The NOTIL is a new generation trailer to recover oil spills, floating waste,… Its size and weight (50 kg) allow easy transport and deployment: two operators are sufficient to load several NOTIL on a boat and operate them. The implementation time of NOTIL is less than 5 minutes. NOTIL is one of the most cost-effective pollution response equipment on this market. NOTIL can be launched right out of packaging without any additional manipulation.Towed by the boat, the drag force on the NOTIL structure will deploy it. Once full of oil, the NOTIL is closed thanks to a closing rope sealing the content inside the net.

Depending on the boat characteristics, the trapped contaminant in the net can be loaded onboard the vessel or towed to the coast. Several sizes of mesh are proposed to match a large range of oil viscosity, or waste type.
