●Providing research and development information
|When a major oil spill occurs, it is important to take response measures based on an appropriate contingency plan to minimize the damage. Petroleum Association of Japan (PAJ) has been promoting various research and development programmes in order to provide necessary information to compile the contingency plan that enables to efficient use of equipments as well as human resources. PAJ is now promoting the improvement and maintenance of the diffusion/drifting simulation model of spilled oil, research and development of the use of oil dispersant, and development of the support tools for oil spill response based on our previous research activities.
