De-Icing Products That Contain Corn

Deicing Fluid
Environmentally Sustainable Deicing Fluid
The world’s first de-icing fluid produced from a 100% biological glycol is called DF Sustain and is made by UK-based, market-leader Kilfrost. One key ingredient is DFSustain is Susterra® propanediol, which replaces traditional crude oil in the glycol production process. We reveal how DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products created Susterra® from sustainable corn sugar sources, helping to manufacture a deicing fluid that works in extreme cold temperatures while simultaneously reducing energy usage and carbon emissions in its manufacture and operation.

Liquid Deicer
ProMelt Ultra - Liquid Deicer, Anti-Icing
ProMelt Ultra 1000 inhibited is a high performance de-icing liquid made from a refined corn carbohydrate derivative blended with magnesium chloride. It is a versatile anti-icing, de-icing and pre-wetting agent that delivers unparalleled performance in colder environments.

Safer Roadways
A sustainable solution for safer roadways (article)
In the mid-1990s, a new kind of deicing product appeared in the marketplace. Used in conjunction with a conventional deicer to lower the freezing temperature and prevent ice from forming, this new deicer was renewable: it was made from the corn sugars that are a byproduct of ethanol and alcohol production.

Liquid De-Icers
Liquid De-Icers
This blend of Caliber® de-icer with 30% MgCl2. Caliber® de-icer is derived from corn carbohydrates and is specifically engineered to enhance the eutectic point, anti-icing properties and viscosity of the MgCl2. Caliber® de-icer inhibits corrosion and suppresses crystal formation within the MgCl2.

De-Icing Roads
How It Works: Road salt and de-icing (article)
Sugar beets aren’t the only agricultural product to make their way to the asphalt. Some other options, either experimental or in use by some jurisdictions, include pickle juice, spent mash from beer or alcohol production, sugar cane juice, corn syrup and leftover salty brine from soft cheeses. We may never eliminate road salt entirely, but anything that cuts down on it is a welcome change.

Shrimp Shells used in Diabetes Products

Glucose Sensing Sponge Delivers Insulin Precisely When and Where Needed (article)
The researchers created a spherical, sponge-like matrix out of chitosan, a material found in shrimp and crab shells. Scattered throughout this matrix are smaller nanocapsules made of a porous polymer that contain glucose oxidase or catalase enzymes. The sponge-like matrix surrounds a reservoir that contains insulin. The entire matrix sphere is approximately 250 micrometers in diameter and can be injected into a patient.

Smart Sponge
Injectable 'smart sponge' controls diabetes, presents new targeted drug delivery method (article)
Take, for example, this new method developed by North Carolina State University researchers that uses injectable sponge to control blood sugar levels. No, it's not the same sponge you use to clean at home -- the material is made out of a substance taken from crab and shrimp shells called chitosan. This spongy material forms a matrix that's approximately 250 micrometers in diameter, where a rise in blood sugar causes a reaction in the pores that leads to the drug's release.

Diabetes Bandage (article)
University of Alabama team turning shrimp shells into high-tech bandages (article)
Gurau has teamed up with University of Alabama chemistry professor Robin Rogers, chemistry graduate student Leah Block and Whitney Hough to transform shrimp shells into an effective bandage for diabetes patients who develop limb-threatening sores.

Many studies suggest that shrimp shells are safe for people who are allergic to shrimp, however many people are still cautious. These products maybe dangerous for shrimp allergic people who are manufacturing the products.
