Build a Liquids Program

Jumping into liquids is a decision that shouldn’t be made lightly. Learn factors that should be considered to determine whether adding liquids is your next move. This includes not only the business strategy but also the costs of implementation. We’ll also explore the common fail points that deter use. Attendees will receive a worksheet to perform a cost benefit analysis for their company.


Take It to the Next Level

Once you have liquid deicing and anti-icing down, should you add brine production to your operations? Plus we’ll explore additional ways to use liquids, including as a post-treatment and the use of non-chlorides.
