BP Ordered to Switch Dispersants
20 May 2010 4:42 pm
The Environmental Protection Agency yesterday ordered BP to switch to a dispersant that is less toxic than the ones currently being used, Corexit 9500A and 9527A. Representative Edward Markey (D-MA) had questioned whether the dispersants are safe and effective to use in deep water, which is colder and higher pressure than the surface.
