MARIN is project coordinator of the European research project Double Inverted Funnel for the Intervention on Shipwrecks (DIFIS), which aims to develop a cheap and flexible system to remove oil from shipwrecks - even if they are in very deep waters. The DIFIS system could have helped prevent major environmental disasters such as the Prestige and Erika cases.
