Plant Saves over Rls.5,000b by Reviving Key Catalyst

TEHRAN (Shana) -- The operation of reviving the palladium catalyst of Phase 2 of Shahid Tondgouyan Petrochemical Plant saved the company over Rls. 5,000 billion.

According to the facility, the Japanese company NECC, which under the license of BASF, produced carbon-based palladium catalysts for Shahid Tondgouyan Petrochemical Company stopped supplying the item under the pretext of Western sanctions against Iran.

This is while Shahid Tondgouyan Petrochemical Company is the only supplier of PET/PTA in Iran.

By design, the plant needs 14 tons of palladium catalysts to produce the item and the catalyst must be replaced after producing every 700,000 tons of the item, but due to the embargo and lack of supply of the catalyst needed, Shahid Tondgouyan Petrochemical Company’s engineers developed a new method to revived the catalyst which is unique in its kind. Likewise, they were able to produce more than one million and 870 thousand tons of the PET/PTA with the same catalyst.

By doing so, at least €12.5 million was saved by supplying the palladium catalyst of Phase 2 of Shahid Tondgouyan Petrochemical Complex.
