Iran Bracing for Self-Sufficiency in Urea, Ammonia Catalysts

TEHRAN (Shana) -- The CEO of Hengam Petrochemical Company said the plant has signed deals with Iranian catalyst providers for the supply of the catalysts needed for production of urea and ammonia which will render the country self-sufficient in supply of the items.

According to National Petrochemical Company (NPC), Alireza Javanmardi said by implementing the deals, the country would no longer need to import the items.

Speaking to reporters, he said 8 catalysts are used for production of urea and ammonia products, of which seven catalysts have been localized so far.

Announcing that a memorandum of understanding has been signed for production of the last catalyst for urea and ammonia units, he expressed hope that Iran would soon join the club of the producers of "ammonia synthesis" catalysts.

“By making this catalyst, the collection of catalysts used in the urea and ammonia chain will become Iranian and we will no longer need to import the catalysts used in this chain,” he said.
