Partnering Provides New Winter Technology

www.betterroads.com [cached]

Harvey Williams, Operations Technician, Illinois DOT, took one of the lead roles in the development of winter maintenance activities.Williams became a national spokesman for the use of liquid and alternative deicers, with core experience in the use of salt brine.

Rather than tackling this project by himself, Williams enlisted my help.The corporation has taken a pro-active approach in the development of new ice melts and technology for the deicing market.
At the initial meeting, Enviro-Tech and IDOT laid out the ground rules and performance factors needed to accomplish a joint development effort.Williams indicated the performance characteristics of the new deicer and that he would be willing to conduct field testing, provide follow-up reports, and assist with development.Follow-up reports and evaluations are a must for this type of project.With limited funding, the Illinois DOT would need assistance with product development, lab testing, blending equipment, and added storage facilities.EnviroTech provided these services with a commitment from Williams to use the material throughout the remainder of the 2001/2002 winter.
At this point, each agency began putting the details together for the development effort.Williams went to gain approval from IDOT on the development of a new deicer, while I set out to pull together all the details for the supply of the product and equipment.
Over the next three months, Williams was able to obtain approval for the project from the Illinois DOT while EnviroTech focused its efforts on various materials to enhance the performance of salt brine.
Williams has been providing periodic updates, and all parties seem satisfied.
