PI: Srinivasa Raghavan Institution: University of Maryland Title: Molecular Engineering of Food-Grade Dispersants
as Highly Efficient and Safe Materials for the Treatment of Oil Spills
A You need a robust dispersant
like Air Products' ZetaSperse[R] 2300.
As such, they provide negligible stabilization, have minimal interactions with the dispersant
or other surfactants.
Our unmatched functional expertise with an dispersants
, anti-soiling technologies, theology modifiers, .
The Deepwater Horizon rig spilled more than 200 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, and responders used nearly 2 million gallons of dispersant
to help keep oil slicks from reaching shore.
Pedigo questions: "What happened to the remainder of the estimated 2 million barrels of oil plus dispersant
chemicals left in the Gulf of Mexico and how are the continued appearing slicks and unnatural seeps from the fractured seabed floor in the Macondo zone being handled?
Investing in expanded dispersant
production continues Dow's ongoing objective to bring new products and technology innovations to market faster than ever before," continued Bermudez.
Synergistic toxicity of Macondo crude oil and dispersant
Corexit 9500A[R] to the Brachionus plicatilis species complex (Rotifera).
6 million gallons of dispersant
chemicals to disperse the huge quantities of crude oil spilling into the Gulf of Mexico.
He said, however, that Nigeria was better prepared this time, with some 210 tonnes of dispersant
being prepared to attack the spill, which has spread to an area between 35 and 45 miles (about 55-70km) in size.
Another benefit is the system's ability to allow for the full truck capacity to be used in high slump mixes, by enabling the truck to travel with low slump concrete and then automatically dose dispersant
to high target slump upon job site arrival.
But she recognized that it could readily be adapted to track chemical components from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, as well as the dispersant
used to try to clean it up.
