TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- The first international conference on polyethylene value chain with focus on introducing new technologies, grades and business markets will be held on 3 and 4 October 2020.

This will be the first of a series of international conferences supervised by National Petrochemical Company (NPC) on value chain of petrochemical products.

The first value chain conference entitled "Polyethylene" will be held in 6 sections: domestic, regional and international markets, introduction of polyethylene chain technologies and complementary industries, competitive advantages of Iran and assessment of the industry’s leaders, and investment opportunities and challenges.

Since polyethylene is the largest member of the important family of polyolefins and the most commonly used plastics in the world and its supply and its demand is in the three grades of high density, low density and light linear grades, the need to develop the value chain of this valuable product is the basis for this conference.

Currently, the total polymer production capacity in the country is about 8.2 million tons per year, of which 4.8 million tons (60%) is allocated to polyethylene production. Among polyethylene types, high density polyethylene with 45% has the highest share in production and demand.

Iran's share in polyethylene production in the Middle East is 20% and in global markets 4%.
