For questions about deicing and anti-icing solutions, Cargill Deicing Technology presents “Ask Dr. Scott”
NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio. - Jan. 6, 2015 – For winter maintenance professionals there is no shortage of options when it comes to fighting snow and ice. As liquids continue to grow in popularity for both anti-icing and deicing, so does the need to analyze which product is the best fit. That is why Cargill Deicing Technology is offering expert advice from their Principal Research Scientist, Dr. Scott Koefod.
“Our goal in this industry has always been to be more than just a salt supplier. We strive to be a total solutions provider,” said AVP, Sales Manager Ken Howe. “Our Principal Research Scientist, Dr. Scott Koefod, has over 20 years of experience in the study and development of deicers and is very well respected by winter maintenance professionals. By offering his expertise in answering industry-specific questions we hope to help those decision-makers to select the product that best fits their needs, even if it is not supplied by Cargill.”
Winter maintenance professionals can visit the “Ask Dr. Scott” section of the Cargill Deicing Technology website to submit their inquiries directly to Cargill’s research scientist. Dr. Scott will post video responses in addition to written responses. Visitors can also follow him on Facebook and signup to receive monthly educational tidbits.
Dr. Scott Koefod has given several presentations relating to the science behind deicers at industry tradeshows and his events are always very well attended. He was the recipient of two awards: 2013 Best Paper Award for the Committee on Winter Maintenance presented by the Transportation Research Board of the National Academy of Science and 2014 Road Salt Symposium Environmental Leadership Award presented by the Freshwater Society and Fortin Consulting Inc.
“There are numerous misconceptions that are pretty common in deicing,” said Principal Research Scientist, Dr. Scott Koefod. “I have spent the better part of my career getting to the bottom of these myths and I’m excited to be given a platform to share my research to help people make smarter decisions when the winter weather hits.”
