PGPIC to Build Ethylene Plant in Iran's Andimeshk

Construction of a new ethylene oxide plant will begin soon in Andimeshk, Khuzestan Province, director of public relations of Persian Gulf Petrochemical Industries Company said Saturday.

“The plant will help create sustainable employment and complete the value chain of petrochemical products,” Javad Goli was quoted as saying by the Oil Ministry news portal Shana.

With a production capacity of 200,000 tons per year, the plant is estimated to cost $388 million, he said, but did not elaborate on when work would start on the project.

Upon completion, it will also produce ethanol amine, methyl diethanolamine and glycol ether. “These products are used in manufacturing textiles, cosmetics, pesticides, cement, gas sweeteners and detergents among others,” Goli added.

The PGPIC plant will get its ethylene from the southern port city of Asalouyeh, Bushehr Province.

Ethylene is a building block for a vast range of chemicals, from plastics to antifreeze solutions and solvents, and is also used for ripening fruits.

Iran’s annual output of ethylene is about 7.7 million tons. To complete the value chain in the petrochemical sector, the National Petrochemical Company has issued directives for raising ethylene production in Asalouyeh. When projects that are now under construction become operational annual output of ethylene will reach 12.7 million tons.
