Sustainable Salt

SIMA and Viaesys are working together to research application rates for snow professionals in real-world settings. This information will be coupled with research conducted by Snow and Ice Control for Parking Lots, Platforms, and Sidewalks (SICOPS) to determine a helpful set of recommendations for salt applications that make business sense and proactively address environmental concerns associated with overapplication.

Join the Solution

We seek leaders in the industry who are willing to invest in the process of collecting real-world data on salt application rates. After an initial investment in equipment, you will be outfitted with a web-based, GPS-enabled salt tracking system that automatically tracks material as sites are serviced. We will also provide some supplemental marketing materials for research participants so they can share with clients and prospects.
