Green Week: The Gulf Spill, 1-Year Later

Wednesday, 20 Apr 2011 | 5:45 PM ET

Hard as it may be to imagine, a year has gone by since the tragic events in the Gulf.

It was on April 20, 2010 that the Deepwater Horizon, a rig owned by Transocean, burst into flames after drilling a well for BP, killing 11 workers on or near the drilling floor.

The rest of the crew evacuated, but two days later the rig toppled into the Gulf and sank to the sea floor.

Over the next 85 days, 206 million gallons of oil — 19 times more than the Exxon Valdez spilled — spewed from the well.

Much has changed in the one year since the spill but one thing that hasn't is the upward momentum in shares of environmental disaster response company Clean Harbors.

What must you know about this company?
