repurposed a production line at its plant in Geneseo, NY, to manufacture 10,000 gallons – enough to fill 110,000 12 oz. bottles – of hand sanitizer solution.
This solution, made with the company’s own hydrogen peroxide, was donated to New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Texas, in which the company has key operations.
Brenntag and ExxonMobil helped make this possible.
Arkema Inc. made these donations to the New York State Office of Emergency Management, Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, Texas Division of Emergency Management and Tennessee Emergency Management Agency.
Arkema Inc. operates 13 sites in these states, contributing about $230 million to their local economies through payroll, utility and tax payments.
In addition to the U.S. initiative, Arkema Group and its subsidiary Bostik Australia have donated hand sanitizer to hospitals and healthcare facilities in France and Australia.
