The National Petrochemical Company has started exporting domestically-produced catalysts to Russian private petrochem companies, the managing director of NPC said.
“NPC has signed deals with Russian petrochem firms, including SIBUR, to provide them catalysts and licenses,” Morteza Shah-Mirzaei was also quoted as saying by the Oil Ministry’s news portal.
SIBUR is one of the world’s fastest-growing petrochemical players and Russia’s leading polymer and rubber manufacturer.
Referring to local firms’ potentials, he noted that Smart Catalyst, based in Garmsar County, Semnan Province, has started the production of 1 ton of ethylbenzene dehydrogenation to styrene catalyst and 3 tons of ammonia synthesis catalyst for the first time in the country.
