In this paper the environmental impact of traditional deicing chemicals is compared with that of calcium magnesium acetate (CMA), a deicer developed by the US Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to address the infrastructure and environmental degradation associated with the use of traditional deicing chemicals. Case studies are presented that demonstrate the effective incorporation of CMA into winter maintenance operations to provide safe winter highways in environmentally sensitive areas.
