ICM, Inc.

ICM is a company on the leading edge of an exciting industry—one dedicated to realizing every benefit of biofuels technology. ICM takes pride in the fact that no other company`s equipment and proprietary technology are used in as many ethanol plants currently in operation throughout North America, than ICM`s. Backed by the most aggressive yield, energy, and emissions guarantees in the industry, these plants collectively produce 6.7 billion gallons of ethanol annually. Our equipment and processes are already used in the majority of U.S. ethanol plants, and we continue to develop processes to make ethanol production more efficient for our customers. ICM has also pioneered technology in power plants and grain processing facilities outside the ethanol industry, using our know-how to improve efficiencies across the entire biofuels spectrum—not just in the U.S., but around the globe.
