Clean-up of Oil Spill in Dalian

Photo | 2012-03-27

Without proper protective equipment, fisherman scoop up oil sludge that has contaminated nearby fish pens off Dalian. Crude oil contains significant quantities of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and other dangerous chemicals that do not readily dissolve in water. Hydrocarbons can be absorbed by the human body via inhalation, ingestion or through direct contact with skin. Greenpeace strongly urged the government to send professional clean-up staff with safety equipment to work on the oil spill.
