High-performance oil absorbent made from mesoporous nanofiber networks

Researchers have developed a high-performance oil absorbent with the function to purify oil-contaminated water (e.g. water discharged upon oil production) at a low cost. This new oil absorbent will provide an energy-efficient and low-cost water purification system at the site of resource development.
