TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- Planning for the inauguration of 12 petrochemical projects, including Hegmataneh Petrochemical Plant, has been carried out in the year of "Production Leap". Once operational, the plant will supply one of the rarest petrochemical products in the world.

Launching Abadan, Ghadir, Bandar Imam and Arvand petrochemical complexes, will bring Iran’s production capacity of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) to around 745,000 tons per year.

Nearly nine years have passed since the inauguration of the country's latest PVC production project, Arvand Petrochemical Plant, and with the operation of this complex, along with increasing the production capacity of PVC, the country's petrochemical production mix has diversified with new grades of suspension and PVC emulsion.

After a decade since the opening and operation of Iran's latest PVC project, the countdown for the launch and commissioning of Hegmataneh Petrochemical Plant with a production capacity of 48,000 tons per year of PVC has started.

The plant will come online in the second half of the current calendar year, which began on March 20.

Once operational, one of the rarest petrochemical items will be produced in the plant which is medical grade of powder and granular PVC. This will turn Iran into an exporters of the item in the world.

Medical grade powder and granular PVC is one of the most unique petrochemical products in the world and only a few countries have limited technology to produce this strategic petrochemical product.
