March 27, 2020 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


Arkema has repurposed a production line at a site in France in order to manufacture, starting on 20 March, 20 tonnes/week of alcohol-based solutions.

The solutions will be distributed free of charge to hospitals in France, which urgently need disinfectants.

They will be supplied to French health authorities, and will be earmarked for the mass restocking of public hospitals.

The company has quickly obtained the necessary administrative authorisations for the move, it added.
