ICM incorporated has been awarded $25 million from the US department of energy to build a pilot-scale plant inside the lifelines foods plant in St. Joseph. The 5-year pilot project will experiment with corn fibers, switchgrass, and energy sorghum to try and discover the best way to create ethanol biofuel. ICM's technical director Dr. Scott Kohl says if the Missouri experiment is successful, it could have national implications. The experimental plant will employ at least 20 people full time and will try to pull from regional companies during its one-year construction.
