Big Storm Brewing Co. has filed the required federal application to begin manufacturing ethanol. Approval will mean Big Storm will be able to begin making more than 100 gallons of commercially packaged hand sanitizer each day.
While the Clearwater-based company awaits approval of its application, Big Storm has begun the compounding a liquid-based hand sanitizer spray following World Health Organization standards.
“Our goal is to begin mass production of hand sanitizer to supply government agencies, hospitals, first responders and others,” said Big Storm co-owner L.J. Govoni. “This is a win-win, it allows us to retain employees while manufacturing a critical resource during this incredibly difficult time.”
Government agencies, hospitals, medical offices and others interested in hand sanitizer can contact Big Storm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Federal government is working diligently to expedite applications like the one filed by Big Storm.
