Abstract

The present invention relates to a novel deicing/anti-icing composition. The composition is formed by alkalinically degrading reducing sugars. The reducing sugars are preferably found in an industrial waste stream, such as corn steep water. The composition is inexpensive, biodegradeable, and nontoxic to the environment.
