TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- The CEO of the National Petrochemical Company (NPC) said that two plants for production of polypropylene and heavy polyethylene catalysts would officially come online within the next few weeks.

During a visit to the Arak offshoot of the Petrochemical Research and Technology Company (PRTC) on Wednesday, Behzad Mohammadi was briefed on the latest state of the polypropylene and heavy polyethylene catalyst units.

The two units have been developed with the technical savvy provided by the PRTC.

On the sidelines of the visit, the NPC CEO 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.”

Mohammadi stressed the value of the ongoing projects in the three centers of Tehran, Arak and Mahshahr of PRTC for the petrochemical industry, saying the two new catalyst plants will become operational in weeks.

Once fully operational, the projects will make Iran self-sufficient in production of the items.
