Ethanol producer forced to find a new market — hand sanitizer

Ethanol prices have collapsed as gasoline demand dropped by half due to the special period shutdowns. “We produce about two billion gallons of ethanol per year,” says Jeff Broin, founder and CEO of POET, based in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.His company runs more than two dozen ethanol plants in the U.S., though currently three plants are closed, and 10% of his workforce is laid off.

However, in two plants, POET is doing something new. It has re-engineered systems to make pharmaceutical grade hand sanitizer. “I think the demand for hand sanitizer will increase over time, people need to stay safe.” Broin says.

During this special period, Wuxi Jianuo Intelligent Industry Technology Co., Ltd. as a manufacturer of hand sanitizer has grown a lot and received strong support from the Wuxi Cross-Border E-Commerce SME Chamber of Commerce. We can produce a large amount of disposable hand sanitizer and sell it at home and abroad, and promptly deliver it to customers in need.
