Davoud Emadi said that the move was aimed at minimizing environmental
hazards of petrochemical operations in the country.
Stressing the importance of environmental measures to his
department, Emadi said, “Fortunately, petrochemical complexes and plants have
made significant strides in recent years in this regard.”
He said the sector’s move towards green and low-carbon operations
was a strategy in all sectors of the industry, adding that greenhouse gas
emission reduction projects are being implemented in petrochemical companies as
Kermanshah, Razi, Maroon and Shiraz petrochemical plants have made great achievements
in this field.
The official further said that Bandar Emam Petrochemical Plant
had carried out a landfill project with 30,000 tons of capacity which is
regarded as the first standard petrochemical landfill in the industry in Iran.
