ICM to Install Corn Oil Separation Systems at IL and IN Abengoa Ethanol Plants

Date Posted: February 11, 2013

Colwich, KS—ICM, Inc. is pleased to announce that it has signed a contract with Abengoa Bioenergy for the Advanced Oil Separation™ System (AOS™) to be deployed at the company’s Madison, Illinois and Mt. Vernon, Indiana facilities.

ICM’s Advanced Oil Separation™ System (AOS™) is a specially-designed combination of equipment that utilizes an ICM-proprietary, patented process to maximize the recovery of non-food-grade bio-oil from emulsion concentrate after the centrifugal separation of mid-stillage (syrup).

Installation of the two corn oil extraction systems is expected to occur later this year.

ICM’s AOS™ will enable the recovery of a significant quantity of corn oil per bushel of corn processed, enabling the Madison and Mt. Vernon facilities to generate additional sources of revenue.

ICM Director of Sales & Product Management Brock Beach said, “We are thrilled to collaborate with Abengoa Bioenergy to deliver corn oil extraction technology and support corn oil’s expansion into higher-value co-products.

"The investment in our AOS™ technology affirms the shared vision of pursuing sustainable development efforts for the global renewable energy industry.”
