Cargill says demand for denatured ethanol in Europe, used in hand sanitizer, doubled

NEW YORK, March 9 (Reuters) - Cargill said on Monday that demand for its denatured ethanol in Europe, a product that can be used in hand sanitizer, has doubled since last month.

The spike comes as demand for hand sanitizer has surged with the global outbreak of the coronavirus. More than 110,000 people have been infected in 105 countries and territories and 3,800 have died, the vast majority in mainland China, according to a Reuters tally. (Reporting by Stephanie Kelly)
