The developed fabric will also help protect the environment since we can use the fabric to suck the oil spilled in oceans and clean the restaurant kitchens. Since there were no effective tools available to clean the oil spill, which affects the aquatic biodiversity of oceans, Sharma said that the fabric developed by recycling the thermocol will help us save the environment. He further said that “we can also prevent the waste oil from flowing into drains from kitchens and restaurants, which would further pollute the water bodies and groundwater table.
