This report describes results obtained from the field evaluation of Ice Ban as a liquid anti-icing and deicing agent during the 1996-1997 winter season. Ice Ban is the concentrated liquid residue of the fermentation and distillation of alcohols (ethanol) and the processing of corn and other agricultural products. Ice Ban can be applied as a liquid anti-icing or deicing agent and as a road salt or sand pretreating agent.
