Our Story

ICE was founded in 2016 by Zoe Coull to address the corrosion gap in industry and the need for more efficient corrosion risk-management solutions. 

While listening to an industry speaker in an undergraduate lecture at the age of 17, Zoe realised the extent to which corrosion could affect people’s safety, the environment and business viability. It was the link she sought between her love of science and a quest to save the world! Zoe has worked in corrosion since then.

  • At ICE, our mission is to improve the way clients manage corrosion risk. At the same time, we seek to promote and uphold the highest standards of environmental policy and practice.
  • We work with mining and infrastructure clients worldwide. Our projects range from the small and straightforward, to the large and more complex.
  • We believe in the value of long-term partnerships with our clients, many of whom we’ve worked with since inception.

The Team – break the ICE

Dr. Zoe Coull, is re-imagining how clients deal with business and environmental risk through the long term sustainability of assets and operations. As CEO of ICE Dragon Corrosion, Dr. Coull is the innovative force behind changing the mining industry by protecting and preventing against corrosion and the associated operational and environmental impacts.

As a successful and evolving start-up, Zoe has developed ICE Dragon into an global services firm with clientele and projects across continents. Her expertise and specialization in materials and corrosion specialist have influenced the design and rehabilitation of a wide variety of assets across the globe. 

Her pioneering leadership has led Zoe to take on the development of mining industry standards to properly structure and ensure governance of corrosion control. Resulting industry impacts include; establishment of quantifiable key performance indicators; increased awareness and visibility of associated risks with asset degradation for management planning; allowance for optimized asset performance & realized cost savings; and, improving environmental sustainability and safety stewardship.

She is also active in the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE), currently Chairing a new technical focus group on Corrosion in Mining that she initiated in 2017. 

Zoe earned her PhD from the University of Toronto after completing her bachelor’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering at Imperial College and Master’s degree in Corrosion Engineering at the University of Manchester.
