I don’t see where Nalco, the company supplying the dispersant chemicals to help with the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico, will come out ahead by following a policy of withholding the exact chemicals they are using.

For one thing, it’s bad PR. For another, a lot of people with high powered analytical equipment are going to be analyzing this stuff, and no doubt publishing the results.

Nalco would do well to get out ahead of the curve on this one, stop listening to their attorneys, and get this out.
