Mechanical Recovery of Oil in Ice

Research Report

SUMMARY REPORT – MECHANICAL RECOVERY IN ICE

This report provides an overview of mechanical recovery of oil in ice-covered waters and the results of JIP-contracted feasibility evaluations of methods for mechanical recovery in four areas:

  1. New Vessel Design Concepts;
  2. Remote Recovery Units;
  3. On-board Oil-Water-Ice Separation; and
  4. On-board Recovered Oil Combustion Systems.
