Domestic Production of Catalysts Saves Iran $70 m

TEHRAN (Shana) -- Domestic specialists succeeded in local production of ethylbenzene dehydrogenation to styrene and ammonia synthesis catalysts in Iran, which bring a total hard currency savings of 70 million dollars for the country.

For the first time, Smart Catalysts, an Iranian company, has succeeded in industrial production of one ton of ethylbenzene to styrene dehydrogenation catalyst and three tons of ammonia synthesis catalyst, said the company.

Ethylbenzene to styrene dehydrogenation catalyst is used in Pars and Tabriz petrochemical plants and ammonia synthesis catalyst is used in urea and ammonia producers such as Razi, Pardis, Khorasan, Hengam, Lordegan, Kermanshah and Masjed Soleiman petrochemical plants.

Production of ethylbenzene dehydrogenation catalyst to styrene will save $20 million and the ammonia synthesis catalyst saves the country $50 million and there is no need to import these catalysts.

The whole process of making ethylbenzene dehydrogenation catalyst to styrene and ammonia synthesis catalyst has been done based on local knowledge and the efforts of local researchers.
