What a way to clean up

(Thanks to NoCamels) Israeli CleanTech start-up EcoBasalt has developed SB-1, a sustainable material made of basalt fibres that can absorb oil spills faster and more efficiently than other solutions. After 15 minutes, 97% of the oil is absorbed and the oil and SB-1 can be recycled later.
