Last Monday, Dr. Richard Denison, one of the Environmental Defense Fund’s senior scientists, blogged about a set of dispersants that gave him cause for concern. BP, which had leased Deepwater Horizon before it exploded on April 20, selected two controversial chemicals to clean up the Gulf oil spill. He noted that the two dispersants, COREXIT® EC9500A and COREXIT® EC9527A, scored worse on fish and shrimp toxicity than many of their competitors in EPA tests. To make matters worse, the chemicals, manufactured by a firm with close ties to BP, were being used in lieu of safer and more effective alternatives on the market.
