By Lee Enterprises Consulting | April 05, 2013

Lee Enterprises Consulting of Little Rock, Ark., the world’s largest alternative and renewable fuel consulting group, is pleased to announce the formation of a strategic alliance with ICM Inc. of Colwich, Kan. Established in 1995 and headquartered in Colwich, ICM is a leading ethanol technology provider in the U.S. ethanol industry with patented and patent-pending technologies. The company’s proprietary licensed equipment and processes are currently used in the majority of U.S. ethanol plants, and the company continues to be a leader in developing new processes and expansion into other renewable energy industries.  ICM recently developed its proprietary patent-pending Generation 1.5 Integrated Fiber to Cellulosic Ethanol Technology for the production of cellulosic ethanol.

ICM’s Director of Sales and Product Management Brock Beach will serve as ICM’s liaison to the consulting group. “As ICM continues to expand our presence into other alternative fuels, we are delighted to work with Lee Enterprises Consulting,” says Beach.  He notes the new alliance allows the immediate pursuit of discussions with respect to projects combining various types of alternative and renewable fuels.

Wayne Lee, principle owner of Lee Enterprises Consulting, is equally pleased with the business announcement. “We continually seek alliances with the top companies to further our ability to fully serve every alternative and renewable fuels industry client,” says Lee.  “As a leading biofuels and technology provider, ICM has been involved with the global development of 102 ethanol facilities, representing 6.6 billion gallons of annual ethanol production.” Lee notes that ICM has also focused its innovation efforts on cellulosic ethanol and gasification technologies. “In addition to having the best ethanol, cellulosic ethanol and gasification partner available, I think our collaboration will also open the door to many combination projects, so I am very excited to work with ICM,” continued Lee.
