re: deicing alternatives

On January 15, Janet Warnick inquired about deicing alternatives.  
I obtained the following information today from the OPPT 
NEWSBREAK - I hope this helps (and I hope it works!):

Rich Dooley

"White River Junction, Vermont [Across the USA]." USA Today, 26
January 99, 13A.
     An environmentally friendly road deicer that looks like
     molasses is being tried by Vermont's state highway crews. 
     The deicer is made of magnesuim chloride and fermented
     grains.  Workers hope that it will last longer and cost less
     than the one currently used.
