Austria: Austrian Agricultural Processor AGRANA Starts Disinfectants Production Based on Bioethanol

Commodities

The shortage of disinfectants, caused by the Covid 19 (“Coronavirus”) crisis, triggered the use of AGRANA’s bioethanol for surface and hand disinfectants. AGRANA is an internationally-oriented important Austrian industrial company which processes agricultural commodities to create food, feed, and intermediate industrial products. AGRANA is not only supplying its bioethanol to the disinfectants producing industry but also started its own production in one of their Austrian fruit juice plants. AGRANA’s bioethanol has only recently been approved for disinfectant use. In the course of the Covid 19 crisis, the Austrian government issued and exemption from the alcohol tax for alcohol (including bioethanol) used in disinfectants.
