In this section you will find techniques that aim to clean beaches from chemical waste, namely oil and hydrocarbon waste. The section does however not include cleaning beaches from garbage.
Waste and pollutants that are released at sea will in many cases end up on the shores. The documents in this section offers technical solutions of how to sanitize beaches, for example after a big accident with big amounts of oil ending up polluting the shoreline. Of course there is an overlap with how to take care of oil spill in water, since many techniques can be applied both at sea and ashore.

The document SE8100822 shows an equipment that can be used to remove oil from a beach by spraying an oil absorbing substance onto the oil spill and then sucking up the oil containing absorbent.
The document DE3209652 shows a system that cleans oil polluted areas of beaches by covering these areas with seawater in a way that the oil floats on the water. The oil-water-mixture can then be sucked off and taken care of.
The document WO2004079099 shows an equipment to clean beaches by separating the sand from the polluting oil. The polluted sand is fed into a settle tank filled with water. In the settle tank the sand will sink to the bottom, while the light pollutants will remain floating.
