Major new INEOS factory in Boro in 10 days for sanitiser
 
INEOS to build hand sanitiser plant near Middlesbrough in 10 days to make 1 million bottles per month

Tuesday, 24 March 2020
INEOS Group

It is clear that one of the major contagion pathways for the Corona virus is hand to mouth. Hand sanitisers prevent this.

INEOS will provide free issue product for hospitals

INEOS is Europe’s largest producer of the two key raw material needed for hospital grade hand sanitiser at its sites in Grangemouth, Scotland and in northern Germany. We produce almost 1 million tonnes.

There is a critical shortage of hand sanitisers across Europe.

INEOS will build a UK factory to produce 1 million bottles per month within 10 days and will replicate this in Germany.

The company expects to concentrate on meeting the needs of front line medical and care services as well as making the “pocket bottle” hand sanitisers for personal use for people across the UK and Europe

The company will supply hospitals, schools, places of work, pharmacies and supermarkets.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, founder and chairman of INEOS says, “It is becoming increasingly clear that hand to mouth infection is a significant cause of Corona virus contagion and INEOS is Europe’s largest manufacturer of the core ingredient of hand sanitiser. We will build two factories in the UK and Germany in 10 days to produce very substantial supplies.”

INEOS, one of the world’s largest manufacturing companies, has today announced plans to produce 1 million hand sanitisers per month to help with the European shortage. These will be produced according to World Health Organisation specifications and be specifically designed to kill bacteria and viruses.

INEOS is the leading European producer of the two key raw materials needed for sanitisers – isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and ethanol. The company is already running these plants flat out and have been diverting more of this product to essential medical use and will now build two new factories to make hand sanitiser from them.

INEOS intends to produce both standard and the increasingly popular “pocket bottle” hand sanitisers and is already talking to retail outlets across Europe. Supplies to NHS hospitals will be free of charge for the period of the crisis with the public being able to purchase bottles through retailers.

INEOS takes its corporate and social responsibilities extremely seriously, its products are essential to the production of essential healthcare products from rubber gloves, to PVC saline drips, syringes, ventilators, medical tubing. Its products purify the public drinking water. It produces raw materials for soap, acetone for aspirin and paracetamol, and its phenol is being used in pharmaceutical analysis essential in procedures necessary to find a vaccine.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, founder and chairman of INEOS adds, “INEOS is a company with enormous resources and manufacturing skills. If we can find other ways to help in the coronavirus battle, we are absolutely committed to playing our part”

Has to be an existing facility surely if they're opening in 10 days. We're not China, we can't knock up a new hospital in a week.

This is brilliant news for jobs in the region, god knows we need it, and the wider effort against Covid. I wonder how many people they will hire, anyone have any idea?

They must be incredibly confident of offering PPE and health guarantees for workers to be taking on so many new people at a time like this.

I used to work at the Hydropolymers plant at Newton Aycliffe, which is now Ineos. Im guessing they are going to produce it there, they've certainly got everything in place.

Wonder how long after the virus dies down it will shut down? If it was me I'd keep producing and stockpiling for future pandemics, same with ventilators, PPE and testing kits etc...cant relax and say that's it, it wont happen again attitude. Need a worldwide taskforce and coordinated response, the whole world is in this together.
