A BRIEF HISTORY



  • Connector.

    1997

    Sears Environmental Applications Company (SEACO) introduces ICE BAN to the New England market. The original formula was a 50/50 blend of Brewers Condensed Solubles (BCS) and magnesium chloride. Also known as ICE BAN MAGIC, Ice Ban was the first byproduct blend de-icer on the market.

  • Connector.

    2000

    Name changed to ICE B’GONE after SEACO’s acquisition of the Hungarian “Toth” patent for Distillers Condensed Solubles (DCS) as an ice melting agent. New formula was typically a 50/50 blend of sugar cane molasses and magnesium chloride.

    2004

    Safe Road Services formed after SEACO exits the direct sales end of the business. Safe Road Services introduces another ICE BAN product which was a 50/50 blend of BCS and calcium chloride.

    2005

    Safe Road Services introduces forestry byproducts (ammonium lignin sulfonate – tree sap) in order to re-enter the dust control and soil stabilization business. These byproducts have a solid 100 plus year history as dust control and soil stabilization agents in the US and Europe. New product is called SAFE BIND®

    2006

    Safe Road Services begins experimenting with forestry byproducts as an ice melting agent after Anheuser Busch installed an anaeobic digester at its Merrimack, NH brewery. The digester converts the liquid byproduct (BCS) into carbon dioxide and methane. Anheuser Busch began using methane to fire its boilers at this location.

    2010

    Safe Road Services changes the name of its winter product from ICE BAN to SAFE MELT™.
