TEHRAN (NIPNA) – Bu Alisina Petrochemical Company is preparing the final stages of setting up the paraxylene unit in cooperation with Iranian companies.

“This unit will be ready for operation in February this year,” said the company’s CEO Ardalan Sedaqatzadeh in a conversation with Shana.

Speaking about the status of implementation of the Paraxylene (PX) unit of Bu Alisina Petrochemical Plant, which had a fire accident in the summer of 2016, the official said: “The new design of the Paraxylene Unit of Bu Alisina has been carried out by an Iranian consultant, and now all the equipment has been installed and are in the launch phase; the insulation and instrumentation of the 8001 furnace is in the final stages, and the connection of the 8001 furnace to the 8001 tower will be completed by the end of the week.”

Stating that the hydrocarbon has already entered the PX unit, he added: “The pre-startup and start-up stages cannot be separated. Pre-commissioning has started in December and we hope that with the end of furnace 8001 operation, which is the last equipment, the commissioning operation will be completed by February and the unit will start production as soon as possible.”

The deputy CEO of Bu Alisina Petrochemical Company continued: “With the exit of this unit from the production circuit, the reformite product of this complex was exported, and if this unit is used, reformite will be converted to the valuable paraxylene as a product.”
