Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara) and Sahara International Pertrochemical Company (Sipchem) are collaborating to produce a total of 100,000 kilograms of top-grade ethanol to use in hand sanitizers in efforts to meet Saudi Arabia’s demand for personal protective equipment and disinfectant agents for the healthcare sector. Local manufactures were provided ethanol at no cost in order to produce hand sanitizers, which will then be distributed to healthcare facilities through the Kingdom by the Ministry of Health. Last month, Sadara and Sipchem announced contributions of SAR 5 million ($1.3 million USD) and SAR 2 million ($533,000 USD) respectively to Saudi Arabia’s Health Endowment Fund to help tackle the impact of the pandemic and support frontline health workers.
