Increased Corn Oil Productivity Pursued

14 February 2013

US - Bioethanol producer Abengoa Bioenergy has decided to add an oil separation system to two of its plants in the US.

The systems, to be supplied by ICM, will be deployed in Illinois and Indiana with the aim of maximising the recovery of non-food grade bio-oil from emulsion concentrate.

"We will collaborate with Abengoa to deliver corn oil extraction technology and support corn oil’s expansion into higher-value co-products. The investment in our technology affirms our shared vision of pursuing sustainable development efforts for the global renewable energy industry," said ICM director of sales Brock Beach.

Installation of the two corn oil extraction systems is expected to occur later this year.
