Wed. Jan. 11, 2012, Veteran snow plower for Crystal Lake, Jim Bonney, fills his truck with GeoMelt in preparation to cover two routes with the anti-icing liquid. GeoMelt, made from the byproduct of sugar beets, works by lowering the freezing temperature of any standard de-icing product. Bonney already covered two routes Wednesday morning with the anti-icing liquid.
