sunocoEthanol plant engineering firm ICM, Inc. of Colwich, Kansas will be bringing Sunoco’s new ethanol plant in upstate New York up to new standards.

ICMSunoco bought the idled plant near Syracuse last summer with plans to supply ethanol for blending in the company’s retail gasoline network.

ICM president Dave Vander Griend is excited about the challenge. “ICM got its start by taking struggling plants designed by other companies and retrofitting them for efficient and profitable operation,” said Vander Griend. ICM has served as designer and process engineering firm for more than 100 dry-mill ethanol plants nationwide.
