Team MELTS is a 4-year undergraduate research project sponsored by UMD's Gemstone Honors Program. Road salts, though beneficial for melting ice and clearing roadways, can have a variety of negative impacts on the environment, infrastructure, and water supply.
Our team is researching agro-based/chlorid
e-free products in order to develop a more environmentally friendly anti-icer. Over the course of our LaunchUMD campaign which ends May 11th, we hope to raise $4500 for our project. This money will help us purchase supplies and materials to complete our testing, as well as cover any travel expenses. Our research would not be possible without this money, so we appreciate any donation that you can make. Thank you! https://www.launch.umd.edu /project/5982
