Mizzou Engineering, MU Extension team up to help fight spread of COVID-19 on campus

  • Published: Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2020

Tiger Paw Hand Sanitizer, created by Mizzou Engineering, is available for purchase on MU Extension’s website by MU departments with a MoCode.

The sanitizer, which can be delivered safely through campus mail, is available in 1-liter spray bottles and half-gallon refill containers. If the purchaser’s account is not set up for MoCode billing, contact Deb Taylor at [email protected] or 573-882-7216.

Tiger Paw is an FDA-approved, ethanol-based formula created by Mizzou College of Engineering professor Bill Buttlar and his team. Ethanol was hard to come by early on when the formula was being developed for widespread use. However, the Missouri Corn Growers Association helped Buttlar’s team connect with biorefineries in Missouri to obtain a substantial and continual supply of high-quality ethanol.

The MU Hacking COVID-19 Task Force identified the hand sanitizer project as one way to help keep the Mizzou community safer. It is currently used by Mizzou Athletics, MU Health Care and other on-campus entities.
