Field Usage of Alternative Deicers for Snow and Ice Control
Started: November, 2016 Ended: June, 2017 Project ID #4w6421 Status: Completed
The goal of this project is to identify alternative deicers to chlorides for snow and ice control operations.
The goal of this project is to identify alternative deicers to chlorides for snow and ice control operations, with a specific focus on potassium acetate and succinate. The products will be assessed to determine if they allow transportation agencies to meet their defined level of service standards, are cost competitive, and have fewer impacts to the environment and infrastructure. A similar project (4W6403) funded by CESTiCC is also underway.
