The Port Alberni-based technology company Coulson Ice Blast received a nod from Research and Development Magazine during their 55th annual awards show on Friday, Nov. 17 when Coulson’s IceStorm90 was recognized as one of the 100 most technologically significant new products of the year.

The R&D 100 Awards recognize the most promising new products, processes, materials or software developed throughout the world and introduced to the market in the previous year.

Coulson Ice Blast is a member of the family owned and operated Coulson Group of Companies, focusing on environmentally-friendly and cost-effective cleaning technology.

The IceStorm90 is a non-abrasive blasting machine that uses ice as the blasting media, resulting in a cleaning machine that uses significantly less water than a pressure washer. It can replace other commonly used cleaning methods and machines, including dry ice blasting, sand blasting and chemical cleaning.

In a Facebook post, Foster Coulson, vice president of Coulson Ice Blast, said, “To see the IceStorm90 get recognized as one of the top 100 most technologically significant products of 2017, and be surrounded by so many other innovative companies and organizations, is a real triumph and something we are extremely proud of.”
