From corn fiber
to clean fuel

ICM’s patent-pending Generation 1.5 Grain Fiber to Cellulosic Ethanol Technology™ bolts onto your existing corn ethanol plant. With Gen 1.5, you can target fiber for conversion into low-carbon cellulosic ethanol. Gen 1.5 has already been proven in 15,000-gallon pilot fermentors and 585,000-gallon production fermentors in runs of up to 1,000 hours, and the first full-scale Gen 1.5 installation will be completed by the end of 2019. ICM’s Selective Milling Technology™, Fiber Separation Technology™ and Thin Stillage Solids Separation System™ serve as platforms for Gen 1.5 to deliver significant benefits.
