• AMMONIUM BICARBONATE is used as an inexpensive nitrogen fertilizer, widely used in the plastic and rubber industry, the manufacture of ceramics, and chrome leather tanning.

• PROPYLENE GLYCOL is used as a solvent for food colors and flavorings. It is also found in medicines, hand sanitizers, antibacterial lotions, saline solutions, moisturizer, toothpaste, mouthwash, cosmetics, and in tobacco products such as electronic cigarettes to deliver vaporized nicotine.
