Study: BP oil spill dispersants hindered oil-eating microbes

from The Christian Science Monitor

Chemical agents dropped from a plane on the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico removed oil from the water's surface but did not help fully degrade it, a new study indicates. The research, led by scientists at the University of Georgia, shows that the dispersants actually suppressed oil-eating bacteria and slowed their ability to degrade oil. more
