With this in the envi- ronment department announc- ed today a set of guides on the use and acceptability of chemical dispersants recognize the potential of chemical dispersion as a technique for combatting oil but we must be selec- tive about their En- vironment Minister Jack Davis said in a news release marketed products have properties that can cause as much or more damage to the environment as oil could do if left untreated Hie main problem with dis- persants is that the oil becomes mixed with the instead of staying on the surface where it presents the most obvious pollution threat But breaking oil down into droplets to increase its biode- gradability also increases its surface area and thus presents a more insidious threat to marine organisms The published as a M-page are intended for use by federal and provin- cial pollution control agencies as well as the chemical and transportation industries and consulting firms.
