Local Woman Develops Method To Clean Up Oil Using Corn Cobs

WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. -- The key to cleaning up the oil catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico just might be an invention from a local woman.

Government scientists are already testing years worth of data from Adria Brown of West Bloomfield.

Brown developed a special kind of dried corn cob, a patented technology called Golden Retriever.

Brown's company is called Recovery I. They have thousands of tons of specially dried corn cobs that soak up oil and other chemicals in a matter of hours.

Brown believes Golden Retriever is a good way to help clean up the oil that has gushed from the BP oil leak.

"I believe they have to use it because it's clean; it doesn't release; it's not messy; you can extract 100 percent of whatever it takes up; it holds 500 times its weight," Brown said.

It's made out of the same corn anyone can find at local supermarkets.

It's been a 17 year development project that is now being looked at by the U.S. Senate as a way to somehow minimize the damage from the catastrophic BP oil spill.

"What became so unique and a miracle is that once the cob has absorbed the oil, it holds it to its self and it doesn't release like other products," Brown said.

The specially processed cobs roll over the surface of the water and soak up the oil.

Once skimmed out of the water the oil can then be salvaged out of the cobs.

It may not be suitable for gasoline, but can be used in heating and motor oils.

Brown's breakthrough is patented in both the U.S. and Canada.

Brown started out testing her theories 17 years ago, with honey comb and cooking oil.

"I became very impassioned—I just had to do it," Brown said.

Brown told Local 4 that one of the leaders interested in her breakthrough is Sen. Charles Grassley from corn-loving Iowa.
