Oleology assisted by deploying MyCelx Terraguard and MyCelx Versimats in the channels leading from the outlets of each of the storm water drains into the lake.
The use of the MyCelx Terraguard booms across each of the channels acts as an “underflow weir” preventing surface flow oil and emulisifed oil and water from flowing under the boom, as would occur with conventional booms.
The second line of containment employs MyCelx Versimats, the large high floating mats are ideal for capturing the sheen should it escape the first line of containment during high flow events.
The high floating and high buoyancy booms are still capturing oil contaminants up to 12 months after initial deployment. Unlike other booms, MyCelx continues to float even when fully saturated with oil up to one year.
Each of the booms is able to capture up to 30kg of oil product giving them the highest capacity and longest deployment life of any boom available.
