Carbon Green BioEnergy, Iroquois BioEnergy license ICM’s Advanced Selective Milling Technology V2

May 28, 2017 |

In Kansas, ICM’s patented Selective Milling Technology V2 was selected by Carbon Green BioEnergy in Lake Odessa, Michigan and Iroquois BioEnergy in Rensselaer, Indiana. These two 55 MGPY production facilities are scheduled to be the first commercial scale adopters of ICM’s new advanced designed SMT V2.

SMT V2 is a platform technology that frees more starch critical for enzyme conversion to sugar by selectively targeting and flaking larger starch particles into smaller ones; separating starch away from fiber, protein, or fats.

Advancements in this technology provide a significant decrease in the electrical load requirement, same production yields and new opportunities for improved operations in the plant. SMT V2 allows plants to produce increases of up to 3% ethanol yield and up to 15% distiller’s oil recovery, and ultimately, increased revenues. Now with this technological advancement, ICM’s new design provides up to a 50% reduction in horsepower, while providing an opportunity to dramatically change the grind profile and to reduce suspended solids throughout the plant.

Mitch Miller, General Manager for Carbon Green BioEnergy remarked, “We at NUVU Fuels are excited for the prospects this technology will afford us at both facilities.  The ethanol yield increase and corn oil increase along with the enhanced front end stability fit nicely with our ongoing improvement efforts.”

Brock Beach, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for ICM, Inc., said, “ICM is pleased to help NUVU Fuels take advantage of the benefits that SMT V2™ provides to plants. We appreciate NUVU Fuels confidence in ICM and look forward to working with them on their goals at Carbon Green BioEnergy and Iroquois BioEnergy.” Beach continued, “ICM is committed to offering solutions that consider the entire business picture of our customers.”
