  • 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.

  • 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.
