The 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill showed the catastrophic effects that a marine oil spill can have on its surroundings. It takes quick thinking and extensive knowledge by environmental engineers to mitigate the damages that these accidents have on marine ecosystems. This year’s environmental engineering competition will simulate an oil spill and ask teams to develop their own system to remove and recover oil after these disasters.
