The impact of pollution from oil spills, from the bridge explosion Deep Horizon, indeed unprecedented. Therefore, effort to close these leaks also require a lot of scenarios. British Petroleum (BP), the UK, initially thought that marine pollution can be solved by using a giant concrete funnel. Whose function is as a container of oil spills from damaged wells. For hours, the workers closed the hole drilling with steel hopper weighing nearly 100 tons. Thus, through the funnel, oil is expected to be pumped, to be collected in tankers. But at a depth of 1500 m below the sea, a very high pressure and temperature is very cold. Gas and water are mixed and form a clot out a small crystal inside the steel dome. Clumps of crystals is lighter than water and gather up, so that the dome is clogged.

Efforts of the most recent being sprayed dispersant into the sea areas polluted by oil. The aim is not to eliminate the oil content in sea water directly. However, these efforts are expected to destroy clumps of oil, which is more like asphalt, which will be more easily parsed by marine microbes. Approximately one million liters of dispersant use today, namely the manifold Corexit 9500, and Corexit EC9527A.

Other extreme efforts also attempted to block the widening of marine pollution. That is by using hair and fur animals, which was then wrapped in a stocking. Tons of hair was collected by ramput stylists throughout the U.S., to assist the absorption of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Results collected from the hair is already quite a lot, and stored in 15 warehouses in the area around the disaster. Hair is a very efficient material to absorb all types of oil, including gasoline. Thick oil which will be attached to and absorbed by the pores in the hair.

The next effort is to pump the mud into the hole damaged wells. Hopefully, with a more gritty and dense, the gaping hole could be closed. But these efforts have also been reported to fail.
