ICM, Inc. Announces Advanced Oil System™

ICM, Inc. Announces Advanced Oil System™
Patent-Pending, Next-Generation Oil Separation Technology to be Deployed
 
(Colwich, Kan. – June 27, 2011) – ICM is pleased to announce that it has obtained signed contracts for the manufacture and installation of its patent-pending, next-generation Advanced Oil System™ (AOS™) at four plants.
 
About the technology: Currently, most oil extraction providers use a combination of centrifugation and chemical additives to extract corn oil; however, extraction rates can be limited by emulsification. ICM’s innovative AOS™ uses an inventive, emulsion breaking approach to deliver a much higher conversion rate than is currently possible with first-generation oil recovery technology. The Advanced Oil System™ consists of separate skid-mounted units that can be installed at plants without oil extraction technology, or a modified version of the technology can be installed at plants that have already invested in ICM’s first-generation oil separation equipment. ICM will be demonstrating this technology this Tuesday and Wednesday at the ethanol industry’s largest annual trade show and conference, the Fuel Ethanol Workshop, held in Indianapolis, Ind. Brock Beach, ICM Capital Sales Manager, said demonstrations will be scheduled to run every two hours during the conference.
 
Chris Mitchell, executive vice president of ICM said, “We’re thrilled to announce the deployment of our Advanced Oil System™ technology, and we’re eager to demonstrate how we’ve focused our efforts on creating solutions that deliver rapid payback and continuous value-added co-product streams for the renewable energy industry. We believe our competitive advantage comes from equipping our customers with the highest yielding and most efficient oil separation technology available.”
