INEOS has announced plans to build a UK factory within 10 days and produce 1 million hand sanitizers per month to help with the European shortage. The company is going to replicate that in Germany.


INEOS is the leading European producer of the two key raw materials needed for sanitizers – isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and ethanol. It is already running these plants flat out and has been diverting more of these products to essential medical use, and will now build two new factories to make hand sanitizer from them.

The company intends to produce both standard and the increasingly popular “pocket bottle” hand sanitizers 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.

The hand sanitizers will be produced according to World Health Organization specifications and be specifically designed to kill bacteria and viruses.


“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,” Sir Jim Ratcliffe, founder and chairman of INEOS said.
