Constant media attention on oil spills has created global awareness of their risks and the damage they do.

Oil is a necessity in today's industrial society, and since our dependence on it is not likely to and any time soon, we will continue to have spills. This indispensable reference supplies the information required to proceed with cleanup efforts immediately.
