HOUSTON (ICIS)-- US based ethanol producer Archer Daniels Midland is increasing production of industrial alcohol at its Clinton, Iowa, corn processing complex, the company said in a statement.

"We’ve already increased production at our Peoria, Illinois, facility to help address the continued growing need for industrial alcohol, and adding additional capacity at our Clinton facility will help us continue to deliver the supply our customers need.”

The new industrial alcohol capacity will be available on an on-demand basis, according to the statement.

Ethanol is used as a gasoline blendstock, in pharmaceuticals, and in food and beverage applications, such as hand sanitizers and vodka.
