Many million metric tons of crude and refined oil enter the environment each year as a result of anthropogenic sources such as oil spills. Dispersant products are designed to reduce the damages on marine ecosystem when an oil spill occurs. In the framework of a recent project funded by the Italian Ministry of the Environment (TAXA project), toxicity bioassays on native Mediterranean marine organisms have been standardized to assess oil dispersant toxicity.
