Can carbon nanotubes clean up toxic spills?



  1. 0 Votes

    Yes, certain types of carbon nanotubes have been designed to suck up immense amounts of organic matter, in some cases, up to 180 times their own weight. These could be applied to areas affected by oil spills to clean up the pollution, but it would also suck up all the microscopic bacteria and crustaceans upon which the entire marine food system is based, so it could have unintended repercussions.
