IV. SPECIAL HANDLING AND WORKER PRECAUTIONS FOR STORAGE AND FIELD APPLICATION
1. Flammability:
INIPOL EAP 22 is non-flammable.
2. Ventilation:
Ventilation of the work place is not necessary.
3. Skin and eye contact; protective clothing; treatment in case of contact:
In case of contact with skin or eyes, wash with plenty of water.
4.a. Maximum storage temperature: 122ºF
4.b. Minimum storage temperature: 52ºF
4.c. Optimum storage temperature range: 55ºF-65ºF
4.d. Temperatures of phase separations: <52ºF and >122ºF
V. SHELF LIFE
The recommended shelf life is one year. However, if the product is stored indoors within the optimum temperature range, this shelf life can be extended. For instance, the shelf life can reach 400 days if the product is stored at 60ºF. On the contrary, if the storage temperature is higher than the optimum range, the shelf life will decrease. At 86ºF the shelf life will be only 100 days.
VI. RECOMMENDED APPLICATION PROCEDURE
1. Application Method:
Application of INIPOL EAP 22 can be made by using any spreading system, including typical spreading systems for marine dispersants. It can be sprayed from airplanes, helicopters, or ships equipped with spray racks. It can also be sprayed with firehose nozzles or any other means allowing product spreading.
2. Concentration/Application Rate:
The application rate is 10% based on amount of oil, i.e., 26 gallons per ton of oil.
3. Conditions for Use:
INIPOL EAP 22 should be used in sea waters with temperatures above 52ºF. It is effective on weathered oils and is recommended for shore cleanup.

Control: -6.41%
Nutrient: 50.91%
Product (INIPOL EAP 22): 49.95%
VIII. MICROBIOLOGICAL ANALYSIS
In the presence of crude oil treated by INIPOL EAP 22, a considerable growth of the heterotrophic microflora can be observed; the number of bacteria increases from 1,000 per ml. to 1,000,000 per ml. This activity remains constant during the whole test period, while crude oil, just by its presence, creates a fall in the metabolic activities.
