U.S. Ethanol Industry Has Grown by Leaps and Bounds
The U.S. ethanol industry has grown from a handful of small plants producing 175 million gallons in 1980 to 210 plants in 27 states producing a record 16.1 billion gallons of ethanol in 2018. Today, we make up slightly more than 10 percent of the U.S. gasoline supply.

BIOFUEL- ETHANOL PROD DRYMILL

 

icminc.com/innovation

Ethanol is commercially produced using either a wet mill or dry mill process. Wet milling involves separating the grain kernel into its component parts (germ, fiber, protein, and starch) prior to fermentation. ICM-designed plants utilize the dry mill process, where the entire grain kernel is ground into flour. The starch in the flour is converted to ethanol during the fermentation process, creating carbon dioxide and distillers grain.  Read the details of each step>>
