At the moment, to clear out the oil spills there are used chemical preparations and the most common oil dispersing agent is Corexit. In 2010, for example, 7 million liters of Corexit have been used in the Gulf of Mexico to remove the consequences of the ecological disaster generated by the explosion of the ...
BP used two types of dispersant to break up the oil: Corexit 9500 and Corexit 9527, both manufactured by Nalco Environmental Solutions. About 770,000 gallons of dispersant were injected directly into the damaged wellhead about a mile under water. BP sprayed another 1 million gallons on the massive ...

The ones most commonly used are sold under the name Corexit, a line of dispersants comprising emulsifiers and solvents designed to lower the surface tension of oil as much as possible. But even the scientists at the New Orleans meeting aren't sure how these emulsions form and break up. One of the ...
In 2013, I wrote a further blog on Corexit after the American Journal of Medicine published a scientific study which revealed that workers exposed to crude oil and dispersants used during the BP cleanup displayed significantly altered blood profiles, liver enzymes, and bodily illnesses compared to an ...
Who is protecting the vulnerable human and non-human communities exposed to the toxic and fatal COREXIT 9500? Who is speaking for the marine animals who reside in this area and continue to die day after day?” FFOS said the community should be informed as to whether fish from these waters are ...
To combat the oil's spread, BP used two types of dispersant, Corexit 9500 and Corexit 9527, both manufactured by Nalco Environmental Solutions. Nearly 1 million gallons was dropped by air, and another 770,000 gallons was injected into the damaged wellhead about a mile under the water's surface.

I am concerned about accountability and responsibility in already-weak regulations that the Trump administration announced it is further rolling back. I am concerned about dangerous practices that devastated the Gulf's marine ecology, such as the use of the known cancer-causing substance Corexit, ...
One such method is spraying the oil with the chemical Corexit, which breaks up large clumps of oil into smaller pieces, allowing wind and waves to more easily sweep it away. But Corexit has been linked to fast-developing symptoms in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill's 30,000-person cleanup crew.
The report, published without fanfare in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives spelled out in clinical language what many here have long known: Deepwater Horizon cleanup workers exposed to Corexit during the nearly three months oil spilled into the sea were more likely to experience coughs, ...
Two dispersants, Corexit EC9500A and Corexit EC9527A, both manufactured by Nalco Environmental Solutions, were dropped by airplane to break up oil on the water's surface. It was the first time dispersants had been used on a large scale, and their potential effects on human health and the environment ...
The new study is the largest ever conducted that examined the health effects of Corexit products. During the spill, 1.8 million gallons of Corexit EC9500A or Corexit EC9527A were applied in the Gulf. More than 700,000 gallons of that was pumped deep under the surface of the Gulf and applied directly to ...
On-site burns, while somewhat effective in controlling the spill, caused significant pollution. The use of a chemical dispersant, called Corexit, was the most problematic practice used during the clean-up. This dispersant is popular in the oil industry because it quickly hides the oil from view. However, it did not ...
Corexit was used extensively during the Deepwater Horizon disaster in 2010 and three years later, scientists found the chemical had a negative impact on coral reefs in the Gulf of Mexico. An environmental impact assessment submitted by Total last summer found that a spill in the area around the reef ...

Nearly 1 million gallons were dropped by air, and another 770,000 gallons were injected into the damaged wellhead about a mile under the water's surface. It was the ...
The two types of chemical supplied by BP, Corexit 9500 and Corexit 9527, were used to reduce the interfacial tension between crude oil and water in order to make it easier to break down. According to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, workers brought in to clean up the spill had expressed concerns about ...
From April 20, 2010, to July 15, 2010, more than 200 million gallons of oil spilled into the Gulf followed by another one million gallons of Corexit, a dispersant mixture of solvents and surfactants that break down the oil into tiny droplets. It is documented that for 3 months, marine microorganisms have ...
Nestle is the biggest privatizer of water in the world, illegally buying public water at firesale cost and selling it back under pricegouging conditions. It markets water in bottles under hundreds of names including Perrier, Deer Park. The plastic bottles clog the landfills of the world adding to further deforestation.

A spate of research is finding that the dispersants used to break up the 2010 BP oil spill, Nalco's Corexit 9500 and Corexit 9527, are more toxic to the Gulf of Mexico's corals than oil alone. "You can see it visually in the disintegration of the corals," marine scientist Dennise Ruiz-Ramos said. "They degrade ...
For example, what environmental impact resulted from the oil spill? How long did it last? I have wondered for sometime about what I think are longer and more frequent red tide outbreaks. I also feel strongly that the treatment for the oil spill, Corexit, might have been more harmful than the spill. How long was ...

The two main dispersants being used, Corexit EC9500A and EC9527A are neither the least toxic, nor the most effective, among the dispersants approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. In fact, the UK has banned their use entirely. When BP was asked why they aren't using better dispersants, ...
... is significantly less hazardous than the use all-at-once of millions of gallons of Corexit or other chemicals that are currently permitted for use.
