Span 80 is a biodegradable surfactant based on a natural fatty acid (oleic acid) and the sugar alcohol sorbitol. This sorbitan ester is highly effective at forming O/W emulsions, particularly when used in combination with its polyethoxylated derivative, Tween 80. Span 80 can be used in EPA approved oil spill dispersant formulations to accelerate the process of natural dispersion. It is adaptable to various application techniques and is compatible with a wide range of oil spill dispersant ingredients.
