Enhancement of oil retention and biodegradation in pervious pavements and infiltration systems

T. Puehmeier, D. De Dreu, J.A.W. Morgan, A. Shuttleworth & A. P. Newman
This paper reports recent developments in oil trapping and oil biodegrading systems in pervious pavements and in infiltration systems used in conjunction with non-pervious surfaces. The advances made in the technology and operation of pervious surfaces fitted with an integrated oil water separator will be described. This involves a newly developed, floating mat system which serves to interact with any oil which, in the event of a large spill, passes through the initial oil retaining...
