Removal of Weathered Crude Oil from Historic Brick

Removal of Weathered Crude Oil from Historic Brick

Ratings: (0)|Views: 289|Likes:
Much of the attention on the damage of oil spills is focused on the environment and the repercussions on local industries, but cultural heritage suffers just as much. NCPTT has been researching ways to mitigate the damage done to sites of historic and archaeological significance, such as Fort Livingston. This 19th century coastal fort on Grand Terre Island, Louisiana, was badly contaminated by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. This research project concerns the removal of weathered crude oil from historic brick and masonry like that used at Fort Livingston. The goal is to find a cleaning method that effectively strips the oil from the masonry without causing additional harm to either the structure or the environment.
