Staff Accomplishments

John Frye Received R&D 100 Award for Degradable Deicer

September 2004
ETD's John Frye received an R&D 100 award for his work on D3: Degradable by Design DeicerTM. Created by researchers at PNNL and Battelle, the deicer is composed of a family of non-toxic, biodegradable fluids used to remove and prevent the formation of ice on military and commercial aircrafts, runways, and roadways. The D3 has less environmental impact, is much less corrosive and is less toxic than existing deicers. Congratulations, John!
