Tereos provides 20,000 liters of 70% liquid alcohol to fight coronavirus

Tereos announced the donation of 20 thousand liters of 70% liquid alcohol to SUS hospitals and service stations in the municipalities where the Group’s sugar, ethanol and bioenergy industrial units are located, in the northwest region of the state of São Paulo. The initiative aims to collaborate with the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. 20,000 liters of 70% liquid alcohol will be donated. The Company started producing 70% hydrated alcohol, which will be made available in 1,000 liter containers for hospitals and 25 liters for service stations. Among the institutions that will receive the donation are: the Base Hospital, in São José do Rio Preto; the Hospital do Amor, in Barretos; the Santas Casas de Barretos, Bebedouro, Cajobi, Colina, Guaíra, Guaraci, Olímpia, Pitangueiras, São José do Rio Preto and Tanabi; and the health departments of Guapiaçu, São José do Rio Preto, Severínia, Tabapuã and Viradouro. The substance in liquid state is recommended for sanitizing and cleaning environments in hospitals and health units. Unlike gel alcohol, the liquid substance is not recommended for individual use, as it does not contain emollients, it can dry out and irritate the skin. The Group’s units in France will also donate the product. “We at Tereos are committed to the communities where we operate. In such a critical moment like this, we are proud to be able to contribute to our production of alcohol 70 in order to support the tireless work of health professionals ”, said Jacyr Costa Filho, member of the Executive Committee of the Tereos Group. Tereos’ five plants in France are also engaged in the solidarity campaign against the coronavirus and will manufacture alcohol gel and donate all manufactured products to French health agencies.
