Efficacy, Cost and Impacts of Non-Chloride Deicers: An Educational Primer and Product Information Sheets

The goal of this project is to synthesize available information on non-chloride deicers to allow for a more comprehensive understanding by winter maintenance professionals and allow for easy comparison between products and with sodium chloride (salt brine, rock salt). This will be accomplished through a literature search, survey, and evaluation of currently used standards and tests. Laboratory testing may be used to provide supplemental information. The outcomes will include a comprehensive literature review document, one to two-page product summaries and product information sheets for key non-chloride deicers.
