Join us to learn about surface collecting agents (SCAs) – compounds that can be used to herd oil during emergency response operations. Speakers will cover the history, science, and logistics of using SCAs during an oil spill. Complementary oil spill response techniques, as well as advances in developing the next generation of chemical herders, will also be covered. Held in conjunction with the Southeastern Louisiana Area Committee meeting, this seminar is free & open to the public and includes a free networking lunch attendees registered by March 5 – a great way to get to know folks from emergency response and other sectors. This seminar will be live-streamed the day of the event beginning at 12:45 for those who cannot attend in person.
