Kevin Costner devised an oil centrifuge that BP will use?

by admin on May 19th, 2010

According to a Nola.com article “BP has decided that a $24 million oil-water separator promoted by actor Kevin Costner could be useful in its response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, WWL-TV reports.

Costner came forward this month with an oil spill cleanup technology he started devising after the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill in Alaska. He demonstrated a centrifuge that he said could be placed on barges and used to suck in oily water, separate the oil and spit out mostly pure water.

BP watched the machine at work this past Thursday.”
I’ve seen his band “Modern West” and there not bad. I guess he’s a man of many talents.
