Dispersant and sorbent testing

We test the efficiency of various types of response products in the laboratory: dispersants, sorbents, washing agents, etc.

For a test procedure

Whatever the response product, we perform tests according to clearly defined methods standardised by the French standardisation association AFNOR. Below are the lists of products we have tested and approved.

To check stocks

As the shelf life of dispersants is not infinite, it is important to periodically check that the products in emergency stockpiles are properly preserved. We can control the efficiency and, where relevant, the toxicity of a batch of dispersant.
