The future of dispersant use

Cedre Information Day, 17 March 2011, Saint-Denis-La-Plaine.

The continuous three-month oil spill following the Deepwater Horizon explosion led to widespread use of uncommon or even completely novel techniques. With this as a backdrop, our Strategic Committee chose to focus our 2011 Information Day on the future use of dispersants.

To do so, we have invited speakers directly involved in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill response and prone to provide a new perspective or reflexive methodology on the future of dispersant use and its limits. This event will also, we hope, be an opportunity for productive debates not only in terms of techniques but also through a more strategic and prospective approach to dispersant use in untapped geographical areas.
