Leipsic biorefinery to make hand sanitizer


LEIPSIC — POET Biorefinery will manufacture industrial and beverage-grade alcohol at its Leipsic refinery as demand for hand sanitizer and other alcohol-based products soars.

“Our company has always been well poised to quickly make process adjustments in order to meet evolving demand,” POET Chief Commercial Officer Bob Casper said in a statement. “POET worked around the clock in order to modify our operations and supply frontline workers with high-quality sanitizer in a time of great need, and scaling up our industrial alcohol production presents an opportunity for us to continue to live our mission and produce another environmentally friendly product that consumers are asking for.”

The company’s Alexandria, Indiana, biorefinery will be used for alcohol production as well.
