This winter is forecasted to be much colder than last winter. La Niña, the colder sister of El Niño, is bringing in precipitation that should be above normal in the United States. This is likely to bring above average snow fall events in the Northeast and the Great Lakes region. This climate pattern will carry snow falls from the ocean waters in the Central Pacific Ocean starting late fall to early spring of 2018. You might want to keep your snow shovels handy! And keep the roads and sidewalks safe this winter with meltco De-Icers.
The below three-product line-up is catered for your needs.
This fast acting Calcium Chloride formulation has been designed to perform quickly and more effectively in very cold temperatures than most ice melting products on the market. It is an exothermic product which creates heat when comes in contact with snow and ice. The non-caking formula along with anti-corrosion additives make the product last longer and easy to use. Its natural ability along with minerals and micro nutrients buffers the effects of chlorides on vegetation and environment.
A very friendly option for snow and ice melting around children, pets, landscapes, roofs and vegetation. It consists of naturally occurring complex trace minerals and micro nutrients in addition to the chloride family. The solution is formulated with CMA and organic elements extracted from sea water. Its natural ability along with minerals and micro nutrients buffers the effects of chlorides on vegetation and environment. Designed for faster melting and easier spreading at colder temperatures than typical ice melting products. The green biodegradable colorant added to the product minimizes the usage and increases its effectiveness.
One of the most economical products on the market is formulated to quickly and effectively de-ice and anti-ice variety of surfaces. It lowers the freezing point of the surface to make the melting process very gentle. The non-caking formula along with anti-corrosion additives extend the shelf life of the product and make it easy to use. Its natural ability along with minerals and micro nutrients buffers the effects of chlorides on vegetation and environment.
meltco™ products have no nitrogen or phosphorus added, making it an ideal snow and ice melting solution around any body of water.
“Nutrient pollution is one of America’s most widespread, costly and challenging environmental problems, and is caused by excess nitrogen and phosphorus in the air and water.
Nitrogen and phosphorus are nutrients that are natural parts of aquatic ecosystems. Nitrogen is also the most abundant element in the air we breathe. Nitrogen and phosphorus support the growth of algae and aquatic plants, which provide food and habitat for fish, shellfish and smaller organisms that live in water. But when too much nitrogen and phosphorus enter the environment – usually from a wide range of human activities – the air and water can become polluted. Nutrient pollution has impacted many streams, rivers, lakes, bays and coastal waters for the past several decades, resulting in serious environmental and human health issues, and impacting the economy.
Too much nitrogen and phosphorus in the water causes algae to grow faster than ecosystems can handle. Significant increases in algae harm water quality, food resources and habitats, and decrease the oxygen that fish and other aquatic life need to survive. Large growths of algae are called algal blooms and they can severely reduce or eliminate oxygen in the water, leading to illnesses in fish and the death of large numbers of fish. Some algal blooms are harmful to humans because they produce elevated toxins and bacterial growth that can make people sick if they come into contact with polluted water, consume tainted fish or shellfish, or drink contaminated water.
Nutrient pollution in ground water – which millions of people in the United States use as their drinking water source – can be harmful, even at low levels. Infants are vulnerable to a nitrogen-based compound called nitrates in drinking water. Excess nitrogen in the atmosphere can produce pollutants such as ammonia and ozone, which can impair our ability to breathe, limit visibility and alter plant growth. When excess nitrogen comes back to earth from the atmosphere, it can harm the health of forests, soils and waterways.”
