A BP (NYSE:BP) executive adamantly insists that there's no better dispersant for the pollution cleanup. Not to mention the dispersant that the EPA is now demanding be replaced, was approved by the Unified Command, the national guard, as well as the EPA.
It is an approved product and is effective in the pollution cleanup. Doug Suttles, BP's chief operating officer stated on Good Morning America, "it's making a difference in this fight to try and keep this stuff from coming to shore."
Suttles also stated, BP intents to continue looking for a better alternative but, "right now we cannot identify another product that is available that's better than Corexit." This statement leaves many wondering if BP will comply with the deadline the EPA has given it.
BP said in a statement to ABC News, the chemical is "one of the most well studied dispersants." It's choice of the use of Corexit was based partially on being able to "get a sufficient supply to meet our needs on a short notice."
