What news?

An online working meeting for the European project IMAROS (see Newsletter n°297) was held from 1st to 3rd March.

The discussions were led by Cedre, in charge of Work Package 3 (physico-chemical characterisation, weathering and ecotoxicity) and mainly focused on the results of the physico-chemical characterisation conducted at laboratory scale on thirteen 2-litre samples of ULSFO, in case of a marine spill.

Based on these results, which revealed a broad array of behaviours, the second phase of discussions aimed at selecting 3 or 4 products for the following pilot-scale weathering phase (in the Polludrome®) and ecotoxity and efficiency tests for various response techniques (containment/recovery, dispersants, in situ burning) under Work Package 4.

The products selected include the bunker fuel of the MV Wakashio for the Polludrome® trials, for which the trials at 5°C and 15°C were conducted in March.
