US EPA orders BP to use safer dispersants on spill

WASHINGTON, May 20 (BestGrowthStock) – The U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency on Thursday said it has ordered BP Plc (BP.L: )
to identify safer dispersants within 24 hours that can be used
to contain Gulf oil spill.

EPA directed BP to begin using this safer dispersant within
72 hours. If BP can not identify an available alternative
dispersant, the company must provide EPA and Coast Guard with
the reason why they believe no other dispersant meets required
standards.
