SINGAPORE (ICIS news)--State-run National Petrochemical Co (NPC) expects to start up its new 350,000 tonne/year propane dehydrogenation (PDH) plant at Bandar Imam, Iran, by 2011, a source close to the project said on Wednesday.
“The project is already under way and will be privatised after completion,” the source said. NPC is not planning any derivative projects downstream of the PDH unit, he said.
“The propylene will be used to feed the already running as well as planned polypropylene (PP) units at Bandar Imam and also two phenol-acetone projects being planned by private investors at Esfahan and a yet-to-be decided location,” he added.
