During the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, nearly 5 million gallons of crude oil was spewed into the Gulf of Mexico, making it the largest oil spill in U.S. history.
The main cleanup method for the Deepwater Horizon oil was a chemical dispersant known as Corexit, which emulsifies leaked oil and allows degradation by bacteria in the water, preventing oil spill side effects like tarballs.
