The Red River Biorefinery (RRB) announced today that it has expanded production to supply ethanol that meets the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) purity and quality standards to the hand sanitizer market. To help meet the increase in global demand for hand sanitizer products due to COVID-19, RRB is now supplying hand sanitizer manufacturers with safe, high-quality ethanol products with one of the lowest carbon footprints available on the market today. It is extremely gratifying to have a local producer supplying safe ingredients for hand sanitizers while providing local jobs to support our communities. The Red River Biorefinery serves a vital role in the region's value-added agricultural, energy, and low carbon economies," said James Leiman, Director of Economic Development and Finance Division for the State of North Dakota.
