According to the Public Relations Office of Khorasan
Petrochemical Company, the launch ceremony was attended by Babak Afghahi, CEO
of the TAPPICO holding company, Ali Salajegheh, the Deputy President, and the
Head of the Environmental Protection Organization, along with officials from
North Khorasan province.
Afghahi, speaking at the event, praised the achievements of
the Khorasan Petrochemicals Complex, attributing its success to investments
made by various pension funds and stating its recent performance as a beacon of
hope for the region's development and employment opportunities in North
Khorasan and neighboring provinces.
Regarding the newly launched project for the installation of
the stripper aimed at isolating ammonia from the plant's wastewater and
reintroducing it into the production line, Afghahi highlighted, "This
project, completed within a year with an investment exceeding 150 billion
rials, will lead to cleaner air and a better environment."
The TAPPICO CEO expressed hope that Khorasan Petrochemicals
would be recognized as an eco-friendly industry. He added, "The
developmental projects at Khorasan Petrochemicals will continue to strengthen
this year, focusing on employing local talents."
The entirety of this project, from design to execution, has
been undertaken by the skilled engineers and specialists at Khorasan
Petrochemicals. The project's benefits include preventing the discharge of
ammonia into urban and rural environments, agricultural lands, and surface
waters, recycling ammonia and urea from the wastewater, and reintegrating it
into the petrochemical production cycle.
This initiative not only benefits the surrounding
environment of the petrochemical complex but also promises economic advantages
by revitalizing agricultural lands and facilitating economic gains through the
recycling of ammonia and urea in the production units.
