Field Testing (WP8)

Field testing of most promising technologies and benchmarking with existing products

Michail Yakimov, CNR-IAMC

This Demonstration work package aims at benchmarking and testing in field experiments the most promising Kill●Spill products and technologies tackling oil-spill cleanup. These field tests will be performed in mesocosm facilities at CNR-IAMC and in real life oil spills. Quantitative evaluation of the efficiency of biodegradation will be estimated at large scale and over long periods of time so that potential problems related with efficacy of developed technologies will be analysed and fine-tuned before the real life oil spill intervention.
Major objective:

  • Validation of the most promising (bio)technologies and tools developed in WP 2-6 in mesocosms and in real oil spills
