Why We Need YOUR Help?
The coronavirus pandemic has had far-reaching consequences beyond the spread of the disease and efforts to quarantine it. As the pandemic has spread around the globe, concerns have shifted from supply-side manufacturing issues to decreased businesses in the services sector.
We want to repurpose our distillery and warehouse facility for the production of the W.H.O version Hand Sanitiser to help with Covid-19 pandemic. We are within a 3 mile radius of the Nightingale Hospital to help with growing crisis. We can deﬁnitely impact in the healthcare service and the public as there is a shortage of PPE including Hand Sanitisation.
We want to build a continuous distillation and blending apparatus that will help us produce hand sanitiser continuously. This will reduce the cost and lead us to support the frontline services to protect themselves. Alcohol is used to make hand sanitiser, and due to demand alcohol price has sky- rocketed, making sanitiser expensive as well. The way to address this issue will be to start from base, create alcohol. We aim to produce 500L a week of Neutral spirit which will denature 80% ABV and the end product will be hand sanitiser, the support we will need is to be able to employee additional staff to help with the ﬁnish process.
How You Can Help Us Fight The Pandemic Of Covid-19!
By donating to the fund it will be used in building the continuous distillation and blending apparatus that will help us produce hand sanitiser continuously. This will reduce the cost and lead us to support the frontline services to protect themselves.
The design and manufacture of the equipment will cost £75,000. The plan is to phase the build to support the existing equipment and new technology block by block, as an upgrade to the system. In this way the fund is effectively used and we can deliver product from the start, and slowly increase the delivery. This will also help our distribution team to adapt to the volume and demand.
We have completed building a prototype equipment to test proof of principle, and we have positive results. Our endeavour is to address the demand of hand sanitiser and its affordability due to ever-increasing price of active raw materials , i.e., alcohol. We are managing risks by reducing it.
