Turkey removed tariffs on ethyl alcohol imports amid coronavirus pandemic, announcing the decision in the Official Gazette on March 25.
The move aims to support production of disinfectant and cologne, traditional ethanol-based scented disinfectant in Turkey.
The tariff on bulk ethyl alcohol imports was 10 percent.
Greek authorities plan to turn tons of ethanol confiscated from bootleg booze-makers into sanitizer to combat the coronavirus epidemic.
Up to 155 tons of seized alcohol is languishing in customs warehouses across the country.
Authorities say they are trying to find manufacturers willing to convert it into antiseptics.
More than a third of Greek motorists drive while under the influence of alcohol, significantly above the European Union average, according to the Hellenic Society of Forensic Medicine.
Specifically, according to European Commission data, 35 percent of Greeks admit to driving after drinking alcohol, 10 percent more than the EU average of 25 percent.
