TEHRAN (ICIS)—Iran’s Kordestan Petrochemicals and Mahabad Petrochemicals, both subsidiaries of Bakhtar Petrochemical, are expected to start their new polyethylene (PE) plants in 2014, a senior Bakhtar official said on Tuesday.
“Feedstock for the two plants will come from Kavian Petrochemicals’ first cracker through the West Ethylene Pipeline,” Davood Reza Rabhani, managing director of Bakhtar, said on the sidelines of the 10th Iran Petrochemical Forum on Tuesday.
The Kordestan low density PE (LDPE) plant is located at Sanandaj, while the Mahabad LLDPE plant is located at Mahabad. Both plants will have a nameplate capacity of 300,000 tonnes/year each, Rabhani said.
The two-day IPF conference ends on Tuesday.
