TRS: Field Usage of Alternative Deicers for Snow and Ice Control

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  10/16/2017

Summary:

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. Relevant information will be gathered using a comprehensive literature review, practitioner survey and interviews. The primary deliverable will be a concise synthesis report
