Curb the spread of COVID-19 by production of affordable high quality sanitizers and antiseptics
The innovation is the manufacturing of ethyl-alcohol based sanitizers and antiseptics to replace
the existing imported similar products on the Rwandan market which are mainly isopropyl
alcohol based. Ethyl based sanitizers and antiseptics are simple to manufacture and requiring
less energy, simple machinery and leaving low carbon footprint.
- The plan is to establish a production facility in Rwanda and start the production of sanitizers and antiseptics in
the form of raw 70% alcohol by volume ethyl alcohol together with its other gel and organic oil
added derivatives. These products are used in medicine to kill 99% of germs (including
bacteria, viruses, etc.) which are the causes of many communicable diseases, and the
demand for these products has skyrocketed recently around the world due to the COVID-19
What is the need are you focusing on?
-we are focusing to the lack of affordable sanitizers and antiseptics on the Rwandan market.
- 100% of our innovation manufacturing process will use cheap raw materials that are found
locally here in Rwanda. This will eliminate foreign imported products from the whole process, it
will lower the manufacturing cost and it will reduce the market prices and increase the impact
of our products on the local market.
- In Rwanda the majority of our people have a purchasing power parity under 2 USD , they cannot afford expensive imported sanitizers , even small business owners can not afford to provide handsanitizers to customers or afford antiseptics to disinfect their working spaces due to higher prices and low market availability.
