wow 6.000 tonnes




Apr╦s ramassage, le produit peut ═tre trait╚ par la s╚paration de lÝeau, r╚chauffage ou par un traitement chimique. De plus, pour compl╚ter le ramassage, des dispersants pourront ═tre ╚pandus : l'hydrocarbure sera alors mis en suspension dans l'eau de mer sous forme de fines gouttelettes.


After the collection, the oil is being seperated from the water via a chemical treatment.
........??...

What does the rest means??

Translation ( I did my best, so, be comprehensive, thanks )

Moreover, in order to complete the collecting, dispersants could be spreaded: the hydrocarbons will then be put in suspension in sea water in the form of fines droplets.

I hope that my translation is not too bad.
