greenSand road salt: now available
For the first time in the Netherlands, there is a possibility to combat slipperiness and at the same time to reduce CO2 to compensate for the spreader's emissions. The 21-year-old entrepreneur Pieter van Middelaar of PVM-ice control, greenSand and Arian Lenting of IFH Transport came up with a unique formula for de-icing agent. To distribute global emissions fairly, the Netherlands must reduce CO 2 by 91% produce. Every winter, thousands of gritters hit the road to clear Dutch roads and business parks from ice. From now on it is possible to compensate for the emissions of all these gritters with the help of a special spreading agent: greenSand road salt.
The fraction of greenSand road salt falls into the same category as the known de-icing agents (same grain size). This means that spreading does not increase the risk for cars/people/road surface or other external factors. And the effectiveness of the de-icing agent remains the same or even improves. The skid resistance compared to the known de-icing agent/road salt is higher and this has a positive effect in the event of black ice or freezing of wet road sections, for example. Due to the natural effect of greenSand road salt, the user is less bothered by green deposits and weed growth in joints of, for example, clinker roads. In addition, roadsides and trees experience less acidification due to the presence of silica and magnesium.
The first orders have been delivered today. greenSand will also work for the private market. We expect to be able to deliver the first bags of greenSand road salt in the third week of January.
