Ezi-Melt and the environment

Ezi-Melt white de-icing salt originates from the purest sustainable source - the sea.

The great thing about marine salt production is that, unlike with rock salt, there is no mining involved and therefore none of the negative environmental impact. In fact marine salt production is an ancient industry, with archaeological evidence of saltworks over 8,000 years old in Romania and China.


The process is relatively simple: sea water is placed in salt lakes, where natural evaporation of the water can occur. During the evaporation phase, the raw salt attracts wildlife including brine shrimp, one of the mainstays of the pink flamingo's diet.

After this evaporation stage, the salt is then moved to special bays where it stays for up to five years to allow it to crystallise. Small amounts of water are added periodically to increase the concentration of the salt.

The salt is then washed to remove any impurities, before the natural anti-caking agent is added to prevent clumping of the white crystals.


The product's purity and lack of additives means that it doesn't leave any harmful or unsightly residues behind, and there has been no adverse effect as a result of the product entering waterways following a thaw.
