A team of IIT Mandi researchers has developed a method that uses soot, emitted by diesel engines, to remove oil and organic chemicals from water. The team incorporated diesel soot, which contains carbon known to absorb organic pollutants in water, into polymer sponges. They found that these recyclable sponges had a high absorption capacity of various oils without any pretreatment.
