Petrochem Firms Using Indigenized Catalysts

Three petrochemical companies in southern Iran have been collaborating with domestic catalyst producers and knowledge-based firms to indigenize catalysts.
Hengam Petrochemical Company on Hengam Island in the Persian Gulf has signed deals with Iranian catalyst providers for the supply of catalysts needed for the production of urea and ammonia, managing director of the company said.
“Eight catalysts are used for urea and ammonia production, of which seven catalysts have been localized and when the last one, ammonia’s synthesis catalyst, is produced locally, the country will no longer need to import them,” Alireza Javanmardi was also quoted as saying by the National Petrochemical Company’s news website Nipna.
The ammonia unit annually produces 726,000 tons and the nominal capacity of the urea unit is 155,000 tons per year.
