Using Calcium chloride in order to melt snow
Question: The magic salt

During the winter a lot of snow falls in Beit Jann, which causes the roads to get blocked.

We can melt snow on roads and roadsides with various salts, but the best and the most efficient for this purpose is: calcium chloride.
The operating principle: within minutes, the calcium chloride absorbs moisture from the ice or the snow, causing lowering the freezing point of the aqueous solution created. In the process, the bond between ice and sidewalk tiles is broken, and the melting of the snow and ice begins.
