FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 30, 2010



TODAY: Top EPA Scientist to Discuss Data from First Round of Dispersant Testing



WASHINGTON – Paul Anastas, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s assistant administrator for Research and Development, will hold a press conference call TODAY, June 30 at 2:30 p.m. to discuss the data from EPA’s first round of independent dispersant testing.



On May 22, EPA directed BP to analyze potential alternative dispersants for toxicity and effectiveness. BP reported to EPA that they were unable to find a dispersant that is less toxic than Corexit 9500, the product currently in use. Following that, EPA began its own scientific research into eight dispersant products on the National Contingency Plan Product Schedule (NCP-PS).



Anastas will discuss data from the first round of that research on the call.



Due to limited lines, this call is for credentialed members of the media only. Reporters wishing to join should dial (888) 539-8821 at 2:20 p.m. and provide the conference ID, which is 85537303. The conference call name is “EPA's Update on Dispersant Research.” International callers should dial (706) 758-2093 and provide the same conference ID.
