Toxicity of PCB´s contaminated oils to freshwater algae Scenedesmus dimorphus was analyzed considering two situations: high and low dispersion. The results indicates that contaminated oils are 192 times more toxic when they are dispersed. Therefore, for events where PCB´s contaminated oils are spilled, chemical dispersion procedures are not recommended.
