ALCOGROUP will produce 35,000 liters of hydroalcoholic gel

The Belgian company ALCOGROUP is one of the European market leaders in the field of production and distribution of bioethanol. The company has decided to donate 35,000 liters of hydroalcoholic gel for free to Belgian hospitals that suffer a shortage.

CEO Charles-Albert Peers: “We make our group available to the care staff and Belgian citizens in order to contribute to the safety and health of everyone. On base from our existing ethanol stocks we can immediately produce hydroalcoholic gel which will be delivered to the hospitals in the coming days.”

ALCOGROUP also announces the conversion of the Ghent factory. This factory currently produces 250 million liters of bioethanol per year.  In this way the supply is guaranteed, the Belgian pharmaceutical sector can be supplied at cost and supply issues with this type of product are being tackled. To achieve this goal ALCOGROUP also made partnership agreements with other companies that produce handgels in Belgium.

As a fixed value within the Belgian industry, Alco specializes in production and distribution of bioethanol. Bioethanol is made from corn and is mainly used as biofuel, but also in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food sector. ALCO is constantly looking for sustainable solutions for the energy issue and today makes its production available to the health of all Belgians. For ALCO this is another way to profile yourself as “sustainable pioneer”.
