Oil spill is a global problem that affects the well-being of all inhabitants of planet Earth. The purpose of this project is to investigate the absorption abilities of the common materials: hair and pomelo peel. This can be an inexpensive, renewable, and eco-friendly alternative helping marine spill cleanup efforts. We will compare the materials and determine the absorption abilities of each versus common marine pollutants to determine which is the better alternative. We hypothesize that hair will have a greater absorption ability. Our hypothesis was verified in our results; hair has a higher absorption ability than pomelo.
