Petchem Industry Ready to Realize “Production Leap”
An official with the National Petrochemical Company (NPC) said the industry was ready to materialize a production leap in the current Iranian calendar year which began on March 21.
Jalal Mirhashemi, NPC’s director of production control, said Iran’s petrochemical industry, given its potentialities and existing infrastructures, was being prepared for a production leap.
Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei has entitled the current calendar as the year of “Production Leap”.
Mirhashemi further said that projects had been devised throughout the country to enhance the sector’s yield in line with the year’s motto.
Moreover, the spare capacity of other facilities will be tapped in order to boost their output and supply new items, he added.
Iran is bracing for the second leap in its petrochemical industry by 2021 which would bring its annual production capacity from currently 66 million tons per year to over 100 mt/y.
