Oil Spill Cleaning & Rescue Solutions

Founding Year: 2010

Location: The Netherlands

OCRS provides a service for polluters to remove spilled oil from water surfaces.

Every day our waters are heavily polluted by millions of litres of oil and we have seen the devastating damage to the environment and the economy of these pollutions. OCRS has developed a game changing method to respond to these spills. 

OCRS sprays a patented, non-toxic sustainable absorbent on the water which becomes a carpet and captures the oil. Oil and absorbent can be recovered, separated and recycled in the economy. In June 2015 the OCRS system has been tested with success on diesel oil and heavy fuel. 

The OCRS solution is designed for (yacht)harbours, rivers, inland waters and offshore areas.
