Xianming Shi’s work on “Green” Deicers featured in Washington State University Magazine
CESTiCC assistant director Xianming Shi’s extensive work on creating bio-based, sustainable deicers and anti-icers was recently featured in the Washington State University Magazine. The article highlights the challenges associated with using salt as the primary deicer in the US and some of the potential benefits of using more environmentally sustainable materials, such as apple skins, peony leaves, and Kentucky bluegrass instead. The work referenced in this article is closely connected to a recently completed CESTiCC project.
