An HeiQ employee demonstrates their new fleece that can absorb oil in water at the company plant in Bad Zurzach June 24, 2010. The oil guard -- which looks like a heavy felt -- is water resistant and can absorb up to seven times its weight in crude oil. Along with its German partner TWE, HeiQ can each day produce enough to cover up to 10 km of coastline and could be used in a plan to save the oil-drenched coastlines of the Gulf of Mexico, according to the company's heads.

A man looks at Trabant cars during a fan meeting at the 50th anniversary of the Trabant car in Zwickau November 10, 2007. Fifty years after the first Trabant rolled off an assembly line on Nov. 7, 1957, the boxy vehicle has become the focus of a cheap-chic hot rod culture. It was designed as the communist answer to the Volkswagen Beetle but it was built on the cheap and little altered before production halted in 1991. The bodywork was made of plastic mixed with paper or cotton fibre to save on steel imports, the back windows did not open and the noisy two-stroke engine sent a polluting stench of burnt oil and gasoline into the air. The factory in Zwickau churned out 2.2 million of the Trabant 601, the most common model, from 1964 to the mid-1980s. REUTERS/Hannibal Hanschke (GERMANY)
