How is GM using recycled oil spill materials in its cars?

    GM is cleaning and using the the absorbent booms that were used to help clean up the oil in the Gulf of Mexico and reusing them in their passive car parts such as air dams and water deflectors. The booms absorbed the oil not the water which makes for water repellent material for parts that should not get wet.
    Using the recycled booms, whose oil and water was refined or used for energy, allowed GM and its supplier partners to:

    • Reuse 227 miles of the absorbent boom material
    • Save 29,000 gallons of water and oil from the nation’s landfills
    • Eliminate 212,500 pounds of waste from being thrown out
    • Eliminate 149 tons of CO2-equivalent emissions from entering the air
