Oil dispersants, or “oil spill dispersant agents” as they are known scientifically, are composed of a variety of surfactants and highly permeable solvents that can deal with oil spills and clean oil pollution at sea. They are an essential product for the treatment of oil pollution at sea.
The mechanism of an oil dispersant is to emulsify the surface oil and cause the fine particles that subsequently form to disperse in the water. This type of treatment is mainly suitable for oil spills in open sea areas. Oil dispersants can be divided into two types: conventional type and concentrated type; the main difference lies in the content of the active substance.
