salvage
sauvetage


Explanation:
Despite the context you give, it seems to me that this term is being used here in the sense of 'marine salvage', in which case I believe this is the term used (cf. R + C)

I can't somehow think they are referring to 'salvage' in the sense of 'récupération', i.e. trying to recover the gasoil for re-use!

  -> I don't doubt that is part of their activites, but i feel sure that the word 'salvage' use din their name refers to aspects of marine salvage rather than the recovery/recycling of spilt gasoil.

salvage
récupération


Explanation:
Voici le site Web de la Cie :

http://www.magonemarine.com/Salvage Equipment.htm

Je crois qu'ils font de la récupération : de navires et de cargaisons sombrés, de produits pétroliers lâchés en mer etc.

En autant que je sache tous ces articles sont "récupérables".
