Project Title Oil Absorber
Project Category Innovation
Abstract Nowadays factories release wastes such as oil into the river or sea, thus endangering the aquatic life in the water. We are using human hair as a new idea to absorb oil in the water as it is easy to be obtained, cost effective and convenient in curbing the issue. Nylon wrapper was used to wrap the human hair to avoid it from spreading out and is neat. We can improve the ecosystem and help the economy of this country in reducing the cost of maintenance for this problem. In addition, Malaysia has not yet applied any effective or alternative method in solving this problem. This method is already being used in the Philippines but it only can be used at the seashore. Thus, we improved it by attaching the hair to the boat so that it can be flexible to be used at the seashore or in the middle of the sea.
