TPC Bracing for Strong Presence in Polymer Market

TEHRAN (Shana) -- Tabriz Petrochemical Company (TPC) has launched a polypropylene unit with an annual capacity of 30,000 tons with $20 million of investment, which will undoubtedly increase the company’s weight in the world of polymer competition.

According to National Petrochemical Company (NPC), Siavash Derfashi, the CEO of TPC, stated that the history of Tabriz Petrochemical Company will soon record fruitful days in the polypropylene unit. The existence of all the ups and downs will increase the power of TPC in the world of polymer competition, and the launch of the polypropylene unit will result in product variety and an increase in customers for sure.

He added: “The high value-added resulting from the conversion of propylene to polypropylene and the presence of excess propylene feedstock in the complex prompted TPC to develop a project with a capacity of 30,000 tons of polypropylene per year in 2018. The company then signed an EP+C contract with two Chinese companies for detailed basic engineering and procurement.”

The TPC CEO continued: “The polypropylene production process in this unit is batch bulk polymerization and its product is polypropylene powder of homopolymer type and grades with application in injection, cable coating, pipes and fibers.”

Derfashi continued: “The advantages of this technology compared to the continuous process include lower investment, flexible operation, and lower feedstock quality requirements.”
