Deliveries of INEOS hand sanitiser have begun in Belgium, with Team INEOS continuing to provide distribution and logistical support.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe, founder and chairman of INEOS, said: "Getting the hand sanitiser into production in just ten days was a huge team effort and Team INEOS, led by Sir Dave Brailsford, has made a major contribution alongside the rest of the INEOS family. We knew that there was a huge shortage of hand sanitiser in Europe and that speed was crucial. We believe the hand sanitiser from INEOS will play an important role in the fight against the virus, helping to protect primary hospital staff and vulnerable people across the country. We are also committed to doing our part in the fight against coronavirus in Belgium, where INEOS was born and where we have important production sites."
INEOS produces chemicals that are used in antibiotics, paracetamol, anti-inflammatories, antivirals, aspirin and the reagent chemicals used in test kits. Their plastics can be found in medical equipment, face masks, fans, sterile gloves and face shields. Acetonitrile from INEOS is used in key pharmaceutical analyses in the search for an effective vaccine.
