Iran to Double Melamine Crystal Output by Launching Lordegan Petrochem Project

TEHRAN (Shana) -- Iran's "Melamine Crystal" production capacity will double with the issuance of a permission for construction of Lordegan Petrochemical Development Project.

According to the National Petrochemical Company (NPC), completing the value chain has always been one of NPC’s plans and policies, as the NPC CEO told a news conference last week that no more permissions would be issued for construction of methanol and urea projects in the country, announcing implementation of various projects aimed at completing the methane and ammonia value chains in the petrochemical industry.

In line with this approach, a new permit has been issued to build a melamine crystal production project to complete the methane chain, and the Iranian Petrochemical Investment Group (Petrol) recently announced the construction of a 20,000-ton melamine crystal project alongside Lordegan urea and ammonia plant.

Currently, Khorasan Petrochemical Plant and then Urmia Plant are the largest and only producers of "Melamine Crystal" in Iran, and if the Lordegan melamine crystal project is built, the production capacity of this petrochemical product will double.

Melamine crystal is a popular and widely used product in the wood, paper, paint, leather, textile, molding, adhesive, rubber, etc. industries, and countries such as Turkey, India and China are among the customers of this petrochemical item.
