Corexit (often styled COREXIT) is a product line of oil dispersants used to dissolve oil spills. It is produced by Nalco Holding Company, which merged with Ecolab in 2011 and is associated with BP and Exxon.Oil that would normally rise to the surface of water is emulsified into tiny droplets by a dispersant and remains suspended in the water.
