TEHRAN (Shana) -- The CEO of the National Petrochemical Company (NPC) announced the official inauguration of two plants for production of polypropylene and heavy polyethylene catalysts in a few weeks with the technical knowhow provided by the Petrochemical Research and Technology Company (PRTC).

According to NPC, Behzad Mohammadi visited Arak Center of the Petrochemical Research and Technology Company on Wednesday, and was briefed on the latest state of the polypropylene and heavy polyethylene catalyst units.

On the sidelines of the visit, he said that the strategy of the petrochemical industry is to produce catalysts required by the industry with Iranian technical savvy with the aim of reducing imports, adding: “Last year, the technical knowhow for the production of polypropylene from natural gas was unveiled at the Mahshahr Bureau of PRTC. It is based on this technical knowledge that the implementation of the GTPP project of Islamabad-West Petrochemical Plan has begun.”

The CEO of the National Petrochemical Company stressed the value of the ongoing projects in the three centers of Tehran, Arak and Mahshahr of PRTC for the petrochemical industry.

The two new catalyst plants will become operational in weeks, he added. The projects will make Iran self-sufficient in production of the items.
