Abstract

Oil spills have been greatly impacting the ecosystem and drinking water in the Niger Delta, causing adverse health effects on the Nigerian people. We propose the use of hair mats to remove oil from contaminated water. Two filter systems were made to attempt to remove oil from the water. Though precise data could not be collected, we were able to visually show the effectiveness of hair mats.
