Abstract

Due to the report of incidences of damage caused by chloride deicers in recent years, the need for eco-friendly deicers has increased. However, it is necessary to enhance the quality and economic feasibility. The present study derived the optimal mix of eco-friendly deicers utilizing industrial by-products and compared their performance with those of existing chloride deicers. The test results showed that the eco-friendly deicer had better performance in terms of freezing point and in ice melting tests than calcium chloride-based deicers. The eco-friendly deicer displayed little corrosion in the steel corrosion test. In the snow melting performance evaluation, liquid eco-friendly deicers demonstrated a better performance in initial snow melting than powder calcium chloride-based deicers, verifying their applicability to real sites.
