Iran among 3 world producers of petrochemical catalysts

Tehran, May 26, IRNA - Producing polypropylene and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) catalysts in an Iranian knowledge-based company known as Iranian Petrochemical Research and Technology Company (PRTC), has put Iran among three world producers of petrochemical catalysts.

On April 16, 2021, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani inaugurated the knowledge-based projects for the production of polypropylene and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) catalysts, which have been implemented for the first time in the country with Iranian technical knowledge.

All the equipment and machinery used in the mentioned catalyst production units have been made inside the country by capable Iranian engineers and experts.

The production capacity of the polypropylene catalyst unit is reported to be 12 tons per year, equivalent to 30 percent of the needs of the country's petrochemical industry; this unit can be further expanded to fully meet the needs of the country.

The HDPE catalyst unit, which has been implemented with CX technology, also has an annual production capacity of 20 tons, equivalent to 25 percent of the petrochemical industry's needs, this unit can also be expanded to fully meet the country's needs.

Catalysts are critical for the operation of petrochemical process units. The value of catalysts used in Iran's petrochemical industry is about $270 million per year.
