. Within minutes of adhering to the oil, the sheen has disappeared.
OIl removed from birds and nesting areas using PRP Powder. Simply apply to nesting areas and let it eradicate the oil without disturbing or damaging the birds. The wild fowl suffered no duress during this procedure and their nesting areas were completely cleared of oil.
