Solar-assisted fast cleanup of heavy oil spills using a

Rapid cleanup of heavy oil spills is always considered a great challenge because conventional porous oil sorbents cannot efficiently remove them due to the high viscosity of heavy oil (>10 3 mPa s). In this work, we take advantage of the photothermal effect to heat heavy oil by using sunlight as the energy source to significantly reduce its viscosity and thus to achieve a fast heavy oil cleanup.
