Oil Spill Dispersants
Dew manufacture a complete range of oil spill dispersants. These dispersants contain both surface-active agents and solvent systems. Each surfactant molecule has both a water-soluble 'head' group and an oil-soluble 'tail'. After contacting an oil slick on water, these molecules diffuse through the oil to the oil-water interface under the slick. The surfactant acts to lower the oil-water interfacial tension, which means it lowers the energy needed to mix the oil into the water. This makes it easy for the oil to disperse into the water phase as discrete droplets. Each droplet has a molecular layer of surfactant molecules around it which helps to prevent the droplets from recombining and keeps them dispersed in the water phase.
Extensive environmental testing has to be performed on all oil spill dispersants to ensure that their impact on the aquatic environmental is minimal. For this reason, only those components that are known to have favorable environmental properties are used.
