Green Plains to supply ethanol to Lysol manufacturer

August 13/2020

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Green Plains (Omaha, Nebraska) has signed a deal to supply high-grade ethanol through 2021 to consumer products manufacturer Reckitt Benckiser, which makes disinfectants under the Lysol brand, as per Chemweek.

"We are pleased to partner with Lysol to help fulfill their supply chain needs with our high-quality alcohol for products which are EPA approved for use against COVID-19," president and CEO Todd Becker says. "This transaction continues to validate the quality of our alcohol and our growing focus to provide a premium product at scale that can be used in sanitizers and disinfectants."

Ethanol supplied under the deal will come from Green Plains' York, Nebraska, plant, which was originally a beverage-grade facility.

"Our partnership with Green Plains continues to allow uninterrupted supply of our products to consumers," says Hal Ambuter, Reckitt Benckiser vice president/regulatory and government affairs.

As MRC informed earlier, Russia's output of chemical products rose in June 2020 by 2.6% year on year. However, production of basic chemicals increased year on year by 4.9% in the first six months of 2020. According to the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation, polymers in primary form accounted for the greatest increase in the output in January-June. Production of benzene was 106,000 tonnes in June 2020, compared to 110,000 tonnes a month earlier. Overall output of this product reached 721,000 tonnes over the stated period, up by 3.9% year on year.
