WHO ARE WE? WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT? WHY ECOGRIT CONCENTRATE FOR ICE MELTING?

WHO ARE WE?

EcoGritis is an environmentally conscious company that would like to serve the people by offering them education, insight, “peace of mind”, and the chance to make a positive difference on a monumental scale when winter weather patterns are becoming more unpredictable.

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

UK becomes first major economy to pass net zero emissions law

The aim is to slow Global Warming. The problem a country like ours faces is it becomes colder in the winter. We can barely cope now when the ice and snow arrive, even in short spells. We have never created a proper product to help in these situations as they didn’t arise so often. We were more than happy to use rock salt as it works to -6C and is readily available and cheap. We have always overlooked the fact that this product is damaging to our environment and super corrosive to anything it contacts because we didn’t use it that often in the past.

Times are changing, and we need to
change with them.

AT PRESENT

Areas where rock salt is used most is quite evident. Potholes are in abundance, and the whole road surface is starting to fall apart. The government recognises and accepts an overall deterioration of 3% annually to our roads from this. At this rate, we don’t have the workforce to fix the entire network of existing potholes in 12 months.

We now have the technology which the government passed in 2019, thermal road repairs. Even if we fixed all the potholes permanently (trying to fix all the potholes in 12 months would cause massive delays to commuters and traffic), we would still have a problem with the deterioration of the road surface.

ROUND THE CORNER

As we push to reduce our CO2 emissions, the winters will get harsher. If we continue to throw more rock salt at the problem, we WILL accelerate our roads and infrastructure deterioration. Our road network will struggle to cope with ever-increasing vehicles, and roads will quickly crumble.

An option on the market at the moment is urea. Many products claiming to be pet-friendly and environment-friendly are just 100% urea. This product hasn’t been designed for this purpose and, if used on a large scale, will cause us an environmental nightmare (toxic algae blooms).

AT OUR HOMES

In many areas around the country, people are being forced to use deicing and rock salt to keep their driveways and paths clear. This isn’t an ideal solution because it risks pets, the garden, and the home. We don’t want to destroy our property just so we can access it, but that is what’s happening. As the temperature changes, it will become a problem for more and more people. The more we have to use rock salt, the quicker we deteriorate our homes. People in hilly areas or homes that have driveways on a slope need to keep these areas ice-free to allow access in and out of the property as well as to prevent vehicles from sliding when they are parked.

As temperatures drop, this will be a growing problem as we go forward, as many people have vehicles under contracts where they swap vehicles every couple of years. When you swap, you often have to pay for any damage to the vehicle, which can be costly. If your vehicle slides overnight and causes damage to itself or others then it is you footing the bill.

ROCK SALT

  • Rock salt, which is the main thing used for gritting our roads and car parks, is mined from deep in the ground and contains toxins and heavy metals. We throw this in great quantities (over 2 000 000 tons annually) all over the country.

  • After it has started to eat away at our roads (tarmac [asphalt], concrete), causing deterioration and potholes, it gets washed away down the drains. While damaging everything it contacts until it ends up back in the watercourse, causing problems for the aquatic creatures and anything linked to the water.

  • Rock salt only works down to -6 Centigrade before freezing and becoming useless. Random weather patterns across the UK are bringing much lower temperatures.

  • Many vehicles that use our roads rust from underneath because of the rock salt put down in the winter, making Ecogrit an excellent rock salt alternative.

Ecogrit Concentrate is here to offer a solution and a chance to start
to change things for the better.
