Alternative Oil Spill Cleanup Methods

Does anyone know of any alternative ways to clean up oil spills?  I am looking for methods other than dispersants, since it is still unclear whether they would work on the Arctic because the water is cold there.  I have read about naturally occurring microbes in seawater which could break down the oil or super-absorbent materials. Does anyone have more detailed information on these?  Which alternative oil spill cleanup methods do you know about?
