Containment boom is a temporary floating barrier used to contain an oil spill. It is often the first containment method to be used and the last equipment to be removed from the site of an oil spill. They are used for concentrating oil so that it is thick enough to be skimmed, for keeping oil out of sensitive areas, or for diverting oil into collection areas. Containment booms are widely considered the most environmentally acceptable response technique to cleanup oil spills.
