TEHRAN (NIPNA) -- The inauguration of the environmental project for the installation of a stripper at the Khorasan Petrochemical Complex was marked by the presence of the Managing Director of the Tamin Petroleum & Petrochemical Investment Co. (TAPPICO).

According to the Public Relations Office of Khorasan Petrochemical Company, the launch ceremony was attended by Babak Afghahi, CEO of the TAPPICO holding company, Ali Salajegheh, the Deputy President, and the Head of the Environmental Protection Organization, along with officials from North Khorasan province.

Afghahi, speaking at the event, praised the achievements of the Khorasan Petrochemicals Complex, attributing its success to investments made by various pension funds and stating its recent performance as a beacon of hope for the region's development and employment opportunities in North Khorasan and neighboring provinces.

Regarding the newly launched project for the installation of the stripper aimed at isolating ammonia from the plant's wastewater and reintroducing it into the production line, Afghahi highlighted, "This project, completed within a year with an investment exceeding 150 billion rials, will lead to cleaner air and a better environment."

The TAPPICO CEO expressed hope that Khorasan Petrochemicals would be recognized as an eco-friendly industry. He added, "The developmental projects at Khorasan Petrochemicals will continue to strengthen this year, focusing on employing local talents."

The entirety of this project, from design to execution, has been undertaken by the skilled engineers and specialists at Khorasan Petrochemicals. The project's benefits include preventing the discharge of ammonia into urban and rural environments, agricultural lands, and surface waters, recycling ammonia and urea from the wastewater, and reintegrating it into the petrochemical production cycle.

This initiative not only benefits the surrounding environment of the petrochemical complex but also promises economic advantages by revitalizing agricultural lands and facilitating economic gains through the recycling of ammonia and urea in the production units.
