What is the largest oil spill in China’s history?

    It actually occurred on July 16, 2010, in the port of Xingang in Dalian. The flow of oil was stopped on July 22, and it was officially cleaned up on July 25th through low-tech methods such as soaking up the oil with bamboo mats. However, the oil appears to have persisted past this date. Although the government officially estimated the size of the spill at 1,500 tons, Dr. Richard Steiner actually estimated the size of the spill as being anywhere from 60,000 to 90,000 tons. I would suspect the latter figure is closer to the truth, given the Chinese government’s record of not providing accurate information.
