CaCl2 is used in the production of road and paving materials. The offloaded sacks(?) also contain dry materials used in the processes. Anyone know the actual loads in these palletized sacks? These are being transported, perhaps to the Velevetop location on Grant Ave, Islip or another location for processing?
