Contract Award Value
Estimated Completion Date

This project will continue development of a Recovery Efficiency (RE) sensor that can be used during oil response operations to accurately measure the percentage of oil and water in recovered fluid across the entire range of concentrations. Battelle will enhance functionality of the Phase I prototype including improved accuracy across the entire range of concentrations, ability to account for air in the recovered fluid, addition of wireless data transfer, and packaging of the system for easy deployment and use. Four systems will be delivered at the end of the contract for future field testing.

Latest progress update

The sensors were tested at Ohmsett in July, 2023 and the contractor is currently analyzing the test data.
