Coastal oil pollution was hard to clean up because we used biodegradation directly on beach, but lacked a significant method. This study investigates a centralized plant method on treating oil pollution associated with heavy oil by a treatment plant. Giving up the treatment of beach oil pollution directly, the pollutants, which were from the marine accidents occurring in Penghu or Taitung County, Taiwan, were transported to a centralized treatment plant to wash out and made photo degradation. Such treatments were finished in 4 days, which were more powerful than years that made biodegradation directly on beach. This technology will sufficiently find application in prevention of marine pollution with many advantages without secondary pollution, and can generally applied to the prevention of oil pollution on rocky coast and beach coast.
Governments take necessary steps to treat oil pollution by the present method will probably shorten the coastal remediation period and minimize losses.
