Iran Indigenizes Production of 36 Catalysts for Industrial Purposes.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian engineers have launched production lines of 36 catalysts required for different sectors of the country's industry, one of the project's researchers said.

19 out of the 36 catalysts are used for petrochemical purposes and 17 other catalysts for production of sulfuric acid, the Iranian students' news agency reported.

Mohammad Mazidi said the team could produce 19 diverse catalysts utilized for petrochemical, distributing and refining industries.

The researcher noted that the country also manufactured 17 acid sulfuric catalysts to be used as acid sulfuric raw material in petrochemical firms. The catalysts include Caesium, Rubidium, upper Vanadium and lower Vanadium in different forms.

He also continued that there are four different bedrocks in acid sulfuric firms, and they need different catalysts when Sulfur dioxide gas is passing through the bedrocks' materials.

The catalysts production lines meet internal needs of the country. Iran has also launched production lines of methanol, ammonium, isomax and ETR catalysts for petrochemical purposes.

Mazidi also noted that indigenizing of the catalysts have saved $50,000 of the country.
