CSA patents marine sediment remediation technology

Offshore staff

STUART, Florida – CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. has won a patent for a method and apparatus to assist in the remediation of marine sediment altered as a result of an oil spill, drilling discharge, or other discharges of organic compounds.

One application method for the Marine Sediment Remediation system is identifying underwater soil to be remediated; collecting soil from below a surface layer; and depositing the collected soil over the surface layer. 

An alternate method comprises identifying an area of underwater soil to be remediated and then injecting a fluid mix of water, oxygen and potentially other elements into or below the surface layer of the sediment. The system can be configured to address a variety of applications.

“CSA’s MSR System can be deployed from existing remotely operated vehicles and tracked trenching systems, thus substantially reducing the upfront capital cost, development time and mobilization costs to accomplish the remediation of damaged sea floor sediment,” said Kevin Peters, president and CEO of CSA.
