Kevin Costner cleaning up the Gulf

Thursday 8, July 2010

 

Kevin Costner cleaning up the Gulf

 

We should all give him credit for his oil-water separation device – it’s a step in the right direction and one of the many ways the nation is pulling together to combat this oil spill.

 

Who would have known he had spent millions on a device like this? His company, Ocean Therapy Solutions, writes that he’s been involved in oil spill clean-up solutions since 1993.

 

 

“In 1993 Kevin procured a technology transfer from the Department of Energy’s Idaho National Laboratory for a centrifugal oil-water separator. He founded Costner Industries (CINC) and committed the next 15 years, and over $20 million toward research and development, advocacy and outreach on behalf of a rugged, compact portable device that would serve as a first line of defense in oil spill clean up and recovery.”

 

Hollywood stars always seem to get involved in big events like this... this time, they’re doing more than donating money and acting as spokespeople.
