The article reports on the projected rise in polymer production in Iran, according to Gholamhossein Nejabat, managing director of Iran's National Petrochemical Co. (NPC). He noted that Iran's production is expected to increase, because its private sector is to bring on stream polymer projects with a total capacity of 2.7 million tonnes/year in the near future. NPC has also formed polyethylene joint ventures with foreign firms such as Sasol, SABIC and a group of Thai and Japanese companies.
