Dispersants Research

The Council monitors research and regulatory issues regarding dispersants, and for many years, the Council has been pursuing answers to questions surrounding dispersant effectiveness and toxicity in the cold waters of our region.

This pursuit has led to a number of council-sponsored studies on subjects including the toxicity of dispersed oil, swirling flask laboratory testing, photoenhanced toxicity, test tanks, re-surfacing of dispersed oil, dispersants policy and other related subjects.
