Adsorption of expanded graphite on water pollution control, has a large number of research results, in terms of controlling oil, organic pollution of water body, far more effectively than current conventional activated carbon expanded graphite and economic. Expanded graphite inconvenient transport, application site preparation needs. Expanded graphite preparation of environmental protection, use, recovery, recycling a certain degree of technical difficulty, coupled with enough attention to environmental protection in the past, eg industrialization of eco-friendly materials have not been able to. Now expanded graphite material technical base for the industrialization of environmental protection has, from both the technical level of this project.
Increasingly frequent oil and organic water pollution emergencies, special ships for construction of integrated water and environmental protection, enclosure, pumping and other traditional means and high oil absorption of expanded graphite can be combined to improve pollution control capacity. This is a systemic project involving cross-sectoral, multidisciplinary, involving ships, marine management (maritime), and environmental protection, involving science and technology of mechanical, materials, chemical, thermal, environmental protection and so on. It is a difficult project, but after the completion of the environmental benefits, technology will be the world’s leading.
