Addressing a ceremony to officially launch
the second phase of Takt Jamshid Petrochemical Plant, Parviz Hamidi said on Tuesday
that the plant’s production capacity for elastomers had reached 131,000
tons/year by inauguration of the phase.
Takht Jamshid Petrochemical Company has put
this plan on its agenda in order to supply the required rubber polymers to the
country, he said, adding: “From technical knowledge to the final stages of the
second phase of the project were carried out by domestic experts of HNT Holding
Most of the equipment needed for this
project were built with the capability of local companies.
“More than 90% of the equipment was
provided by local manufacturers.”
He said the second phase of the plant was completed
within a short period of 16 months.
Launching the project, besides covering
the domestic needs of the country in the automotive sector, home appliances,
sports equipment and so on, would make exports possible, hence generating wealth
for the country.
According to him, the plant was environmentally
friendly and would not cause any pollution.
