TEHRAN (NIPNA) – Head of the Energy Committee of the Tehran Chamber of Commerce stressed the importance of localizing and commercializing production of petrochemical catalysts in the country.

Reza Padidar said: "With such an approach, we are witnessing currency savings in this field and we are moving towards self-sufficiency with the efforts of Iranian researchers."

Speaking to NIPNA, he said that according to forecasts, localization of catalysts in the petrochemical industry will increase significantly by the end of the current Iranian calendar year which began on March 21.

He said that PRTC along with other companies are seriously eliminating the need for the import of foreign catalysts in the petrochemical industry, and this will lead to a lot of hard currency savings.

He added: "The petrochemical industry is one of the main pillars of the national economy.”

A variety of catalysts are used in the petrochemical industry, but in recent years, fortunately, several types have been localized, and given that the country's technical knowledge in the field of catalyst manufacturing has become localized, cooperation between the administration and the private sector can be a path to self-sufficiency.
