Kevin Costner’s Investment In Oil Cleaning Machine Comes to Fruition Just In Time
For the second time on Coast to Coast AM, a caller mentioned “Kevin Cosnter’s oil cleaning machine” or “oil machine”. I had forgotten to look it up the first time I heard of it, but did so this time, and I’m amazed. The pics are linked to a video on the device:
Gulf spill puts oil in Kevin Costner’s machine

KEVIN Costner has been given the go ahead to fulfill another dream – using his own machine to help clean up the massive BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
BP has approved a test of Costners Ocean Therapy device to help the company clean up the Gulf after its Deepwater Horizon drill rig exploded and began spewing oil into the water, officials said.
The machine – described as a processing device that separates oil from water – was first developed by scientists hired by Costner following the 1989 Exxon-Valdez oil spill off the coast of Alaska.
“The machines are basically sophisticated centrifuge devices that can handle a huge volume of water and separate at unprecedented rates,” Ocean Therapy Solutions CEO John Houghtaling said.
“They were developed from older centrifuge technology.
“Normal centrifuge machines are very slow and sensitive to different ratios of oil to water mixtures at intake. ”
Costner has been funding a team of scientists for the past 15 years to develop a technology that could be used for massive oil spills.
The Acad[e]my Award-winner could not be reached for comment, but told reporters last week that he wanted to help.
“Years before I got involved, oil spills came and I would wonder why we couldn’t clean this up,” he said. – Source
