NIOSH wanted to do more, but...
"They couldn't get Exxon to release its clinical data,
and Exxon controlled access to workers at remote locations." *

Regarding the lauded use of bioremediation
... in particular Inipol EAP 22
It's not much of a fertilizer considering it has a C:N:P ratio of 62:5:1 *
The key: This was an Exxon product: per Exxon's MSDS for it 7-28-89
(Yes, then it was an Exxon product with MSDS produced by Exxon),
It may really be a "surfactant", * Phosphorus? really... *
but, by calling it a "fertilizer"
(which technically it could be considered to be),
there would be far greater public acceptance of it being sprayed onto a beach.
"I am amazed that a Biochemist did not (apparently) have the opportunity of evaluating your Inipol product, before approving it for general use." - field & lab tested simultaneously *
"In regard to C:N:P:S ratios, these are not appropriate. Further there are molecular "Keys", catalysts, micro nutrients to be considered as well.
Surely, almost any Biochemist/Bacteriologist would know that" - per a Specialist in the bioremediation field.
'Twas an Experiment. Putting it nicely *
