This can result in synergistic benefits, but selection is critical to avoid competitive behaviors with the dispersant chemistries.
Dispersants (including Specialty Dispersants for Auto Dish)
During the study, scientists tested lame from two coral species widespread in the Florida Keys in water containing the dissolved components of Deepwater Horizon oil, weathered oil, the dispersant Corexite 9500 and the combination of oil and dispersant.
Pedigo has aggressively challenged the EPA for, as he alleges, "not adhering to the spirit of the very Clean Water Act that the EPA is there to enforce by pre approving toxic Corexit dispersants.
DOW Coating Materials says it will produce more dispersants to meet fast growing demand from customers across the world.
During the cleanup of the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill, nearly 2 million gallons of dispersants were used to help keep the oil from fouling the shoreline of the Gulf of Mexico.
Researchers from Utrecht University in the Netherlands and Florida State University examined the effects of the Corexit 9500A - a chemical dispersant BP pumped into surface waters and at the wellhead in response to the spill.
The sheen has thinned considerably due to a combination of natural factors and dispersant application, and in places is breaking up, all of which should aid further dissipation," a Shell statement said.
26, 2010, in the journal Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T), Kujawinski and colleagues showed that the highly powerful mass spec and their method were also well-suited to detect, measure, and definitively identify minute quantities of chemical compounds from the Deepwater Horizon spill, including a compound in the dispersant Corexit.
The amount of dispersant used was unprecedented, as was using dispersant at the wellhead, one mile below the surface.
Washington, August 21 ( ANI ): A new dispersant made from ingredients used in common food products like peanut butter, chocolate, ice cream not only breaks up oil slicks, but also keeps oil from sticking to the feathers of birds, according to scientists.
Prior to the federal government's announcement, a "rigorous sensory analysis" (a sniff test), was the only measure in place to test seafood samples for dispersant contamination.
