Current oil spill skimming technology could only collect 3% of the DeepWater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The health of workers was exposed to cancerous toxic, the boats were expensive and pollutive to operate, they could not operate in bad weather (hurricane seaon) they could not operate at night or far away.

Protei is a technology currently in development that will provide
- Unmanned oil spill recovery, no human exposed to toxic.
- Green and cheap, sailing upwind capturing oil downwind
- Self-righting, rugged, can operate in hurricane time
- Semi-autonomous : can run continuously and far away.

Protei is developed as an Open Hardware standard, so you can use, modify, distribute protei's design - and share your findings.
