ICM Inc. has announced that it will implement its systems at the newest FS Bioenergia plant in Sorriso, Mato Grosso, Brazil.

FS Bioenergia will adopt ICM proprietary process technologies, including Selective Milling Technology (SMT), Fiber Separation Technology (FST), and Base Tricanter System (BTS).

FS Bioenergia broke ground on the new plant in mid-November and is scheduled to begin production in 2020. The new facility has a nameplate capacity of 630 m3/d.

In addition to the plant in Sorriso, FS Bioenergia will double the capacity of its first corn plant located in Lucas do Rio Verde. That plant has been using ICM’s technologies since its opening in June 2017 and is currently operating nearly 30% over nameplate. The start-up and commissioning of this expanded plant are anticipated for January 2019.

Upon completion of both plants, FS Bioenergia’s total corn capacity will surpass 1 billion l.
