At ICM, we understand the urgency to perfect the promise and process of converting cellulosic feedstocks to ethanol. That’s why over the past five years, ICM has conducted a broad scope of research and development in this area, ranging from the production of energy crops to innovations in process technology.
In 2011, ICM was awarded a $25 million federal grant from the Department of Energy. This—along with our staff of the industry’s premier scientists and Ph.D.s and our new state-of-the-art demonstration-scale facility—has helped to successfully prove our proprietary technology to process cellulosic feedstocks including switchgrass, sorghum, and corn fiber.
Now in its final phases of development, our cellulosic ethanol technology will be available on a commercial scale in the near future.
