MOL switched over a production line, which earlier made windshield cleaner fluid, to hand and surface sanitizer production in just two weeks, they said.
The plant is making around 50,000 liters of sanitizer a day in three shifts.
MOL Lub has already delivered the first volumes to hospitals, waste managers, public utilities and municipalities and is working to launch retail sales of the product as soon as possible.
MOL will also start making sanitizer products at its plants in Slovakia and Croatia, they added.
