Privacy Policy

What kind of information does ICM, Inc., collect?

Personally Identifiable Information Collection and Use

This Website only collects personally identifiable information from you if you choose to provide this information to us. Examples of personally identifiable information collected with your consent include name, e-mail address, information on an employment application or resume, or any inquiries you may make through our Website. ICM, Inc., will not disclose this information to any third party. The following are the uses we make of such personally identifiable information.

  1. We review your potential suitability for an available career opportunity. Any information submitted by persons seeking employment will be forwarded to the Human Resources Department of ICM, Inc., and will be retained for six months. It will not be used for any other purpose.
  2. If you provide information regarding facility-related problems or concerns, we will forward that information to the appropriate ICM, Inc., employees and/or sub-contractors responsible for responding to your inquiry, so they may accurately respond to your inquiry. We will retain such information indefinitely.
  3. We also may use the information we collect from our inquiry forms to develop a database of frequently asked questions. While we reserve the right to use any general information you submit, (i.e. problems with belts on a specific piece of machinery) for this database, we will not store such information with any personally identifiable information about either you or the facility you are referencing. Upon future cataloging and publication of this information into a searchable database on our Website, neither the person submitting the inquiry nor the facility referenced in the inquiry will be identified.
  4. If required by law to do so, we will disclose personally identifiable information in response to a Court order, warrant, or other comparable legal instrument with which our legal advisors direct us to comply.
  5. From time to time, ICM, Inc., will outsource certain services relating to the operation of Website functions. For example, we may hire a programmer to add new capabilities to our Website. In this case, we may be required to permit the service provider access to information you supply online in order to properly manage our Website. We will require that the service provider acting on our behalf abides by our Privacy Policy and institutes safeguards to protect the confidentiality of your personally identifiable information.



Cookies are small pieces of data that are saved on your computer’s hard drive by your Internet browser. This Website does not currently use cookies. Future Website development may, however, require the use of cookies. Our Privacy Policy will be updated if and when that change takes place.

Non-personally identifiable information

This Website also may collect information from you that is not personally identifiable. We may record information about your visit to the site without recording any personal information. For example, our Web server monitors our Website traffic and develops certain statistics, including the number of Website visitors, pages most frequently accessed, and the browser type used to access our Website.

How will ICM, Inc., use the information it collects?

The information collected by this Website is used only for replying to your inquiries, for creating a database of information to better serve our customers, for processing employment application information, and for the administration, review, and improvement of our Website.

You agree that by providing your e-mail address in our inquiry forms, ICM, Inc., may contact you in response to your comments or inquiries, or to proceed with steps necessary in the pre-employment process. If you decide that you do not want to receive further e-mails regarding your inquiry from ICM, Inc., you may reply to our e-mail and ask us to remove you from our contact list, or you may call 316-977-6118 and ask to be removed.

Will ICM, Inc., sell my information?

ICM, Inc., respects your privacy and does not and will never sell, rent, or lease any personally identifiable information to any third party.
Is my personally identifiable information secure?

ICM, Inc., takes the security of your personally identifiable information very seriously. We have taken significant precautions to provide secure transmission through our server. In the event we request or transmit sensitive information, we use industry standard, secure socket layer ("SSL") encryption.

We strictly limit access of personally identifiable information to only those ICM, Inc., employees who need the information in order to carry out their job responsibilities or to answer your inquiries. All secure information is stored in an area where only our Web Master and our IT Manager have access. Information received is processed in two ways. If the information relates to an application for employment, it is forwarded to our Human Resources department, which is responsible for it from that point forward. If the information is an inquiry, it is forwarded to the person/department most capable of responding. The question and the response are then sent back to the Web Master, who catalogs them on our secure server and forwards the information back to you.

Will ICM, Inc., change the privacy policy?

ICM, Inc., reserves the right to change, alter, or amend this Privacy Policy at any time, and such changes will be posted on this page. Your continued use of our Website signifies your agreement to both our Website’s Privacy Policy and our Terms & Conditions of Use.

Frequently Asked Questions

As a leader in the ethanol industry, ICM, Inc. strives to be a valuable resource for people seeking information about ethanol and the technology behind it. Below, we’ve compiled answers to the inquiries we receive most often. If you don’t find an answer here, please feel free to contact us for more information.


[ top of page ]

Q. I want to build an ethanol plant. Who do I contact?

A. Our business development department can answer your initial questions and will work with you to determine if we’re able to meet your needs.


Q. Does ICM support its plants after they’re built?

A. ICM is committed to keeping our plants up and running 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In fact, we even offer a Plant Support 24-hour HOTLINE (877-456-8588) exclusively for ICM customers.


Q. I want to purchase a dryer/thermal oxidizer. Who do I contact?

A. Someone from our dryer team will be glad to help you.


Q. I have heard there is an ethanol plant under construction in my community. Is ICM involved?

A. ICM is involved in about two out of three ethanol plants under construction across the United States as well as several international projects. Check out our Project Portfolio to see if your plant is listed.


Q. I want to provide services to ICM. What is your procedure to get on a bidder's list?

Q. Is ethanol OK for my car?

A. Not only is it OK, but ethanol fuel is actually good for your engine. E10 (a 10% ethanol blend) is warranted for use by every major automobile manufacturer, while E85 (an 85% ethanol blend) is for use exclusively in flex-fuel vehicles.


Ethanol Production

[ top of page ]

Q. Is discharge water from a wastewater utility feasible to use in ethanol production?

A. Occasionally, treated effluent can be used for cooling tower makeup, but it’s not recommended for the ethanol process. The makeup of discharged pollutants is important to consider, because some dissolved minerals can cause major fouling and/or corrosion issues within a system.


Q. I know ICM is the expert when it comes to cereal grain fermentation, but what about feedstock like sugarcane, potatoes, waste wood, and switch grass?

A. Currently ICM-designed plants utilize corn, wheat, or milo, and we are researching other materials. While there are several methods to make cellulosic conversion happen, none have been proven on a commercial scale. We are currently evaluating the different methods, as well as researching our own ideas.


Human Resources

[ top of page ]

Q. ICM sounds like a great place to work. How do I apply?

A. ICM is always looking for aggressive, creative thinkers who are excited by the challenges and rewards that innovation brings. Check out our Employment section.



[ top of page ]

Q. What does ICM stand for?

A. While many people think ICM is an acronym, it isn’t. We like to think that ICM stands for the first choice in designing, building, and supporting ethanol plants.


Q. How does ICM support the agricultural/ethanol industry?

A. ICM supports the agricultural industry in many ways. We design plants that increase the value of corn and support rural economies. For instance, our plants maintain low operating and maintenance costs while providing operator training and a process guarantee. ICM promotes the use of ethanol at the consumer level as a member of Growth Energy. We also keep ethanol producers up-to-date on technology that can make their plants more effective, efficient, and environmentally friendly. Our research and development team continues to look for more efficient ways to create ethanol. And, the ICM Environmental Compliance System compiles plant environmental data in a user-friendly format that helps plants monitor their compliance with all state and federal regulations. We even help re-start plants that have previously been shut down due to various problems.


Investment Opportunities

Q. How do I invest in ICM?

Logo Use
